[D] [A] [D]  
You didn't [D]know I wasn't free
When you [G]fell in love with [D]me
And with all your young [A]heart you learned to [D]care
It brought you [D]shame and disgrace
The world has [G]tumbled in your [A]face
Cause they call our love a [A]back street af[D]fair
They [D]say I wrecked your home,
You're a [G]husband that's gone [D]wrong
They don't know the sorrow [A]that we had to [D]bear
For the [D]one I'm tied to
was the [G]first to prove un[A]true
Now they call our love a [A]back street af[D]fair
Break: D G D A D
[D] [G] [D] [A] [D]  
We [D]have each other now,
That's [G]all that matters any[D]how
For the judgment of [A]gossip's never [D]fair
We'll [D]just be brave and strong
Then some[G]day they'll see they're [A]wrong
Let em [D]call our love a [A]back street af[D]fair
We'll be [D]free to love someday
When all the [G]talk has died a[D]way
and the happiness we [A]hoped for then we'll [D]share
We'll [D]climb a mountain high,
then the [G]world will hear us [A]cry
That our [D]love was not a [A]back street af[D]fair
No, our [D]love was not a [A]back street aff[D]air[G] [D]
