"Back Street Affair" as written by and Billy Wallace....
You didn't know I wasn't free when you fell in love with me
And with all your young heart you learned to care
It brought you shame and disgrace the world has tumbled in your place
For they call our love a back street affair
They say you wrecked my home I'm a husband that's gone wrong
They don't know the sorrow that we have to bear
For the one that I'm tied to was the first to prove untrue
Yet they call our love a back street affair
[ fiddle ]
Sweetheart I always knew when I fell in love with you
The heartaches that we would have to bear
I knew a call gets around and that all over town
They would call our love a back street affair
They say I wrecked your life and brought sorrow to your wife
That I was just a girl who didn't seem to care
But if they only knew how she slips around on you
They wouldn't call our love a back street affair
When the mist rolls away we'll be free to love some day
And find happiness that we were made to share
We'll climb a mountain high and the world will hear us cry
That our love is not a back street affair
