"Wild Side of Life" as written by and William/carter Warren....
I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life

The glamor of the gay night-life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flow
Where you wait to be anybody's baby
And forget the truest love you'll ever know

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life

Yes it hurt me to know that you don't love me
Though I know that our love's forever gone
And it's killed my soul and pride, Dear, inside me
When I saw you in that stranger's arms so long

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life

I'll just live my life alone with mem'ries of you
And dream of kisses traded for my tears
And no-one will ever know how much I love you
And I pray that you'll be happy through the years

I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life
