HANK THOMPSON lyrics - Lovin' On Back Streets

HANK THOMPSON
"Lovin' On Back Streets"

We tried to pick the most unlikely places
Where no one's out to know us by our name
And for a while we shared the sweet affection
That makes it worth the sorrow and the shame
A lovin' on back streets and livin' on main
Suffered hell through the daylight for the heaven darkness brings
Two hearts in the shadows tradin' passion for pain
A lovin' on back streets and livin' on main
In the morning when I face the one who owns me
And she comfronts me with some things I can't explain
Then once again I hate myself for living
And wonder just how long my mind can stand this strain
A lovin' on back streets...
Lovin' on back streets and livin' on main
