MICKEY GILLEY lyrics - Wild Side Of Life

MICKEY GILLEY
"Wild Side Of Life"

You wouldn't read my letters if I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone
But there's something I'm wanting to tell you
So I wrote it in the words of this song.

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 really loves you
And went back to the wild side of life.

I'll just live my life alone with mem'ries of you
And I dream of kisses you 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 who really loves you
And went back to the wild side of life...
