CRANKY YANKEE songs of love lust and loose living. (18) RE: songs of love lust and loose living. 23 Dec 01


The Wild Side of Life (melody same as "I'm thinkin' tonight of my blue eyes"
Recorded by Hank Thompson, around 1953-54 or so

You wouldn't read the letter that I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone
But, there's something I've been 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 who ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life.

The glamour of the gay night life has lured you
To the places where the wine and liquor flows
There you wait to be anybody's darling
And give usp the truest love you'll ever know
