BACK STREET AFFAIR (Billy Wallace / Jimmy Rule) Webb Pierce - 1952 Billy Walker - 1952 Johnny Bond - 1952 Kitty Wells - 1956 Hank Thompson - 1962 Carl Smith - 1964 Hank Locklin - 1965 Roy Drusky & Priscilla Mitchell - 1965 Conway Twitty - 1970 Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn - 1971 Willie Nelson & Webb Pierce - 1982 John Prine & Patty Loveless - 1999 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 face Because 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've had to bear For the one that I'm tied to was the first to be untrue And yet they call our love a back street affair (Instrumental Break) We have each other now, that's all that matters anyhow Oh, the judgement of gossip's never fair We'll just be brave and strong, then someday they'll see they're wrong So let them call our love a back street affair We'll be free to love someday when all the talk has died away And the happiness we've hoped for then we'll share I'll climb a mountain high and the world will hear me cry That our love is not a back street affair ********** As recorded by Conway Twitty & Loretta Lynn: CONWAY: 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 face 'Cause 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 (Instrumental Break) LORETTA: Sweetheart, I always knew when I fell in love with you The heartache that we would have to bear I knew how talk 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 BOTH: When the mist rolls away, we'll be free to love some day And find happiness that we were meant to share We'll climb a mountain high and the world will hear us cry That our love is not a back street affair (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2010)
