You wouldn't read my letter 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 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 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
