Song lyrics
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.

Chorus:
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 flow
Where you wait to be anybodys baby
And forget the truest love you'll ever know.

It hurt me to know that you don't love me
Though I know that our love's forever gone
And it killed my soul and pride,dear, inside me
When I saw you in that strangers arms so long.

Chorus:
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.

I'll just live my life alone with mem'ries of you
And dream of kisses you traded for my tears
And no one will ever know how much I loved you
And I pray that you'll be happy through the years.

Chorus:
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...
