Well, you wouldn't read my letters if I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone
There's something I've been waiting for to tell you
So I wrote it in the words of this song

You never knew there were honky tonk angels
Or you might have known, I'd never make a wife
You walked out on the only one who ever loved you
So I went on back to the wild side of life

Now the climate of all the good life, oh has led me
To the places where the wine and the liquor flow
I tried to be your one and only angel
But I'm not that kind of angel heaven knows
No, no, no

I cried so hard the day you went and left me
'Cause the things you said they cut me like a knife
What you wanted was another kind of angel
And you sent me back to the wild side of life, no

Well, I guess I'm just a honky tonk angel
And I might have known I'd never make a wife
Well, you left the only one who ever loved you
And I'm back here on the wild side of life

I'm only a honky tonk angel
And I might have known I'd never make a wife
You walked out on the only one who ever loved you
And you left me here on the wild side of life
