Dolly Parton

It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels

Song Information
By: J.D. Miller
Original Appearance: Honky Tonk Angels
Compilations: None
Alternate Versions: None

As I sit here tonight, the jukebox playin'
The tune about the wild side of life
As I listen to the words you are saying
It brings memories when I was a trusting wife

Chorus:

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
As you wrote in the words of your song
Too many times married men think they're still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong

It's a shame that all the blame is on us women
It's not true that only you men feel the same
From the start most every heart that's ever broken
Was because there always was a man to blame

Chorus:

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
Like you said in the words of your song
Too many times married men think they're still single
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong
That has caused many a good girl to go wrong
