Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Well, you wouldn't read my letter if I wrote you
You asked me not to call you on the phone

Allemande left and weave
But, there's something I've been wanting to tell you
Swing and promenade
I wrote it in the words of this song


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) you promenade go halfway 'round
Square thru 4
Go all the way, swing thru, now the boy you run
Ferris wheel go square thru 3
Swing and promenade
You went back to the wild side of life


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

All four ladies chain, turn the girl
Half sashay, circle left
You rollaway, circle left and go
Allemande left and weave
You went to be somebody else's baby
Swing and promenade
Forgot the truest love you ever know


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I didn't know God made honky-tonk angels
I might have known you'd never make a wife

Allemande left and weave
You gave up the only one that ever loved you
And went back to the wild side of life

The Wild Side Of Life
 
 

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 glamor 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

Lyrics by William Warren and Arlie A. Carter.
Recorded by Hank Thompson and many others.
