Waylon Jennings & Jessi Colter - Honky Tonk Angels


[Intro]

A  B7  E


[Verse]
(Waylon)

    E                            A
You wouldn't read my letter if I wrote you
    B7                              E
You asked me not to call you on the phone
                                     A
But there's something I'm wanting to tell you
     B7                            E
So I wrote it in the words of this song


[Chorus]

         E                         A
I didn't know God made honky tonk angels
  B7                                  E     
I might have known you'd never make a wife
                                   A
You gave up the only one who ever loved you
         B7                       E
And went back to the wild side of life


[Verse]
(Jessi)

     D                             G
As I sit here tonight, the jukebox playin'
     A7                          D
Your song about the wild side of life
                                 G
As I listen to the words you are sayin'
          A7                                D
It brings memories of when I was a trusting wife


[Chorus]

          D                       G
It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
       A7                       D
As you say in the words of your song
                                         G
Too many times married men think they're single
         A7                            D
And it's caused many a good girl to go wrong


[Chorus]
(Jessi and Waylon)

          D                       G
It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels
  A7                                  D
I might have known you'd never make a wife
                                         G
Too many times married men think they're single
       A7                       D
And go back to the wild side of life
        A7                       D     A7  D
They go back to the wild side of life

Thanks for the arrangement. I only play classic country songs. The new songs are not as good as these.
