Back Street Affair
   ------Hank Thompson

BACK STREET AFFAIR
(Billy Wallace - Jimmy Rule)
« © '52 Forrest Hills Music »

You didn't know I wasn't free when you fell in love with me
And with all your young heart you learned to care
It brought you shame and disgrace the world has tumbled in your face
Because they call our love a back street affair
They say you wrecked my home I'm a husband that's gone wrong
They don't know the sorrow that we've had to bear

For the one that I'm tied to was the first to be untrue
And yet they call our love a back street affair

We'll be free to love someday when all the talk has died away
And the happiness we hoped for then we'll share
I will climb a mountain high and the world will hear me cry
That our love is not a back street affair.
