Kitty Wells performs "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" on Second Fiddle To A Steel Guitar movie.

"It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" is a 1952 country song written by J. D. "Jay" Miller, and originally recorded by Kitty Wells. It was an answer song to the Hank Thompson hit "The Wild Side of Life."

The song — which blamed unfaithful men for creating unfaithful women,became the first No. 1 Billboard country hit for a solo female artist. In addition to helping establish Wells as country music's first major female star, "It Wasn't God..." paved the way for other female artists, particularly Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette,and songs where women defied the typical stereotype of being submissive to men and putting up with their often unfaithful ways.

Kitty Wells - It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels Lyrics

 

As I sit here tonight, the jukebox playin'

The tune about the wild side of life

As I listen to the words you are sayin'

It brings memories when I was a trustful wife

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels

As 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

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

It wasn't God who made honky tonk angels

As 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
