Loretta Lynn - Wings Upon Your Horns lyrics

 

Before you first made love to me you called me your wife to be

And after that I saw the devil in your eyes

With your sweet smooth talkin' ways you turned a flame into a blaze

The night I let you hang my wings upon your horns

 

Don't tell me that I'm no saint I'm the first to know I ain't

There's a little thing called love and that's what changed me

From an innocent country girl to a woman of the world

The night I let you hang my wings upon your horns

 

You hung my wings upon your horns and turned my halo into thorns

And turned me to a woman I can't stand

You're the first to ever make me fall in love and then not take me

The night I let you hang my wings upon your horns

 

You hung my wings upon your horns and turned my halo into thorns

And turned me to a woman I can't stand

You're the first to ever make me fall in love and then not take me

The night I let you hang my wings upon your horns
