            PAYING FOR THAT BACKSTREET AFFAIR
Kitty Wells
Banjo tuned E, Capo 3, Key of F



  F                 Bb        F
Yes, I thought that you were true
                          C
When I fell in love with you
    F                     Bb            F
For you told me you always would play square
                         C
Then I learned you had a home
          F         Bb       F
That your wife had not gone wrong
                         C          F
And our love was just a backstreet affair

Was too late to say no
When I found you'd fooled me so
For as time passed on I'd learned too much to care
Though I knew I must atone
But my will was not my own
I'm paying for that backstreet affair
You didn't count the cost You gambled and I lost Now I must pay with hours of deep despair You still can live your life With a true, forgiving wife But I can't live down our backstreet affair The love I gave so free Is left to torture me Though I know it's hopeless and it isn't fair But, still I must go on While the gossips spread are wrong I'm paying for that backstreet affair
