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
