Recorded by Kitty Wells and Red Foley
Written by Carol Johnson
[C]We have too many se[C7]crets you and [F]me
Cause [C]you belong to her and I’m not [G7]free
[C]Our friendship turned [C7]into a love [F]affair
And our [C]families just don’t [F]know the dates we [C]shared
We’re looking over our shoulder [G7]for her or him
We’re searching for a place where lights are [C]low and dim
We’re looking over our shoulder a[C7]fraid we might be [F]seen
By [C]him or her how [G7]could we be so [C]mean
We didn’t mean for [C7]it to go this [F]far
Each [C]day would be the last but here we [G7]are
[C]We’ve got to stop we’ll [C7]drag our honor [F]down
Or [C]always in the [F]darkness we’ll be [C]found
By him or her how [G7]could we be so [C]mean[/chordpress]

Who is Kitty Wells?
– Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a barrier to women in country music with her 1952 hit recording “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”, which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts and turned her into the first female country superstar. â€œIt Wasnâ€™t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angelsâ€ would also be her first of several pop crossover hits. Wells is the only artist to be awarded top female vocalist awards for 14 consecutive years. Her chart-topping hits continued until the mid 1960s, paving the way for and inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s.
Wells ranks as the sixth most successful female vocalist in the history of the Billboard country charts, according to historian Joel Whitburn’s book The Top 40 Country Hits. In 1976, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1991, Wells became the third country music artist, after Roy Acuff and Hank Williams, and the eighth woman to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Wells’ success and influence on country music garnered her the title “Queen of Country Music”.
