One of the great Roy Acuff's first "hits", this song borrows lyrics from an old Southern hymn and marries them to the melody of "I'm Thinking Tonight of My Blue Eyes." It was first recorded in 1938 and has since been covered many times.

Miss Kitty Wells sings her big 1952 #1 hit 'It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels' at the Grand Ole Opry. The songwriter was Jimmy D. Miller. Lyric: As I sit here tonight the jukebox playing The tune about the wild side of life As I listen to the words you are saying It brings mem'ries when I was a trustful wife It was'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 [ fiddle ] 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 ev'ry heart that's ever broken Was because there always was a man to blame It was'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
