      About "Back Street Affair"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "Back Street Affair"

      You didn't know I wasn't free
      When you fell in love with me
      And with all your young heart you learned to care
      It brought you shame and disgrace
      The world has tumbled in your face
      'Cause they call our love a back street affair

      They say I wrecked your home,
      You're a husband that's gone wrong
      They don't know the sorrow that we had to bear
      For the one I'm tied to
      Was the first to prove untrue
      Now they call our love a back street affair

      We have each other now,
      That's all that matters anyhow
      For the judgment of gossip's never fair
      We'll just be brave and strong
      Then someday they'll see they're wrong
      Let 'em call our love a back street affair

      We'll be free to love someday
      When all the talk has died away
      And the happiness we hoped for then we'll share
      We'll climb a mountain high,
      Then the world will hear us cry
      That our love was not a back street affair
      No, our love was not a back street affair
