INRTO: G C G C

VERSE:
            G             D
There's a bible on the dresser,
        C                                                   
and a sign hung on the door,
        D           C                  G                               
and a woman in my arms that shouldn't be.
             G             D
I'm to the point of no returning,
      C 
but I've been here before.
         D               C           G
This cheating life is nothing new to me.
           G              D
There's someone to be considered,
   C
I call her on the phone,
             D              C              G
and say the job is taking longer than I planned
         G                D
I dont have the heart to tell her,
           C
that a stranger turned me on,
           D              C             G
and I'm heading for the broken promise land


CHORUS:

   G                  C
Tonight I'm crossing over 
           D                 Em
and I'll reach the cheating side
          G                D           Am
and I'll hate myself for coming here again.
G                                   C
Where the streets are paved with misery
      D                 Em
and lives are built on lies,
      G                    D            C
the place they call the broken promise land


VERSE:

            G                 D
Found the note left on the dresser,
         C
and the key left in the door,
             D                 C             G
and on the floor I found her golden wedding band.
            G             D            
Guess she finally had to tell me, 
            C             
she's not waiting here no more,
          D               C              G
and she heading for the broken promise land.


CHORUS:

G                       C
Tonight she's crossing over 
             D                 Em
and she'll reach the cheating side
G                          D              Am
and I'll hate myself for giving her the chance.
              G                     C
'Cause the streets are paved with misery
      D                 Em
and lives are built on lies.
      G                   D              C
The place they call the broken promise land.
G                            C
...and its more than I can stand.
