Promises
By Randy Travis
               E
Cheap perfume and painted faces, __ 

fallen angles fill the places 
             A                                             E
Where I go when my troubles pull me down

All the lies I know they'll tell me, __ 

and the time that they will sell me 
         F#m7                                       B 
For a while I'll be the biggest man in town
               E                
Back at home in bed she's crying, __ 

for her love for me is dying
        A                                                     E   
But she'll pry I make it safely through the night
                 B7                                                    
When the mornin' sun starts showing, ___
          A
to her bedside I'll be going
                  E                     B7                      E  
And she'll hold me while I face the morning light _____
                            E
* And I'll make promises ___ 

promises to change 
                        G#
I'll make her promises swear I'll rearrange 
                       A                                           
And I'll start giving all the love she needs 
          B7                     A  B
if only she will stay____
            E
Once again she'll reasure me and 

I believe her love will cure me
              A                                      E
And I'll fall asleep with tears on my face

Lord I know she's just a woman 

and her love can't last forever
                       F#m7                                    
And someday soon I know she'll 
B                      B7
leave without a trace
                       E
For broken' promises ___ 

will tear her dreams apart
                    G#
Just token promises will someday break her heart
                    A
                                                                        
And for the last time she'll hold me when I cry 
                       B7
and while I'm sleeping
           A      B  A/B           C                      D/C        E
She'll quiet--ly say  “goodbye” __________
