A Promise To Keep

	  		
verse 1 

G D     G    D  C         G 
I still talk to you in my sleep 
  G     C   G    C         Am            D 
I don't say much cause the hurt runs too deep 
  C            G            Am       G 
I gave you the moon and the stars to keep 
G   C   G    C    Em             C 
but you gave them back to me 
             G           Am      G        D x 4      C 
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep 
              G             Am           G       D x 4               
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep 


verse 2 

G D     G   D     C           G 
I still lay on my side of the bed 
  G     C  G  C        Am            D 
I dance alone when the last bottle's spent 
C               G            Am         G 
Memories like a river runnin through my head 
     G    C     G  C  Em               C 
I'll have me an ocean before I'm dead 
             G            Am     G        D x 4 
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep 
        C     G             Am           G       D x 4 
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep 


verse 3 

G D     G   D   C              G 
I still whisper sweet words to you 
    G    C   G C           Am         D 
and when I'm busy, or have nothing to do 
  C       G            Am         G 
I pray to god, that my words ring true 
    G    C    G     C     Em             C 
and that your words might reach me too 
             G            Am     G        D x 4 
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep 
        C     G             Am           G       D x 2 
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep 
Dsus4 x 2 
I can't keep it 


verse 4 

   G      D  G  D      C           G 
My hearts in pieces so please understand 
     G     C  G     G        Am         D 
I've tried to jump, but I've nowhere to land 
   C            G              Am          G 
So give me your heart and I'll give you my hand 
         G  C  G  C     Em             C 
And I'll try as goddamn hard as I can 
             G            Am     G        D x 4 
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep 
        C     G             Am           G       D x 4 
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep
