What Did I Promise Her Last Night

Song Author Ronald McCown og Wayne P. Walker Performer: Mel Tillis Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]There she lies still sleeping dreaming
The whole world is in her [D7]hands
What she thought was love last night
Was just the wine and the weakness in a [G]man  


But now the passion's gone and all that's left
Is cold gray facts and cold gray morning [C]light
As I pr[D7]omptly close the door
I wonder what did I promise her last [G]night


I guess I should have wakened her
And told her that I must be moving [D7]on   
But I told myself the truth might hurt her worse
Than waking up to find me [G]gone


But my conscience knows the truth
And it's so hard to convince myself I'm [C]right
And as [D7]I slowly drive away I wonder
What did I promise her last [G]night


I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading [D7]home   
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came [G]along


How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that [C]right
And as[D7] I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last [G]night


I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading [D7]home   
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came [G]along


How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that [C]right
And as[D7] I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last [G]night

There she lies still sleeping dreaming
The whole world is in her hands
What she thought was love last night
Was just the wine and the weakness in a man

But now the passion's gone and all that's left
Is cold gray facts and cold gray morning light
As I promptly close the door
I wonder what did I promise her last night

I guess I should have wakened her
And told her that I must be moving on
But I told myself the truth might hurt her worse
Than waking up to find me gone

But my conscience knows the truth
And it's so hard to convince myself I'm right
And as I slowly drive away I wonder
What did I promise her last night

I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading home
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came along

How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that right
And as I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last night

I guess by now she's waking up
And packing up her things and heading home
With memories of a temporary love
She wishes never came along

How many one-night stands must she go through
Before she finds a love that right
And as I'm driving down the road I wonder
What did I promise her last night
