Chorus

Am9A promise, is a promise in my eyF6es E7 Am9Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromiseF6 E7 Am9The very thing that keeps two hearts intF6ertwined E7 A prAm9omise is a promise you can’t deny,F6 there’s E7no way I think of when there was a young boy, not even two years old Blessed with a mother who loved him so, she abandoned her dreams to nourish his own It wasn’t easy for the two of them, but she knew she had to give him a chance At a better life, it was only right, so she worked and she prayed And she did, just what she say, for that he’ll love her forever She kept her word to him, for that he’ll love her forever

Chorus

A promise is a promise, in my eyes Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromise The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined A promise is a promise you can’t deny, there’s no way A man’s only as good as his word

Instrumental break

Her wedding day and she’s thinking ‘bout the way he won her affection She was so cynical about love ‘cause she didn’t want to be heart broken again He looked her in her eye with sincerity, said he only wanted to protect her so she Took a chance on him and she’s glad she did because he came for real And he did, just what he said, for that she’ll love him forever He kept his word to her, for that she’ll love him forever

Chorus

A promise is a promise, in my eyes Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromise The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined A promise is a promise you can’t deny, there’s no way No way, there ain’t no way A man’s only as good as his word
