Hank Williams III I Promised Lyrics

Last updated: 05/02/2012 11:00:00 AM

She's standing high on cloud nine, believing all my lies
I was trying to win her over, and did to my surprise
I don't have all the things I said I could give her
I promised her a moon that I can't deliver

She'll be hurt when she finds I'm a dead dreamin' fool
Although she might forgive, she won't like being used
I offered her life lined with gold and silver
I promised her the moon that I can't deliver

She's too happy to be hurt so I'll starve for a time
I don't know what I've got that makes her eyes shine
But I've got her heart rollin' like and overflowin' river
I've promised her a moon that I can't deliver

She'll be hurt when she finds I'm a dead dreamin' fool
Although she might forgive, she won't like being used
I offered her life lined with gold and silver
I promised her the moon that I can't deliver

Now I'll face reality with what I've got to thrill her
I promised her a moon, and that's what I'm going to give her
