Instrumental verse 1st 2 stanzas-guitar lick

Vs. 1: e                                    a                      e

Ask me why i’m walking around

A                     e                                  b                      b

Upside down two feet off the ground

E                      e                      a                      e

Ask me how it happened to be

A                     e                                  b                      b

This happiness just happened to me

A                                 b                           e    

She made promises to me

 

Vs. 2: Tell me how     the sun in the sky

Shining so bright         gives off such a light

Show me where the moon up above

Shines such a light as on our love

She made promise to me, yeah,  she made promises to me

 

Br. 1: a                                                   e                       a                                          b

She promised to be my one, she promised to be my only

A                     e                      a                                                          bsus     b

She promised to be my love, and never to leave me lonely

 

Instrumental verse—(solo follows verse form)

She made promise to me, yeah,  she made promises to me

 

Br. 2: She promised to be my one      she promised to be my only

She promised to be my love, and never to leave me lonely

 

Vs. 2:

A promise is made a promise is kept

A promenade   step by step

That is why, day after day

I see the promise in every way

She made promise to me, yeah,     she made promises to me

She made promise to me, yeah,     she made promises to me
