What Did I Promise Her Last Night   
recorded by Mel Tillis
written by Ronald McCown and Wayne P. Walker
 

G
There she lies still sleeping dreaming
                          D7
The whole world is in her hands
                                        
What she thought was love last night
                                        G
Was just the wine and the weakness in a man

                                         
But now the passion's gone and all that's left
                                         C
Is cold gray facts and cold gray morning light
       D7                            
As I promptly close the door
                                     G 
I wonder what did I promise her last night
 
                                    
I guess I should have wakened her
                                   D7
And told her that I must be moving on
                          
But I told myself the truth might hurt her worse
                          G
Than waking up to find me gone

                                    
But my conscience knows the truth
                                        C
And it's so hard to convince myself I'm right
       D7                   
And as I slowly drive away I wonder
                            G
What did I promise her last night
 
                                       
I guess by now she's waking up
                                      D7
And packing up her things and heading home
                      
With memories of a temporary love
                      G
She wishes never came along

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