Makin' Promises  
Recorded by The Bellamy Brothers
Written by David Bellamy and Donald Alan Schlitz

D7 G C D7 G C D7
I was standing on a corner watching all the people walk by
G C D7 G C D7
This woman child approached me her hemline was reaching for the sky
Em C
She knew what she was doing just as well as me
Em C D7
She knew that I was tempted by her physicality

G C D7 G C D7
But I kept my wits about me I was willing to make a mockery
C D7 G C D7
Cause her body made a promise that I knew her heart could not keep
G C D7 G C D7
As she paraded by me a limousine pulled right up to the curb
A well dressed older man just stepped out
G C D7
And kissed her lips without a word

Em C
He wrapped his arms around her and they made some secret plans
Em C D7
But I was close enough to see the ring upon his hand
G C D7 G C D7
And I took his wave goodbye just like a child as he rode down the street
C D7 G C
But I knew his body made a promise that his heart could not keep

D7 C G
A part of me just wanted to applaud their passing play
D7 C D7 C G C
But I closed my eyes and said a prayer then I walked away I walked away

D7 G C D7 G C D7
I came home to this little old brick house you met me at the door
G C D7 G C D7
You told me that you loved me and I understood it better than before
Em C
I took you in my arms and thanked the good Lord up above
Em C D7
For showing me the difference between lust and love

G C D7 G C D7
And tonight when we’re lying in our bed before we go to sleep
C D7 G C D7
Our bodies will make promises that our hearts can keep
G D7 G
Yes our bodies will make promises that our hearts will keep
