Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by John Lindley and Randy Travis

Cheap perfume and painted faces fallin' angels fill the places
Where I go when my troubles pull me down

And all the lies I know they'll tell me

And the time that they will sell me
D7 G7
For a while I'll be the biggest man in town

Back at home in bed she's crying for her love for me is dying
But she'll pray I make it safely through the night
G7 F
When the morning sun starts showing to her bedside I'll be going
C G7 C
And she'll hold me while I face the morning light

And I'll make promises promises to change
I'll make her promises swear I'll rearrange
And I'll start giving all the love she needs
If only she will stay

And once again she'll reassure me and I believe her love will cure me
And I'll fall asleep with tears on my face

And I know she's just a woman and her love can't last forever
D7 G7
And someday soon I know she'll leave without a trace

For broken promises will tear her dreams apart
Just token promises will someday break her heart
And for the last time she'll hold me when I cry
G7 F G7 C
And while I'm sleeping she'll quietly say goodbye
