The Promise
Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson

D7 G A7
You gave me back my soul again by showing me
C D7 G D7
The laughter and the wonder in your eyes
G A7
Saved me from the shuttered man I used to be
C D7 G D7
Opened up the windows of my life

G A7
And the happiness you've given me for loving you
C D7 G D7
Is sweeter love and deeper every day
G A7
I can't stop the changes that you're growing through
C D7 G
Or someone new from stealing you away

D7 G C
So darling when it's time you can spread your wings
G C G D7
And I'll set you free to fly away and it's ok
Cause darling time changes everything but it won't change me
G D7
I love you oh I love you

G A7
Inside of me you'll always be my valentine
C D7 G D7
I pray your freedom makes your dreams come true
G A7
As long as there's a heartbeat in this soul of mine
C D7 G
You'll know there's someone so in love with you

Repeat #3
