(Wiley Smith - Carlyle Hughey)

You've promised you would be true to me
But we both know you could never be
You've been a puttin' me on since the day we met
Promises promises that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get.

Then you promised me a ring a weddin' gown and all them things
But I ain't seen no diamond yet
Promises promises that's all I ever get that's all I ever get
Promises promises that's all I get.

All you gave me since the day we met
You'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises promises that's all I ever get
That's all I ever get.

--- Instrumental ---

And now you tell me you've gone away
You swear to me that this time you'll stay
I can't believe that I'm rid of you yet
Promises promises that's all I ever get, that's all I ever get.

Promises promises that's all I get
All you gave me since the day we met
You'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises promises that's all I ever get
That's all I ever get.

All you gave me since the day we met
You'll break my heart in two again I bet
Promises promises that's all I ever get
That's all I ever get...
This song is from the album "A Real Good Woman".
