A Promise You Can't Keep
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I heard you swear your love this morning
And it caught me almost wanting to believe
The three little words that serve as warning
And say it's just a promise you can't keep

A statement that's been so used
I felt compelled to tell you
But knew there wasn't much to say
I could have threatened leavin'
Or listed hopeless reasons
If I didn't have this need to stay

Three little words should be my warning
'Cause I know that it's a promise you can't keep

A statement that's been so used
I felt compelled to tell you
But knew there wasn't much to say
I could have threatened leavin'
Or listed hopeless reasons
If I didn't have this need to stay

Three little words should be my warning
'Cause I know that it's a promise you can't keep

I heard you swear your love this morning

Saw him play at Foxwoods 2years ago, hope he gets back up this way soon. GREAT SHOW

Scott Irwin

His level of talent and body of work is incredible. Obviously an amazing artist. But no matter how big a star he is, he will always be underrated. No amount of notoriety will do him justice

Elaine Smith

Love the song I would keep all my promises

Louise Rawle

Every time I hear his glorious voice I fall in love with him
