Basically Am9 will get 4 counts, F6 2 counts, E7 2 counts, back to Am9


E7    Am9  F6      E7       Am9
When I think about the turn my life has taken
         Am9         F6        E7       Am9
I know it’s because of you, that I receive so many blessings
F6    E7 
Am9        F6            E7      Am9          F6          
I had a home but no privacy, I didn’t know a thing about my 
E7
legacy
Am9                         F6            E7         Am9
When I realized you were there for me, I called on your 
F6           E7
name and you came
                 
       Am9          F6       E7   Am9
And you did, just what you said, for that I’ll love you forever
Am9              F6    E7   Am9   
You kept, your word to me, for that I’ll love you forever
F6      E7
Chorus
Am9                             F6         E7
A promise, is a promise in my eyes
Am9                                      F6            E7
Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromise
Am9                                     F6                   E7
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined 
    Am9                               F6       E7
A promise is a promise you can’t deny, there’s no way

I think of when there was a young boy, not even two years old
Blessed with a mother who loved him so, she abandoned her dreams to nourish his own
It wasn’t easy for the two of them, but she knew she had to give him a chance
At a better life, it was only right, so she worked and she prayed
And she did, just what she say, for that he’ll love her forever
She kept her word to him, for that he’ll love her forever

Chorus
A promise is a promise, in my eyes
Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromise
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined 
A promise is a promise you can’t deny, there’s no way
A man’s only as good as his word

Instrumental break


Her wedding day and she’s thinking ‘bout the way he won her affection
She was so cynical about love ‘cause she didn’t want to be heart broken again
He looked her in her eye with sincerity, said he only wanted to protect her so she
Took a chance on him and she’s glad she did because he came for real
And he did, just what he said, for that she’ll love him forever 
He kept his word to her, for that she’ll love him forever

Chorus
A promise is a promise, in my eyes
Can’t say you’re gonna just to compromise
The very thing that keeps two hearts intertwined 
A promise is a promise you can’t deny, there’s no way
No way, there ain’t no way
A man’s only as good as his word
