Broken Promise Land  Waylon Jennings

There's a bi[G]ble on the dre[D]sser,
and a si[C]gn hung on the door,
and a wo[D]man in my ar[C]ms that shouldn't b[G]e.
I'm to the po[G]int of no retu[D]rning,
but I'[C]ve been here before.
This chea[D]ting life is not[C]hing new to [G]me.
There's som[G]eone to be cons[D]idered,
I c[C]all her on the phone,
and say the j[D]ob is taking lo[C]nger than I pla[G]nned
I dont ha[G]ve the heart to t[D]ell her,
that a stra[C]nger turned me on,
and I'm hea[D]ding for the br[C]oken promise l[G]and


Ton[G]ight I'm crossing o[C]ver
and I'll re[D]ach the cheating s[Em]ide
and I'll h[G]ate myself for co[D]ming here ag[Am]ain.
[G]Where the streets are paved with mis[C]ery
and li[D]ves are built on l[Em]ies,
the pl[G]ace they call the bro[D]ken promise l[C]and


Found the no[G]te left on the dre[D]sser,
and the k[C]ey left in the door,
and on the fl[D]oor I found her go[C]lden wedding b[G]and.
Guess she fi[G]nally had to t[D]ell me,
she's not wa[C]iting here no more,
and she he[D]ading for the br[C]oken promise la[G]nd.


[G]Tonight she's crossing o[C]ver
and she'll re[D]ach the cheating s[Em]ide
[G]and I'll hate myself for gi[D]ving her the ch[Am]ance.
'Cause the str[G]eets are paved with mi[C]sery
and li[D]ves are built on l[Em]ies.
The pl[G]ace they call the br[D]oken promise la[C]nd.
[G]...and its more than I can st[C]and.
