One Promise Too Late  Reba McEntire


One Promise Too Late
as recorded by Reba McEntire

[C]I would have [G]waited for[F]ever
if I'd k[C]nown that you'd be [Am]here.
[F]We could have [C]shared our lives [G]together
and [Dm]held each o[F]ther close [G]all through the [G7]years.
But I met someone before you
and my heart just wouldn't wait,
So no matter how much I adore you
I've got to stand behind this promise that I made.
Where were [Am]you [F]when I could have [C]loved you?
Where were [Am]you when I [F]gave my heart [G]awa[G7]y?
All my [F]life, [G]I've been d[Am]reaming of [F]you
You came al[C]ong one [G]promise too [Am]lat[F]e
You came al[C]ong one [G]promise too [C]late.
[Em]I won't say that I'm [Am]sorry that I met you.
[Em]I can't have you but I [F]never will f[G]orget y[G7]ou.
Where were you when I could have loved you?
Where were you when I gave my heart away?
All my life, darling, I've been dreaming of you.
You came along one promise too late.
You came along one promise too late.
