INTRO: G C G C
G D There's a bible on the dresser,
C and a sign hung on the door,
D C G and a woman in my arms that shouldn't be.
G D I'm to the point of no returning,
C but I've been here before.
D C G This cheating life is nothing new to me.
G D There's someone to be considered,
C I call her on the phone,
D C G and say the job is taking longer than I planned
G D I dont have the heart to tell her,
C that a stranger turned me on,
D C G and I'm heading for the broken promise land
G C Tonight I'm crossing over
D Em and I'll reach the cheating side
G D Am and I'll hate myself for coming here again.
G C Where the streets are paved with misery
D Em and lives are built on lies,
G D C the place they call the broken promise land
G D Found the note left on the dresser,
C and the key left in the door,
D C G and on the floor I found her golden wedding band.
G D Guess she finally had to tell me,
C she's not waiting here no more,
D C G and she heading for the broken promise land.
G C Tonight she's crossing over
D Em and she'll reach the cheating side
G D Am and I'll hate myself for giving her the chance.
G C 'Cause the streets are paved with misery
D Em and lives are built on lies.
G D C The place they call the broken promise land.
G C ...and its more than I can stand.
