Lefty Frizzell Lyrics – Promises

How can I believe that you won’t deceive
All I get from you are words that don’t come true
Believe me all the things I hear are going through my ears
But you never ever make them true my dear

Stop making promises promises promises
That’s all I get from you
I can’t believe your promises
They never do come true

Don’t make me promises promises promises
Although they’re nice to hear
If you can’t keep your promises
Please, don’t make them my dear
