A Promise to Keep
Brandi Carlile
Downpour 7" Vinyl Single

I didn't include the fills, the intro and the outro, 'cause they're easy to figure 
out. Just look at the tab I below. I haven't heard the actual track, just listened 
to the song on YouTube, so it might differ from the original version.

G D     G    D  C         G
I still talk to you in my sleep
  G     C   G    C         Am            D
I don't say much cause the hurt runs too deep
  C            G            Am       G
I gave you the moon and the stars to keep
G   C   G    C    Em             C
but you gave them back to me
             G           Am      G        D x 4      C
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep
              G             Am           G       D x 4              
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep


G D     G   D     C           G
I still lay on my side of the bed
  G     C  G  C        Am            D
I dance alone when the last bottle's spent
C               G            Am         G
Memories like a river runnin through my head
     G    C     G  C  Em               C
I'll have me an ocean before I'm dead
             G            Am     G        D x 4
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep
        C     G             Am           G       D x 4
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep


G D     G   D   C              G
I still whisper sweet words to you
    G    C   G C           Am         D
and when I'm busy, or have nothing to do
  C       G            Am         G
I pray to god, that my words ring true
    G    C    G     C     Em             C
and that your words might reach me too
             G            Am     G        D x 4
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep
        C     G             Am           G       D x 2
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep
Dsus4 x 2
I can't keep it


   G      D  G  D      C           G
My hearts in pieces so please understand
     G     C  G     G        Am         D
I've tried to jump, but I've nowhere to land
   C            G              Am          G
So give me your heart and I'll give you my hand
         G  C  G  C     Em             C
And I'll try as goddamn hard as I can
             G            Am     G        D x 4
The hill I'm walkin up is gettin good and steep
        C     G             Am           G       D x 4
but I'm still looking for a promise even I can't keep

Capo on 3rd or 4th! They've played the song in both keys. My mistake. :)
