Keep your promise Willie Thomas
We pledged our love one day beneath the whispering maple tree
You made a promise Willie Thomas
That all the leaves would still be green when you returned to me.

But my heart is chilled and my eyes are filled
As I watch the leaves of red and brown fall sadly to the ground
You must keep your promise Willie Thomas
There'll be on spring until you bring your love again to me.

--- Instrumental ---

I shall keep my promise Willie Thomas
I pledged my love to you beneath the whispering maple tree
So I'll keep my promise Willie Thomas
Though all the leaves might not be green when I return to thee.

Let your heart not be chilled nor your eyes be filled
'Cause I love you though you say the leaves are falling slowly down
So I'll keep my promise Willie Thomas
And there'll be spring cause with the birds I'll sing my love again to you
Keep your promise Willie Thomas...
