Linda Davis – If Promises Were Gold lyrics

(Shawna Harrington-Burkhart/Karl Hasten)

She knows three years was too long to keep waitin
But somehow she was hopin she would change him
Still all his words turned to dust
And who can survive in a love without trust

If promises were gold she could pay off all the bills
And buy that pretty house sitting high on the hill
If she only had the money for every lie she's been told
She'd be a rich woman now, if promises were gold

By six o'clock he'll miss her rusty Chevy
Won't take long to notice dinner isn't ready
Then he'll call up everyone she knows
Sayin I'll do her right if she'll only come home

If promises were gold she could pay off all the bills
And buy that pretty house sitting high on the hill
If she only had the money for every lie she's been told
She'd be a rich woman now, if promises were gold

She didn't take much
Just the heart she once wore on her sleeve
She's leaving behind
Every line she tried to believe

If promises were gold she could pay off all the bills
And buy that pretty house sitting high on the hill
If she only had the money for every lie she's been told
She'd be a rich woman now, if promises were gold
