I Promised You The World Lyrics

I had dreams bigger than the Montana sky
And we were gonna do great in Great Falls
I just knew we were this time
But when winter finally broke, so were we
You'll never know how bad that hurt
'Cause this will ain't what I meant
When I promised you the world
I lost the farm in Kansas
Along with a lot of my pride
Then I almost lost my life
Down in the West Virginia mine
And that motel room in Mephis
Was a long way from diamonds and pearls
And that sure ain't what I meant
When I promised you the world
Chorus:
I swear your love is stronger
Than any dream of mine I've ever drug you through
And I swear I wasn't lyin'
They just never did come true
You've always bet on this old gambler
Every time I gave the wheel a whirl
But this aint' what I meant
When I promised you the world
Now this Shreveport sun is settin'
On another broken dream of mine
And I guess that mansion on the hill
Is pretty hard to see tonight
But as long as there's a breath of life in me
I'm gonna get it for you, girl
'Cause this ain't what I meant
When I promised you the world
Repeat Chorus
No, this sure ain't what I meant
When I promised you the world
