Song: 	The Promise
By:	Tracy Chapman
Album:	New Beginnings

I haven't yet had the time to write down how it is picked,
but you can figure it out by ear without much trouble.

capo on 4th fret

INTRO:  A  Amaj7/G#  Dmaj9       (repeat)

VERSE:
A  Amaj7/G#  Dmaj9  A/E
If you wait for me
Then I'll come for you
  C#m         Dmaj7       E
Although I've travelled far
  C#m    Dmaj7  D         E7        A -- repeat intro chords twice
I always hold a place for you in my heart

(repeat verse chords)
If you think of me
If you miss me once in a while
Then I'll return to you
I'll return and fill that space in your heart
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tracy_chapman/promise_crd.html ]
CHORUS:
A  E      F#m    Dmaj7       E          A    E F#m
Remembering your touch, your kiss, your warm embrace,
     Dmaj7   E   A    E  F#m
I'll find my way back to you
   Dmaj7    E E7 A  -- repeat intro as before
If you'd be waiting

VERSE:
If you dream of me
Like I dream of you
In a place that's warm and dark
In a place where I can feel the beating of your heart

Oh I've longed for you
And I have desired
To see your face, your smile
To be with you wherever you are

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE:
I've longed for you
And I have desired
To see your face your smile
To be with you wherever you are

LAST CHORUS:
Remembering your touch, your kiss, your warm embrace,
I'll find my way back to you
Please say you'll be waiting

FINALE:
F#m       Dmaj7 E         A       E       F#m
Together again,  it would feel so good to be
       Dmaj7 E      A      E        F#m
In your arms  Where all my journeys end
                   Dmaj7  E        A        E       F#m
If you can make a promise  If it's one that you can keep
  Dmaj7          E        A   E7       A  Amaj7/G#  Dmaj9  A/E  E
I vow to come for you  If you wait for me
    C#m  E     Dmaj9
And say you'll hold
  D         E          A
A place for me in your heart

(sing last line three times over intro chords and quit)
