​Promised to John

This song is by Anita Carter and appears on the compilation album Appalachian Angel: Her Recordings 1950-1972 & 1996 (2004).

I'm promised to John promised to John
Can't you see that I'm promised to John

I saw her on the square and I fell in love right there
Though I was told she was promised to John
I followed her in a store and I loved her even more
Though I knew she was promised to John

I'm promised to John promised to John
Don't you know I'm promised to John
And his heart would surely break if I made this mistake
Can't you see that I'm promised to John

I said let's take a walk someplace where we can talk
Yes I know that you're promised to John
It won't hurt anyone we'll just have a little fun
'Cause I know that you're promised to John
We walked behind a tree and she gave her lips to me
Even though she was promised to John
And I guess she's with him now she should be anyhow
'Cause she said she was promised to John

I'm promised to John promised to John
Don't you know I'm promised to John
And his heart would surely break if I made this mistake
Can't you see that I'm promised to John
Can't you see I'm promised to John
Don't you know I'm just promised to John
