"honest to God and hope to die."
"cross my heart and hope to die"
While "cross my heart and hope to die" was certainly in current usage among
the kids I grew up with in Lincoln NE in the 30s, my impression is that
"honest to God" was more likely to have been heard from adults. I can't
remember ever hearing "honest to God" & "and hope to die" together.
