KT Tunstall – ‘Hold On’             Tabbed by Robbie Adamson

Intro: Am-Em  x8

Am-Em rpt           
Say you, to me…… You’re a bird with an eye for anything shiny
Searching the land for a hero of a man
Am-Em rpt         
You say I need more than my fair share of attention
But I think you know that just isn't so 
Am        E      C                  D         
Oh underneath I felt the fire of a burning question
A       E       C                  E
Tearing me apart…… right from the very start
A          E            C                           D
And now I see……that it don’t take a trick off the light to excite me
A       E        
So strong .. so long……you’ll see

Am          Dm           E      Am
Hold On to what you been given lately ( been given lately )
Am          Dm        E          Am
Hold on to what you know you’ve got
Am          Dm           E        Am
Hold on to what you been given lately
Am                  Dm                        E        Am
Hold on 'cause the world will turn if you’re ready or not

Am  Bm   C  D,   Am  Bm  E 

 A       E      C                    D
Simplicity……A heart of gold, an old head on young shoulders
A         E      C           E             
Quiet and lovely…… Becomin' part of me 
A           E          C                       D
and now I see……from a handful of names and a thousand faces
A        C       E
One light Burning fiercely

Am               Bm     C               D
I was tired of January, I was tired of June
A            Bm            C    D
  I felt a change a coming,      Ooah oh oh
A         Bm       C          D 
Tired of January,   tired of June
A          Bm               C    D
 I felt a change a coming   Ooahh oh oh 
A         E               C          D
I felt a change a coming, I felt a change a coming
A        E              C      D
felt a change a coming soon oh oh oh

Chorus, (Oooahh oh oh), Chorus, (Oh yeah)

Am        Dm                         E        Am 
Well the world will turn, if you’re ready or not      (Oah Ohhh)
Am       Dm                         E        Am
Yes the world will turn if you’re ready or not!

As for me, there shouldn't be any A. Instead of it there shold be everywhere Am. Maybe I'm wrong, but it sounds much better with Am.

Great tab, though, thanks!

Sorry! Nice try, but unfortunately, this is incorrect in some parts. The official sheet music for the verse has Am, Em7, C, Asus4 for the first line:

Am Em7 C Asus4
(Say you to me you're a bird with an eye for anything shiny).

And A5 for the intro.

Following on, I'm assuming the rest of the tab is incorrect, or along the same lines as the chords above. Sorry!
