        Hold On Loosely - 38 Special
        [charted by Dave Hickernell]
        [submitted by Rick Schofield (rds@mv.mv.com)]
        ---------------

INTRO: ||: E . . . | E/Eb . . . | D . . . | D/Db . . . :||

        E              E/Eb       D                  D/Db
     1) You see it all around you - good lovin' gone bad.
        E                E/Eb                  D            D/Db
        And usually it's too late when you realize what you had.
        C                                 D
        And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago, who told
me,
        E             E/Eb    D              A         (D/Db-D-E)
        "Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go.
        E                E/Eb    D                     A
        If you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control.
        F#m             B
        Your baby needs someone to believe in
        F#m                A
        And a whole lot of space to breathe in."

        E            E/Eb           D            D/Db
     2) It's so damn easy when your feelings are such
        E         E/Eb     D                D/Db
        To overprotect her, to love her too much.
        C                                 D
        And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago, who told
me,
        E             E/Eb    D              A         (D/Db-D-E)
        "Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go.
        E                E/Eb        D                     A
        If you cling too tight, babe, you're gonna lose control.
        F#m             B
        Your baby needs someone to believe in
        F#m                A
        And a whole lot of space to breathe in."

        | . . | G     D     G     D | G     D       G    D    |
     B)                               Don't let her slip a-
              | D     A     D     A | D     A     D     A     |
                way,                              sentimental
              | G     D     G     D | G     D        G     D  |
                fool,                 Don't let your heart get
              | D     A     D   A-A#| B     .      .      .   |
                in    her   way.

        E              E/Eb       D                  D/Db
     3) You see it all around you - good lovin' gone bad.
        E                E/Eb                  D            D/Db
        And usually it's too late when you realize what you had.
        E          E/Eb    D              A         (D/Db-D-E)
        So Hold On Loosely, but don't let go.
        E                E/Eb       D                     A
        If you cling too tight babe, you're gonna lose control.
        F#m             B
        Your baby needs someone to believe in
        F#m                A
        And a whole lot of space to breathe in.

OUTTRO: E          E/Eb    D              A         (D/Db-D-E)
        So Hold On Loosely, but don't let go.
        E                E/Eb       D                     [stop]
        If you cling too tight babe, you're gonna lose it --

all chords are correct except in chorus dont go from D to A go D to D/Db sounds better imo

Use the following chart, and the chords are pretty close. (some of the tabs here are more accurate, though)

E = x799xx (actually E5)
E/Eb = x699xx (Badd4/D#)
D = x577xx (D5)
D/Db = x477xx (Aadd4/C#)

If you tried to play "D/Db" as x4x232 or something like that, then yeah, it wouldn't sound right at all.
