Live, Dierks plays it a step down, making the Am a Bm, the F a G, and the C
a D. If you want to play it that way, you can just transpose it. I like to
play it in regular tuning though. Just personal preference. Sounds exactly
the same.

Standard tuning
No Capo

[Intro] Am F C x2


[Verse 1]

    Am
Its just an old beat up truck 
      F
Some say that I should trade up
     C
Now that I got some jangle in my pocket
    Am
But what they dont understand 
    F
Is its the miles that make a man
           C
I wouldnt trade that thing in for a rocket
     Am
What they dont know is my dad and me
     F
We drove her out to Tennessee
     C                           G
And shes still here and now hes gone
   Dm  F   C
So I hold on
 
     Am
Its just an old beat up box
     F
Its rusty strings across the top
     C
It probly dont look like much to you
           Am
But these dents and scratches in the wood
      F
Yea thats what makes it sound so good
C
To me its better than brand new
    Am
Yea see this here flat top guitar
     F
Has had my back in a million bars
C                      G
Singing every country song
   Dm  F   C
So I hold on
 

[Chorus]

        F          C
To the things, I believe in
     G                    Am
My faith, your love, our freedom
         F
To the things I can count on
    C              G
To keep me going strong
             Am  F  C
Yeah I hold on
       Am  F  C
I hold on
            F
Like the stripes to the flag
        C          G
Like a boy to his dad
         F           C             G
I cant change who I am, right or wrong
           Am  F  C x2
So I hold on
 

[Verse 2]

 Am
Baby lookin at you right now
  F
There aint never been no doubt
C
Without you Id be nothing
   Am                      F
So if you ever worry about, me walkin out
C
Yeah let me tell you something
Am   F  C
I hold on 
Am  F   C
I hold on

Can you hear me baby
Am  F   C
I hold on
Am  F  C
I hold on


[Chorus]

         F        C
To the things, I believe in
    G                      Am
My faith, your love, our freedom
         F
To the things I can count on
    C              G
To keep me going strong 
        F         C      
To the things, I believe in
    G                       Am
My faith, your love, our freedom
         F
To the things I can count on
    C               G
To keep me going strong
             Am F C
Yea I hold on
         Am F C 
I hold on
