Song: Hold My Life
Artist: The Replacements
Album: Tim (1985)(Track 1)
Tabbed By: Brandon Karcic

First tab. Pretty simple, awesome song. Thinking of playing it for my Berklee 
audition, if I don't do "Left of the Dial". Be sure to pay attention to the song 
for rhythms, especially on the verses.

Razzle, dazzle, drazzle, drone, time for this one to come home

Razzle, dazzle, drazzle, die, time for this one to come alive

until I'm ready to use it
D    Cm  Bm    (riff, see below) 
Hold my life because I just might lose it
