One last Rosanne post...
This is from 'Rhythm and Romance.'

Hold On
Rosanne Cash
Key of D  (on record it's Eb I think.  Saw her do the song on ACL in D.)

intro     D(E)  Em7  D(E)  Em7  D  A(D)  G(D)  A(D)       (repeat)

             D(E)        Em7    D(E)       Em7             D
verse1    If you want to keep a woman like me, you got to hold on
             D(E)        Em7     D(E)        Em7        D
          If you want to see how good it can be, baby, hold on
          F#m                       Bm
          All my friends think that I'm a fool
          F#m                          A
          I tell you something honey, they're not that cool
             D(E)        Em7    D(E)       Em7             D
          If you want to keep a woman like me, you better hold on

verse2    If you want to know how far we can go, you got to hold on
          If you take it slow then I got something to show you
          Baby, hold on
          All those girls with their empty heads
          Can't fill 'em up with the lies they've been fed
          If you want to know how far I can go, you got to hold on

turnaround  like intro

          A                           Em
bridge    She'll give you reasons for her kind
          Bm                        D             A
          You might believe it, but I'm not that blind

verse3    If you think you need a woman like me, you better hold on
          If you want to find what I've got on my mind, baby, hold on
          All this small talk that keeps us apart
          Is only hiding how we feel in our hearts
          If you want to keep a woman like me, baby, hold on

outro     like intro

           E A D G B E
D(E)       0 7 7 7 7 7
Em7        0 7 9 7 8 7
D          x x 0 7 7 0 (in the intro and verses)
A(D)       x x 0 6 5 0
G(D)       x x 0 4 3 0

F#m        2 4 4 2 2 2
Bm         x 2 4 4 3 2
A          x 0 2 2 2 0

Em         0 2 2 0 0 0
D          x x 0 2 3 2   (in the bridge)

Most of this is correct except the parts where the tabber puts that confusing D(E) Em7 chords (1st& 2nd line)s. That first line should start with the Em7 chord then change to D in the word "hold". Much simpler (and I would say accurate)
