Hold On
Waits, Brennan
Transcribed by Reuben Gann (reubengann@usa.net)
Key of D

[D]They hung a sign up in [G]our town
"If you [A]live it up, you won't [D]live it down"
So, she left Monte [G]Rio, son
Just [A]like a bullet [D]leaves a gun
With [G]charcoal eyes and [A]Monroe hips
She went and [D]took that Cali[G]fornia trip
Well, the [Em]moon was gold, her h[A]air like wind
She said [Em]don't look back just c[A]ome on Jim

[A]Oh you got to [D]hold on, [A]hold on  [D]
You got to [G]hold on
[D]Take my hand, I'm [A]standing right here
You gotta [D]hold on

Well, he gave her a dimestore watch
And a ring made from a spoon
Everyone is looking for someone to blame
But you share my bed, you share my name
Well, go ahead and call the cops
You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops
She said baby, I still love you
Sometimes there's nothin left to do

Oh you got to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you got to
Just hold on.

Well, God bless your crooked little heart St. Louis got the best of me
I miss your broken-china voice
How I wish you were still here with me

Well, you build it up, you wreck it down
You burn your mansion to the ground
When there's nothing left to keep you here, when
You're falling behind in this
Big blue world

Oh you go to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here
You got to hold on

Down by the Riverside motel,
It's 10 below and falling
By a 99 cent store she closed her eyes
And started swaying
But it's so hard to dance that way
When it's cold and there's no music
Well your old hometown is so far away
But, inside your head there's a record
That's playing, a song called

Hold on, hold on
You really got to hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here
And just hold on.

Needs the next 3 choruses.verses and outro. It's not wrong just cannot sing and play the entire song.
