HOLD THE LINE  (Toto)


[Verse]

Am7             Bm7          Em7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that you hold me,
Am7             Bm7             Em7   Bm7 Bbm7
it's not in the way you say you care
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7       D7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way you've been treating my friends
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7        D7     Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that you stayed till the end
Am7             Bm7                 Cmaj7                           D7
It's not in the way you look or the things that you say that you'll do


[Chorus] (2x):

         Em    G/H  C6/G  D
Hold the line,
           Dsus D    Em   G/H  C6/G  D  Dsus  D
love isn't always on time,             oh oh oh


[Verse]

Am7             Bm7          Em7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the words that you told me, girl
Am7             Bm7             Em7   Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way you say you're mine, ooh
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7       D7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that you came back to me
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7        D7     Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that your love set me free
Am7             Bm7                 Cmaj7                           D7
It's not in the way you look or the things that you say that you'll do


[Chorus]  

         Em    G/H  C6/G  D
Hold the line,
           Dsus D    Em   G/H  C6/G  D  Dsus  D
love isn't always on time,             oh oh oh


(Instrumental break - sorry, no chords for that so far)


Am7             Bm7          Em7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the words that you told me
Am7             Bm7             Em7   Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way you say you're mine, ooh
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7       D7      Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that you came back to me
Am7             Bm7             Cmaj7        D7     Bm7 Bbm7
It's not in the way that your love set me free
Am7             Bm7                 Cmaj7                           D7
It's not in the way you look or the things that you say that you'll do


[Chorus] love isn't always on time

Hold the line, love isn't always on time -
love isn't always, love isn't always on time
Hold the line, love isn't always on time, love isn't always on time
Love isn't always on time, love isn't always on time, oh oh oh


#1: The rhythm is a straight 6/8 throughout, but sometimes they play it
    like a 3/4. The accents are as follows (somehow. Listen to the song
    and you'll figure it out):


[Verse]

ONE two three FOUR five six  [3x and then:]  ONE two THREE four FIVE six
|Am7 . . . . . |Bm7 . . . . . |Em7 . . . . .|Em7 . Bm7 . Bbm7 .|


[Chorus]

|Em . . . . . |G/H . C6/G . . .|D . . . . . |Dsus . . D . . |

#2: The voicing is for playing it with a single (acoustic) guitar. If you
have a band, however, you don't have to play all the notes yourself ;-)

I like it. It's just down a step and jazzy open chords instead of power chords. Not sure what a G/H is though
