[Intro]
G D G C G D G C G D G C D G

[Verse]
D                          C      G
Grampa buried dignity when he got old
                                D          G
Like a killer and child now for seven long years
       D                        C        G
But he wets his own britches if he’s not told
                                         D              G
But he used to build bridges, they would light em up at night

[Instrumental]
G D G C G D G C G D G C D G

[Verse]
D                               C        G
Grampa built bridges, they were delicate webs
                               D       G
With ridges and valleys joined hand in hand
     D                      C           G
When Grandma went empty the last of her days
                                 D       G
He told her she’d come and could go with grace

[Chorus]
D        G       C
Hold on, hold my hand
           C/B      D/A
I know you know the way
             C                  G
With eagle’s wings and songs to sing
      D                   G
We’ll lead you across the Bay

[Instrumental]
G D G C G D G C G D G C D G

[Verse]
D                         C         G
Grampa built bridges with crestview spires
                         D        G
With braids of wires and wings of steel
       D                       C        G
Til he walked on over with his heels on fire
                                  D       G
And the bridge burned back with a captive haze

[Chorus]
D        G       C
Hold on, hold my hand
           C/B      D/A
I know you know the way
             C                  G
With eagle’s wings and songs to sing
      D                   G
We’ll lead you across the Bay

[Instrumental]
G D G C G D G C G D G C D G

[Verse]
D                         C             G
Grampa built bridges like mountains and birds
                                            D         G
But now he’s curled at the bottom where the sun can’t warm
              D                            C            G
Cause there’s nothing in our culture about mountains no more
                                  D          G
And there’s no more stories about calling up storms
D                                C          G
No there’s no more stories about sitting up straight
                            D       G
Proud and with purpose, our time to take
        D                         C         G
Til the last breath cools for the clouds to make
                      D        G
And rain back down to fill the bay

[Chorus]
D        G       C
Hold on, hold my hand
           C/B      D/A
I know you know the way
             C                  G
With eagle’s wings and songs to sing
      D                   G
We’ll lead you across the Bay

[Outro]
G D G C G D G
           C              G             D            G
No there’s nothing in our culture about mountains no more
            C       D             G
And there’s no more stories about bridges
