1Verse:
E1 A2 2They hung a sign up in our town
B3 E4 3"If you live it up, you won't live it down"
E5 A6 4So she left Monte Rio, son
B7 E8 E9 5Just like a bullet leaves a gun
A10 B11 6With her charcoal eyes and Monroe hips
E12 A13 7She went and took that California trip
F#m14 B15 8Well the moon was gold, her hair like wind
F#m16 B17 B18 9She said don't look back, just come on Jim
10
11Chorus:
E19 B20 E21 A22 12Oh you got to hold on, hold on, --you gotta hold on
E23 B24 E25 13Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you gotta hold on
14
15Verse:
E26 A27 16Well he gave her a dime store watch
B28 E29 17And a ring made from a spoon
E30 A31 18Everyone's looking for someone to blame
B32 E33 E34 19If you share my bed you share my name
A35 B36 20Well go ahead and call the cops
E37 A38 A39 21You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops
F#m40 B41 22--She said baby I still love you
F#m42 B43 B44 23Sometimes there's nothing left to do
24
25Chorus:
E45 B46 E47 A48 26Oh you got to hold on, hold on, --you gotta hold on
E49 B50 E51 27Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you gotta hold on
28
29Verse:
E52 A53 30Well god bless your crooked little heart
B54 E55 31St. Louis got the best of me
E56 A57 32I miss your broken china voice
B58 E59 E60 33How I wish you were still here with me
A61 B62 34Well you build it up and wreck it down
E63 A64 A65 35Then you burn your mansion to the ground
F#m66 B67 36When there's nothing to keep you here
F#m68 B69 B70 37When you're falling behind in this big blue world
38
39Chorus:
E71 B72 E73 A74 40Oh you got to hold on, hold on, baby gotta hold on
E75 B76 E77 E78 41Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you gotta hold on
42
43Verse:
E79 A80 44Down by the Riverside Motel
B81 E82 45It's 10 below and falling
E83 A84 46By a 99 cent store
B85 E86 E87 47She closed her eyes and started swaying
A88 B89 48But it' so hard to dance that way
E90 A91 A92 49When it's cold and there's no music
F#m93 B94 50Well your old home town's so far away
F#m95 B96 B97 51But inside your head there's a record that's playing
52
53Chorus:
E98 B99 E100 A101 A102 song called Hold On, hold on, baby gotta hold on E103 B104 E105 54Take my hand, I'm standing right here, you gotta hold on
