I originally figured this out way up the neck, but it
is played near the nut. You can substitue the alternate
chords and what you get will sound pretty close to
the recorded version.

Verse: Bsus2 alternate with E

[Bsus2]With a little [E]love
and some tenderness
we'll walk upon the water
we'll rise above the mist

With a little peace
And some harmony
we'll take the world together
We'll take them by the hand

F#             E        B    <-------  (Fixed)

Cause, I got a hand for you
Cause, I wanna run with you

Yesterday, I saw you standing there
Your head was heavy, your eyes were red
No comb had touched your hair
I said "Get up,
And let me see you smile
We'll take a walk together
walk the road a while"

[F#]Cause, I got a [E]hand for [B]you  -  I got a hand for you
[F#]I wanna run [E]with [B]you         -  won't you let me run with you
[B]hold [E]my [F#]hand                 -  want you to hold my hand
hold my hand - I'll take you to a place where you can be
hold my hand - anything you wanna be cause
[E]I wanna love you the best that, the best that I can

See I was wasted
and I was wasting time
Till I thought about your problems
I thought about your crimes
Then I stood up,
and I screamed aloud
"Don't wanna be part of your problems
Don't wanna be part of your crowd"


Cause, I gotta hand for you - I got a hand for you
I wanna run with you - won't you let me run with you
hold my hand - want you to hold my hand
hold my hand - I will take you to the promised land
hold my hand - Maybe we can't change the world but,
I wanna love you, the best that, the best that I can

(solo, ramble)

hold my hand - want you to hold my hand
hold my hand - I'll take you to a place where you can be
hold my hand - anything you wanna be cause
I hi hi, no lo lo, oh ho

hold my hand - want you to hold my hand
hold my hand - I will take you to the promised land
hold my hand - Maybe we can't change the world but,
I wanna love you, the best that, the best that I can
