Hold On  Shawn Colvin

[C] [Csus2] [C] [Csus2] [C]  
[Verse 1] 
[C]They hung a sign up [F]in our town
"If you [G]live it up, you won't [C]live it down"
[C]So she left Monte [F]Rio, son[C]
Just like a bullet [C]leaves a gun
With her [F]charcoal eyes and [G]Monroe hips
She went and [C]took that Cali[F]fornia trip
Well [Dm]the moon was gold, he[G]r hair like wind
She said [Dm]don't look back, just [G]come on Jim
[G]Oh____ [C]you got to h[F]old on, [G]hold on[C],__ Babe you gotta [G]hold on
[C]Take my hand, I'm [G]standing right here, you gotta [C]hold on[C] [C] [C]
[Verse 2] 
[C]And he gave her a d[F]ime store watch
[G]And a ring made [C]from a spoon
[C] Everyone's looking for s[F]omeone to blame
If you [G]share my bed you [C]share my name[C]
[F]So go ahead and call the [G]cops
You don't [C]meet nice girls in [F]coffee shops[F]
Oh and She said baby I [G]still love you
Some[Dm]times there's nothing [G]left to do
Oh but you got to [C]hold on, [G]hold on[C], babe you gotta [F]hold on
[C]Take my hand, I'm[G] standing right here, you gotta [C]hold on[C]
[Verse 3] 
[Cm]And god bless your [F]crooked little heart
[C] St. Louis got the best of me
[C]I miss your broken c[F]hina voice[G]
[C]How I wish you were still [C]here with me
Well you [F]build it up and [G]wreck it down
Then you [C]burn your mansion [F]to the ground[F]
Oh there's nothing left to [G]keep you here
But when you're [Dm]falling behind in t[G]his big blue world Oh Ohh oh
you got to [C]hold on, [G]hold on[C], babe gotta [F]hold on
[C]Take my hand, I'm [G]standing right here, you gotta [C]hold on[C] [C] [C] [C]
[Verse 4] 
[C]Down by the Riverside[F] Motel
[G]Well It's 10 below [Am]and [C]falling
[C]and by a 9[F]9 cent store (soft strum G)
[C]She [G]closed her [Dm]eyes and [C]started swaying[C]
B[F]ut it' so hard to [G]dance that way
When [C]it's cold and there's [F]no music[F]
a[Dm]nd When your old home town's so [G]far away
But in[Dm]side your head there's a [G]record playin'
A song called [C]Hold On, [G]hold on,[C] baby gotta [F]hold on
[C]Take my hand, I'm [G]standing right here, you gotta [C]hold on
[G]Hold O[C]n, babe got[F]ta hold on
[C]Take my hand, I'm [G]standing right here, you gotta [C]hold on [C]
