They hung a sign up in our town
If you live it up you won't live it down
So she left Monte Rio's sun
Just like a bullet that leaves a gun

Charcoal eyes and Monroe hips
She went and took that California trip
The moon was cold, her hair like wind
She said, "Don't look back just come on Jim."

Oh you gotta hold on, hold on
You gotta hold on. Take my hand
Standing right here right, you gotta hold on

Well he gave her a dyed store watch
And a ring made from a spoon
Everyone's looking for someone to blame
When you share my bed you share my name

So go ahead and call the cops
You don't meet nice girls in coffee shops
She said, "Baby I still love you"
Sometimes there's nothing left to do

Oh you gotta hold on, hold on
You gotta hold on. Take my hand
Standing right here, you gotta hold on

God bless your crooked little heart
Saint Louis got the best of me
I miss your broken china voice
How I wish you were still here with me

Oh you build it up you wreck it down
And you burn you mansion to the ground
When there's nothing left to keep you here
When you're falling behind in this big blue world

Oh you gotta hold on, hold on
You gotta hold on take my hand
Stay right here, gotta hold on

Down by the riverside motel
It's ten below and falling
By the 99 cents store
She closed her eyes and started swaying

But it's so hard to dance that way
When it's cold and there's no music
And your old hometown it's far away
But inside your head the record that's playing
A song called hold on, hold on

You gotta hold on
Take my hand, standing right here you gotta hold on
You've got to hold on, hold on, you gotta hold on
Take my hand, standing right here you gotta hold on
You've got to hold on, hold on, you gotta hold on
Take my hand, I'm standing right here you gotta hold on
