Jimmy Nail – Cant Hold On chords

Jimmy Nail - Can't Hold On

*Notes* - I like to use Cadd9 (x32033) for the C chords
- In the chorus I think Am7 (x02013) sounds better than Am
  And Em7 (022033) sounds better than Em
- I play Dsus4/F# as 200233
And G/B as x20033- After the first chorus I have just put the lyrics, the chords stay the
same for each section, with a couple of slight changes which I have included. Intro and Verses |G D|C | (repeat)
G D CIt was a kind of town, edge of the universe
Nothin' happened there to ever make the news Lived a little boy and a girl next door Had opinions and independent views
Am G DThey dreamed of nights and big city lights
Am G DIt helped to kill each dreary day
Am G CAnd all the things that gettin' out would bring
Am G DIf only they could get away
DHe say
G Dsus4/F# Em(7)I can't hold on
C G/B Am(7)'cause I'm fee....lin' strong
G Dsus4/F# Em(7)but there's so ma.....ny things
D C I'm not knowing
but the city light didn't burn so bright and the light of day was never warm and the little boy got into one more fight and the girl next door said "I miss my home"
Dsus4 Dhe said "believe in me"
Dsus4 Dshe said "I don't know"
Dsus4 Dhe said "can't you see?"
I can't hold on 'cause I'm feelin' strong and there's so many things I'm not knowing and I can't hang round this one-horse town when my soul's tied down, I'm for going
G Cso the little boy became a broken man
with a broken face and broken dreams and the girl next door disappeared one day and in her place was a woman-child I can't hold on, I'm not feeling strong there's so many things that hurt me now and I can't step down from this big cold town where my soul's tied down Repeat Chorus Chords I can't hold on 'cause I'm feelin' strong and there's so many things I'm not knowing
