38 Special - Hold On Loosely




Intro - E - E/Eb - D - D/Db



(verse 1)
E              E/Eb       D                  D/Db
You see it all around you,  good lovin' gone bad.
E                E/Eb                  D            D/Db
And usually it's too late when you, realize what you had.
C                                 D
And my mind goes back to a girl I left, some years ago, who told me,


(chorus)
E             E/Eb    D              A -D/Db-D-E
Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go.
E                E/Eb    D                     A
If you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control,
F#m             B
Your baby needs someone to believe in,
F#m                A
And a whole lot of space to breathe in,


(verse 2)
E       E/Eb           D            D/Db
So damn easy, when your feelings are such,
E         E/Eb     D                D/Db
To overprotect her, to love her too much,
C                                 D
And my mind goes back to a girl I had, some years ago, who told me,


(chorus)
E             E/Eb   D              A -D/Db-D-E
Just Hold On Loosely, but don't let go,
E                E/Eb    D                     A
If you cling too tightly, you're gonna lose control,
F#m             B
Your baby needs someone to believe in,
F#m                A                  G-D - G-D
And a whole lot of space to breathe in,


(bridge)
G-D - G-D - G- D - G-D - D-A   D-A
     Don't let her slip,   away
D-A - D-A- G-D - G - D
sentimental  fool,
D-G - D-G - D
Don't let your heart get,
D-A - D -A-A# - B
  in  her  way,


(verse 3)
E              E/Eb       D                  D/Db
You see it all around you - good lovin' gone bad,
E                E/Eb                  D            D/Db
And usually it's too late when you realize what you had,
E          E/Eb    D              A -D/Db-D-E
So Hold On Loosely, but don't let go,
E                E/Eb       D                     A
If you cling too tight babe, you're gonna lose control,
F#m             B
Your baby needs someone to believe in,
F#m                A
And a whole lot of space to breathe in,

E          E/Eb    D              A -D/Db-D-E
So Hold On Loosely, but don't let go,
E                E/Eb       D                     
If you cling too tight babe, you're gonna lose it,
                      A
You're gonna, lose control,

Gotta give this a "10".

Ken, you might put chord shapes with this song since a couple of them aren't common, especially for beginners.
