I Hold On

Album: Riser (2013)
Charted: 40
  • It's just an old beat up truck,
    Some say that I should trade up
    Now that I got some jangle in my pocket
    But what they don't understand
    Is it's the miles that make a man
    I wouldn't trade that thing in for a rocket
    What they don't know is my dad and me
    We drove her out to Tennessee
    And she's still here and now he's gone
    So I hold on

    It's just an old beat up box,
    Its rusty strings across the top
    It probably don't look like much to you
    But these dents and scratches in the wood,
    Yeah, that's what makes it sound so good
    To me it's better than brand new
    You see this here flat top guitar,
    Has had my back in a million bars
    Singing every country song
    So I hold on


    To the things I believe in
    My faith, your love, our freedom
    To the things I can count on
    To keep me going strong
    Yeah, I hold on, I hold on

    Like the stripes to the flag,
    Like a boy to his dad
    I can't change who I am, right or wrong
    So I hold on

    Yeah, baby, looking at you right now,
    There ain't never been no doubt
    Without you I'd be nothing
    So if you ever worry about
    Me walking out
    Yeah, let me tell you something
    I hold on
    I hold on
    Can you hear me, baby?
    I hold on
    Yea,
    I hold on

    To the things I believe in
    My faith, your love, our freedom
    To the things I can count on
    To keep me going strong

    To the things I believe in
    My faith, your love, our freedom
    To the things I can count on
    To keep me going strong
    Yeah, I hold on
    I hold on
    I hold on and on and on and on and on
    I hold on and on and on and on and on Writer/s: BRETT JAMES, DIERKS BENTLEY
