Hold What You've Got

	  		* 
 
(Chorus) 
 
(D) 
Hold what you got, I'm a coming home baby 
(G) 
Hold what you got, and I don't mean maybe 
(D)                                         (A) 
I've been thinking about you, and I'm on my way. 
(D) 
Don't sell the house, don't wreck the car 
(G) 
Stay there honey right where you are 
(D)                    (A)                 (D) 
If you hold what you got, I'm coming home to stay. 
 
Well, in my mind, I can see that?s a mighty good sign 
that  I need 
so that?s why, I can't wait to get back home. 
So squeeze yourself real good and tight, and I'll be 
home before daylight 
If you hold what you got, I'm a coming home to stay. 
 
(Chorus) 
 
Well when I get back, honey I ain't leaving 
I been too lonely, little to much grieving 
when I get back, honey this time I'm gonna stay. 
Well we won't fuss and we won't fight 
and this time things is going to be alright 
if you hold what you got, I'm a coming home to stay. 
 
(Chorus)

Hold What You've Got 
 
 
Traditional, arranged by String Cheese Incident 
from "Carnival '99" 
transcribed by {Kevin Hart, [email protected] 
 
It's in the key of F, it's capoed at the fifth fret, and it's played 
as if it's in the key of C. This tab shows chords as if the capo is the 
nut. It uses the traditional bluegrass alternating bass notes while 
strumming.
