How To Play

Capo:3rd fret

INTRO
G Em C G
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                         G
Hold onto what you've got
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                         G   C D
Hold onto what you've got
 
 
VERSE 1
    G                      Em
The world is changing in a biased way
        C                       G
And the sword cuts both ways at last
      G                    Em
Do we live in fear? Is our conscience clear?
     C                            G
With so many questions I've asked
 
 
PRE CHORUS
          Em                         C
Keep your loved ones safe, keep your family close
          Em                     D
Keep your children by your side
 
 
CHORUS
    G        Em
And hold on, hold on
C                          G
Hold onto what you've got
G                    Em
Sisters and mothers, fathers and brothers
C                         G   C D
Hold onto what you've got
 
 
VERSE 2
  G                        Em
A change is gonna come, Sam Cooke once sang
    C                            G
Oh, lay down that burden of hate
     G                      Em
With cities divided and the homeless crying
 C                       G
Equality for all someday
 
 
PRE CHORUS
          Em                         C
Keep your loved ones safe, keep your family close
          Em                     D
Keep your children by your side
 
 
CHORUS
    G        Em
And hold on, hold on
C                          G
Hold onto what you've got
G                    Em
Sisters and mothers, fathers and brothers
C                         G
Hold onto what you've got
 
 
BRIDGE
         C
With the courtesy of kindness
        G
And the currency of love
        C                         Em
May the words of John Lewis never fade (Never fade)
       C
To the bigots and the racists
    G
And those vagabonds
         D
Feel the spotlight of justice someday, oh-oh
 
 
OUTRO
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                        G
Hold onto what you've got (Listen)
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                         G
Hold onto what you've got
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                          G
Hold onto what you've got (Sing it for me)
G        Em
Hold on, hold on
C                     G
Hold onto what you've got
