    A MAN HOLDING ON     Ty Herndon


D                             A        D       
Two young lovers with their bodies on fire
D                    Bm         A   
Aching to swim that river of desire
            G                   F#m             Bm
Leaving innocence there on the bank by their clothes
   D                    A            D 
A man holding on to a woman letting go
D                                    A            D
There's a man with a bottle on the other side of town
D                         Bm             A                   
Swimming with the memory that he can't drown
G                               F#m          Bm
Lord it ain't sunk in that she ain't coming home
      D                    A            D
Oh a man holding on to a woman letting go.
CHORUS:
     F#m                     Em               D
His heart is telling him to hang on for dear life
       Bm                             G                  A
Cause deep down he know she's letting go for good this time

D                              A                 D
There's a daddy walking his daughter down the aisle
D                        Bm         A     
Fighting back tears and forcing  a smile
       G                   F#m        Bm 
Over twenty-two years he watched her grow
   D                    A            D
A man holding on to a woman letting go

lead
D                               A         D
In Hill Valley home there's a feeble old man
D                          Bm          A 
And he's holding on to a fragile old hand
          G                    F#m      Bm
And the angels are coming to carry her home
            D                     A          D 
Now he's a man holding on to a woman letting go
chorus, key change
E                             B        E
Two young lovers with their bodies on fire
 E                   C#m       B   
Aching to swim that river of desire
           A                   G#m            C#m 
Leaving innocence there on the bank by their clothes
   E                    B            E   
A man holding on to a woman letting go
