       PUT YOUR HAND IN MINE    Tracy Byrd

Eb               Bb          Ab
He sat upon the bed and he watched me packing  
(Ab)                           Eb  Bb
He already knew I was leaving 
Eb                                     Ab
I took what I needed but I sure left a     lot still hanging
     Eb                                Bb  
I figured I'd get it come the weekend     He said
  Ab                        Bb                         Eb            
"Daddy, when you get there are you gonna have a refrigerator."
Ab                     Bb               Eb 
I kind of laughed and said, "I guess I will."
         Ab                         Bb                     Eb
Then he handed me a tracing of his hand  On the back of a piece of paper
       Ab                        Bb
And a magnet and my heart stood still when he said

CHORUS:
          Eb           Ab                Bb  
Put your hand in mine And I'll be there anytime
Ab                           Cm 
When it feels like you could use a friend
(Cm)                      Bb
I'll be there to lift you up again
Ab                           Bb                         Eb
You can reach out to me any-time  And put your hand in mine


Eb                    Bb                    Ab 
But I drove past the Harton Baptist church
(Ab)                                      Bb
Though it wasn't really on the way to my hotel
Eb                                      Ab
Beside me on the seat I was looking at five small fingers
(Ab)                     Bb                  Ab           Bb
When I heard the chapel bell and it took me back another life ago
          Eb              Ab                             Eb
When our hearts were open Oh back when we could still a-gree
Ab               Bb               Eb             
Back when the future that we had was full of hope and 
Ab                           Bb
  You and I got down on our knees and said

Go to Chorus

Ab               Cm             Ab
I couldn't even stay away one night
Db                              Cm
I noticed that you left on the light
Eb                             Cm 
And I've only got one thing to say
(Cm)               Ab                    Ab       
If you're not too tire and it's not too late   go to ending

ENDING:
          Eb           Ab                Bb  
Put your hand in mine And I'll be there anytime
  Ab                                     Bb                        Eb
Would you reach out to me just one more time And put your hand in mine
  Ab                                     Bb                         Eb
Would you reach out to me just one more time  And put your hand in mine
