lyrics

I know life ain't easy and I know love is hard
There's always somebody tryin' to tear us apart
But if you are steadfast and patient and true
I probably might stay with you

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets rough
You gotta get rough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me

I know that you love me in spite of my ways
I drink and I gamble, I go missing for days
There's always somebody else turning my head
But it’s cheaper to stay here instead

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets rough
You gotta get rough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me

I know I'm not a good man
But I'm doin' the best that I can
I know that I don't treat you right
But if you want me to change
Maybe someday I might

I know you're a woman of tolerant nerve
You're better to me than I prob'ly deserve
If you ever leave me I'll sing a sad song
Until somebody new comes along

Hold on to me, hold on to me
When the goin' gets tough
Come on and get tough with me
Hold on to me, hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me
When I start runnin'
Hold on to me
