Hold on to Me, Babe


C F C As my achin' head keeps beggin' for a sleep that will not come, G I rise and walk the morning streets again. C F C I keep wonderin' how you're doin', and I wonder where you are, G C And I know I'll be alright, but I don't know when. C F C G Hold on to me, babe, wherever you may be; C F C G C Hold on to me, babe, I'm with you always.

There was something locked inside you like a secret burnin' pain,
In a prison where you would not let me go.
I was sure we'd find the answer, till I woke and found you gone,
Now just what it was I guess I'll never know.

Hold on to me, babe, wherever you may be;
Hold on to me, babe, I'm with you always.

I keep hangin' on to something though I don't know what it is,
But at least I know the sound of my own name.
And I work as hard as ever, and I see the same old friends,
But there's something deep inside, that ain't the same.

Hold on to me, babe, wherever you may be;
Hold on to me, babe, I'm with you always.

As my achin' head keeps beggin' for a sleep that will not come,
I rise and walk the morning streets again.
I keep wonderin' how you're doin', and I wonder where you are,
And I know I'll be alright, but I don't know when.

Hold on to me, babe, wherever you may be;
Hold on to me, babe, I'm with you always.

(Words and music by Tom Paxton, 1964)
