V1

You’ve been beside me all these years
Through summer storms and cold winter nights
We’ve seen some laughter and some tears
But we always more than made up for the fights

I know they told me that you can’t hear me now
I know they told me but I’m gonna say it anyhow
I’m gonna say it anyhow

CHORUS

When everything is said and done
And every battle’s fought and won
And every bitter tear has fallen
I’ll still hold on

I know you’ve got to leave here now
You know I’ll get along somehow
And even though my heart is breaking
I’ll still hold on, I’ll still hold on to you

V2

You came out west looking for adventure
You never dreamed you might wind up with a wife
I never will forget the day I met you
And how that felt and how you changed my life

CHORUS

When everything is said and done
And every battle’s fought and won
And every bitter tear has fallen
I’ll still hold on

I know you’ve got to leave here now
You know I’ll get along somehow
And even though my heart is breaking
I’ll still hold on, I’ll still hold on to you

V3

Are you dreaming ‘bout your backyard back in Belmont?
You always were the first one in the pool
Swimming in that sweet New England sunshine
They tell me now there’s nothing they can do…

CHORUS

When everything is said and done
And every battle’s fought and won
And every bitter tear has fallen
I’ll still hold on

I know you’ve got to leave here now
You know I’ll get along somehow
And even though my heart is breaking
I’ll still hold on…
I’ll still hold on…
I’ll still hold on to you
