Don't Let Go

Lyrics: Jesse Stone
Music: Jesse Stone

Hear that whistle, it's six o'clock
(Don't let go, don't let go)
Come on baby, it's time to rock
(Don't let go, don't let go)
I'm so happy to have you here
(Don't let go, don't let go)
Keeps me grinnin' from ear to ear
(Don't let go, don't let go)

Chorus
Ooh wee
This feeling's killing me
Oh shucks
I wouldn't stop for a million bucks
I love you so
Just hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)
Hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)

Thunder, lightning, wind and rain
Love is humming inside my brain
There's one thing baby, that keeps me crying
You been keeping your lips from mine

[chorus]

Hound dog barking upside the hill
Love is dragging him through the mill
If it wasn't for having you
I'd be barking and a-hollering too

[chorus]
Hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)
Hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)
[etc]

Someday baby, I'll get you yet
I'll be hollering, soaking wet
One thing baby, I'll never stand
Your lips kissing some other man

[chorus]
Hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)
Hold me tight and don't let go
(Don't let go, don't let go)
[etc]
