     Capo 1st fret

     Intro: G  C/G  G  C/G
       G               C/G
     Today I got your letter
         G                          C/G
     The one you said I never would read
             G                                   C/G
     And it seems you've been through some weather
             Am7               G
     And you feel like surrendering
       G                   C/G
     Before you commit the crime
       G                     C/G
     Before you abandon your dreams
            G             C/G
     Take a look how the hardest times
          Am7               G
     Will drive you to your knees
              Am7                 G
     The very place you needed to be 

     G           *Csus C      G
     Where you can hold, hold on and let the wind blow 
   *Csus  C      G
     Hold,  Hold on
            G                 C/G
     Well I know it sounds to simple
           G                   C/G
     But I beg you don't be confused
          G                    C/G
     Many times it's in the simple
             Am7                       G
     That we find the home of the truth
             Am7                       G
     That we find the home of the truth, and the truth will say to 

   *Csus  C      G
     Hold,  Hold on and let the wind blow 
   *Csus  C      G
     Hold,  Hold on    
     G
     When the world says let go
   *Csus  C      G
     Hold,  Hold on
     G                            *Csus  C      G
     When you feel like letting go, Hold,  Hold on

 C                 C/G            D2
     And when your hand starts to slip
              D    Dsus        C
     And when your losing your grip
                  C/G               D                Dsus  G
     And when you know your hope is gone your not the only one
C/G          G      C/G
     Holding on

       G               C/G
     Today I got your letter
            G                 C/G
     I was moved by your honesty
           G                              C/G
     And I know you've been through some weather 
            Am7               G
     Let it drive you to your knees
              Am7              G
     The very place we need to be
