      The preacher talked to me and he smiled. 

              F                               Bb
      Said, 'Come and walk with me, come and walk one more mile. 

                                              Cm
      Now for once in your life you're alone, 

               F                            G
      but you ain't got a dime, there's no time for the phone.' 



      
                 C                            Dm
      I've just gotta get a message to you, 

             F     G           C
      hold on,       hold on. 

                                                 Dm
      One more hour and my life will be through, 

              F    G          C
      hold on,       hold on. 


      


Bb                            Cm
      I told him I'm in no hurry, 

             F                                 Bb
      but if I broke her heart, then won't you tell her I'm sorry. 

                                        Cm
      And for once in my life I'm alone, 

                F
      and I've got to let her know 

               G
      just in time before I go. 


      


               C                            Dm
      I've just gotta get a message to you, 

             F     G           C
      hold on,       hold on. 

                                                 Dm
      One more hour and my life will be through, 

              F    G          C
      hold on,       hold on. 



      
F             Bb                          Cm
      Well I laughed but that didn't hurt, 

               F                            Bb
      and it's only her love that keeps me wearing this dirt. 

                                          Cm
      Now I'm crying but deep down inside, 

              F                       G
      well I did it to him, now it's my turn to die. 


      


             C                            Dm
      I've just gotta get a message to you, 

             F     G           C
      hold on,       hold on. 

                                                 Dm
      One more hour and my life will be through, 

              F    G          C
      hold on,       hold on. 



      

      D        C                       Em
      I've just gotta get a message to you, 

            G         A   D
      hold on,       hold on. 

      D                                         Em
      One more hour and my life will be through, 

            G         A    D
      hold on,       hold on.
