WHO ARE YOU HOLDING NOW?

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


                      G                 D
             I.  your suitcase hits the ground with a crash
                     Em        D
                 but you don't hear.
                              G             C
                 with arms outstretched you bound with a dash
                             D
                 with joyful tears.
                                G
                 though I'm not there,
                 C            D
                 I can see it clear.


                     G           C       D
      CHORUS A:  and who are you holding now?
                       G      C
                 long ago you knew.
                          D     G    C
                 but with ev'ry heartbeat,
                 D      G     C
                 life begins anew.
                     D               G   C
                 old friends are all memories.
                 D    G      C
                 only now is true.
                    D           G   C
                 so who are you holding?
                 D       D7      G
                 who are you holding?


  INSTRUMENTAL:  G - C - D - D7 - C - G


                   G                  D
            II.  I feel you breathing warm on my chest
                     Em     D
                 and moving slow.
                             G         C
                 you know my needs without a request.
                              D
                 your answers flow.
                                   G
                 though you're not here,
                 C            D
                 I can see it clear.


                     G        C       D
      CHORUS B:  and who am I holding now?
                       G    C
                 long ago I knew.
                          D     G    C
                 but with ev'ry heartbeat,
                 D      G     C
                 life begins anew.
                     D               G   C
                 old friends are all memories.
                 D    G      C
                 only now is true.
                    D        G   C
                 so who am I holding?
                 D      D7    G
                 who am I holding?


                 /// REPEAT INSTRUMENTAL ///


                     G              D
           III.  and now your silhouette fills my door,
                    Em    D
                 we meet again.
                                G        C
                 you say you've grown to love me much more
                              D
                 than you did then.
                            G
                 it's not a dream,
                 C             D
                 no it's not a dream.


                     G           C       D
      CHORUS C:  and who are you holding now?
                       G      C
                 long ago you knew.
                          D     G    C
                 but with ev'ry heartbeat,
                 D      G     C
                 life begins anew.
                     D               G   C
                 old friends are all memories.
                 D    G      C
                 only now is true.
                    D           G   C
                 so who are you holding?
                 D       D7      C     G
                 who are you holding?
