G Gmaj7           C             D       G
I can't be held responsible for blown behavior
  Gmaj7       C            D    G
I lost all contact with my only savior
No one locked me out because I failed to phone up
I can't bear to live forever like a loner

Don't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat

It's easy to be sad when you lack a partner
But how would I react to a broken heart now
It ain't really true rock and roll unless I'm
Hanging onto you and when I hold it next time

I won't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat
Don't let go the coat

I try to explain but you never understand it
I need your body but I can't just demand it

Bm7         Gmaj7/B         C  D    Dsus2
I won't let go like a stray at heel
                              (Never let him out of your sight)

Bm7          Gmaj7/B            C D      Dsus4  D
Every lonely wife knows the way I feel
                                 (Don't let go tonight)
Don't let go the coat
Never let go the coat...

Your friends all pass for life is just a market
But you have to finish everything you started
So I live my life tearing down the runway
Sure to get the hang of hanging in there someday

Don't let go the coat...

Won't get no more chances 
Ooh, forget the war dances
Don't let go...
Go blind and hang on 
Don't try the slang, son
Never let go the coat, no, no
