Thirty-Nine And Holding recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis written by Bill Rice and Jerry Foster
G He's out there somewhere every night C
G Where the music's playing loud He's doing all those fifty's steps A7 D7 He's in a 1980 crowd G Dim lights hide the mileage line C G The Clairol hides the gray C G And he won't mention anything D7 G To give his old age away
G Oh he's thirty-nine and holding D7 G Holding everything he can C G From seventeen to twenty-five A7 D7 To prove he's still a man G He's holding to a candle
G And it's a-burning at both ends C G He's thirty-nine and holding D7 G Holding everything he can You can bet he'll never see C G Thirty-nine again He should have turned loose long ago A7
D7 But still he a hanging it in G He still thinks that he's the man C G That he once used to be C G He's thirty-nine and holding D7 G And acting twenty-three repeat # 3 & 4
