Holding Back the Ocean
written by Lynne/Douglas/Sostrin
Album: "Rockie Lynne"
5/4/06


CAPO III


INTRO: Bm  A7  D

  D
I packed up my truck and everything I own
  G
I said my goodbyes and threw away my phone
         D                      Bm          A7
I didn't know where I was goin', so I just drove
D
South of Miami, down through the Keys
G
Road finally ended when I hit the sea
         D                   Bm                        A7
I sent a postcard home sayin'  don't ya'll worry 'bout me


CHORUS:
                          D
I'm just holdin' back the ocean
                             G
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
                  A7                      G                        D       A7
Watchin' over the stars at night 'til the sun shines bright in the mornin'
                        D
I ain't worried 'bout a damn thing
                                G
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
                               Bm      A7                         D
I'm tired of goin' through the motions, I'm just holdin' back the ocean


INTRO


String bikinis and long blond hair
You can taste the salt in the air
People laughin' and actin' like they don't have a prayer
It's 24/7 at my new occupation
Don't even earn a dime but I wouldn't trade it
I'm workin' overtime on this, a permanent vacation


CHORUS


BRIDGE:
A          A#           B
It's up to you what you do with your life
C       G        A7
I'll be spendin' mine, just


CHORUS

D/F#                                Bm      Bm/B  Bm/F#  A7
     I'm tired of goin' through the motions
                     C-G-A7     C-G-A7  C-G-A7-D
I'm just holdin' back      the ocean
