Verse: 1

F C
You shouldn't wade out in deep water
G
When you don't know how to swim
G7
He told you it was over
C
And like a fool you followed him
G7/B Am G
Into a whirlpool of emotion
C/E Dm
Spinning out of control
G7 C
It's killing you, but you won't let him go


Chorus:
F
Let go of the stone
C
If you don't want to drown
G G7
In the sea of heartache
C
That's draggin' you down
F
It's pulling you under
C
And you keep hangin' on
G
If I'm ever gonna save you
C
Let go ot the stone


Verse 2:

Oh don't you realize the danger
And the hurt you're headed for
Put your arms around me
And swim with me to shore
Just let go of theat ol' mem'ry
I know it's hard to do
But I'll be here
Holdin' on to you

Chorus:
