(Radney Foster/Harlan Howard)

Baby,it's a scary old world we're livin' in
Sometimes it's hard to tell who's really your friend
But there's not much that I'm sure of but one thing's the Gospel truth
I wouldn't be so damned afraid of what's on the evenin' news
If I could just wake up every mornin'
Lyin' next to you

Yeah,hold on to me another minute
Treasure every second while we're in it
This love so strong
Baby,let it linger on
Hang on tight,let's chase tomorrow
Share the dreams,survive the sorrow
This scary old world,baby,honestly
Could sure use lovers just like you an me

Baby,I think it's time we made our move
An do the things that only true lovers do
An I need you right here with me,very single step
I'll give you this heart and soul and pray that God will help
An be our shelter from the storm
Till my dyin' breath

Yeah,hold on to me another minute
Treasure every second while we're in it
This love so strong
Baby,let it linger on
Hang on tight,let's chase tomorrow
Share the dreams,survive the sorrow
This scary old world,baby,honestly
Could sure use lovers just like you an me

Yeah,hold on to me another minute
Treasure every second while we're in it
This love so strong
Baby,let it linger on
Hang on tight,let's chase tomorrow
Share the dreams,survive the sorrow
This scary old world,baby,honestly
Could sure use lovers just like you an me

Just like you an me
Just like you an me

Baby,just like an me
Just like you an me
