  1. Holding His Own

From the recording Gleeson and Moore

Lyrics

USE TO BE THE ONLY WIFE HE DIDN'T SLEEP WITH
WAS THE ONE HE SLIPPED THE WEDDING BAND ON
ANYTHING THAT SHINED
THAT BOY WOULD FIND
AND SPEND A LITTLE TIME
THEN HE WAS GONE

BUT CAME A POINT WHERE HIS HEART GOT BROKEN
SHE REALIZED SHE DIDN’T HAVE TO BE ALONE
IT WAS HARD BUT HE TRIED
TO GET ON WITH HIS LIFE
CAUSE AFTER THE GOODBYE
LIFE KEEPS GOING ON


HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN
GOTTA A HECK OF A GRIP
HOLDING HIS OWN
BUT SOMETIMES HE SLIPS
HE’LL CALL SOME GIRL HER NAME
THEN THE MOMENT IS GONE
OH HOW HE WISHES
HE WAS HOLDING HIS OWN

HE MADE HIS CHOICES WHILE HE WAS L-U-I
OH YEAH LOVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
JIM BEAM STATE OF MIND
WHATEVER HE COULD FIND
BRAIN LAGGING BEHIND
ARMS AROUND A WHISKEY GIRL
BUT YOU CAN’T LEAVE A HOME FIRE UNATTENDED
SOMEONE MAY DECIDE TO FAN THOSE FLAMES
IT HAPPENED TO HIM
MADE HIS HEAD SWIM
HIS CHANCES ARE SLIM
HE’LL GET BACK IN HER WORLD

HE’S HOLDING HIS OWN
GOTTA A HECK OF A GRIP
HOLDING HIS OWN
BUT SOMETIMES HE SLIPS
HE’LL CALL SOME GIRL HER NAME
THEN THE MOMENT IS GONE
OH HOW HE WISHES
HE WAS HOLDING HIS OWN
