Dave Johnson It Just tickles my fancy. I love the sound of a bit of brass in there.

Hold tight sweet momma
Hold tight to my soul
Hold tight sweet momma
Never let me go

I know I am so far away
But baby I'll be home soon
Just know when you look at the sky
I'm looking at the same full moon

I walk around this big ole world
And you know I wanna hold your hand
But you can hold on to my loving soul
Know I'll be home when I can

Bridge: I feel you laying next to me
I see you smiling in my dreams
But when I roll over to hold you
Your side of the bed is empty

Spread your wings come fly with me
Mmm yeah one of these days
We'll have enough money to keep you by my side
but right now I want to hear you say

(Hold tight sweet poppa)
Hold tight to my soul
(Hold tight sweet poppa)
Never let me go
