E			  A   E
If we're both not married by twenty-two
E		   A       B
Could I be so bold and ask you?
A		  B       E  Esus2  Dbm
If we're both not married by twenty-three
         A	       B       E
Will you make my year, and ask me?


E			  A         E
If we're both not married by twenty-four
E		                     A               B
Will you pass me those knee pads and I'll get on the floor
A		  B       E  Esus2  Dbm
If we're both not married by twenty-five
A			          B           E
I hope that there's some childish spark still alive


          A           E
Cos there are so many lessons
       A                 E
That I just never cared to learn
          A           E                    B
And there are so many questions that still burn, like


E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                Dbm   A     E
Will you hold my hand when I go?


-same chord progression throughout the song-

If I get to thirty and I don't have a wife
I'll ask you nicely but I won't ask twice
If I get to forty and I don't have a spouse
I'll fashion you a letter and I'll send it to your house

If I get to sixty will you let me slip away
Into an armchair for the rest of my days
Cos you've got your family and I've got mine
The love that we share is for another time


          A           E
Cos there are so many lessons
       A                 E
That I just never cared to learn
          A           E                    B
And there are so many questions that still burn, like


E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                A          E
Will you hold my hand when I go?
E                Dbm   A     E
Will you hold my hand when I go?

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
