Hallo western union
Won't you listen to me man?
Had no time to say "good bye"
So take th is telegram
While I'm gone
She got to hold on to my love
While I'm gone
She got to hold on to my love

Breaks my heart to leave her
But I'm working with this band
I've got one chance to make it now
Please make her understand
That while I'm gone
She got to hold on to my love
While I'm gone
She got to hold on to my love
Don't give it away

Oh yeah, uh huh
So come on operator
And get my message through
She don't need to write me ev'ry day
All she's gotta do is hold on
Hold on to my love
While I'm gone
She got to hold on to my love
Don't let it slip away

Hold on
Hold on to my love
Hold on
Hold on to my love
