Hold My Hand

(Maurice Elwin / Noel Gay / Harry Graham)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

Hold my hand, no matter what the weather
Just you hold my hand, we'll walk through life together
For you'll find in me that kind of a friend
Who will see you through to the end
So if you'll hold my hand, we both shall walk more steadily
For understand you hold my heart
Already in a dreamland where I have planned
Then I shall hold your hand forever
