Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...

              Holding Back The Years



       Verse 1:

                        Em9     A

       Holding back the years

                       Em9                    A

       Thinking of the fear I've had so long

                     Em9     A

       When somebody hears

                     Em9              A

       Listen to the fear that's gone


       Wrangled by the wishes of fater


       Open for the arms of mater


       Get to me but sooner or later


       Verse 2:

       Holding back the years

       Chance for me escape from all I'm gone

       Holding back the tears

       'Cause nothing here is wrong

       I've wasted all my tears

       Wasted all those years

       Nothing had the chance to be good

       Nothing ever could, yeah, oh, well



       Em7       A                         Em7       A

       I'll keep holding on                I'll keep holding on

       Em7       A                         Em7       A

       I'll keep holding on                I'll keep holding on, there's still time



       Well I've wasted all my tears

       Wasted all of those years

       And nothing had the chance to be good

       'Cause nothing ever could, oh, oh





       Holding, holding, holding ah la la la

       I say ooh yeah

       That's all I have today

       It's all I have to say
