Recorded at Epic in August 1973, “We’re Gonna Hold On” . Written by George Jones and Earl Montgomery. Had their first of three number-one songs on the U.S. country chart. Single from George Jones and Tammy Wynette 19193 album “We’re Gonna Hold On”. On the original 45 record, The B-Side was “My Elusive Dreams” from the pen of B. Sherrill and C. Putman.

 

The song was released not long after the couple’s reconciliation after Tammy filed for divorce on August 1, 1973 due to George’s increasing bouts of drunkenness.Like many of their songs, “We’re Gonna Hold On” seemed to mirror their stormy marriage, with Jones telling Music City News in 1973, “I was tired of waking up sick and having people talk about me – having my wife and children mad at me…I just looked at the situation and realized all the pain I was causing and all the pain I was suffering wasn’t worth it. We love each other very much.”

George Jones and Tammy Wynette – We’re Gonna Hold On Lyrics

 

We’re gonna hold on, we’re gonna hold on

We’re gonna hold on to each other

Life can be rough, sometimes it’s kind

A real good life is hard to find

But the best love is the one we’ve known

And the faith we have between us makes it grow

Some love lives and some love don’t

We’ve got the kind of love we want

It brings us happiness all through the day

And nothing can ever make it go away

We’re gonna hold on, we’re gonna hold on

We’re gonna hold on to each other

Time will tell if you’re right or wrong

We know we’re right by holding on

And the future is set for you and me

Filled with love the way we both want it to be

We’re gonna hold on, we’re gonna hold on

We’re gonna hold on to each other

We’re gonna hold on, we’re gonna hold on

We’re gonna hold
