Did you slip on that last step
Was it just too steep a climb
Don't look down - just hold on tight now
Put your hand in mine
These strong winds can blow you over
And the air is so damn thin
The hardest part is to begin now
Put your hand in mine
Put your hand in mine
Put your hand in mine
Put your hand in mine

Did your words freeze on your breath
Did your thoughts get trapped inside
You know talk's so overrated
Put your hand in mine

Put your hand in mine
Put your hand in mine
Put your hand in mine
We may be walkin'
For a long long time
Put your hand in mine
If we reach out for each other
We can build upon our love
It's so close now I can feel it
Put your hand in mine...

The seamless and thoughtful musical segue from "Wait for Her" by Roger Waters into this tune by Largo is one of the many reasons I enjoy and appreciate RP.

Bummer for you, I guess.
Repetitive lyrics and music, but nice on both nonetheless. I had to check myself for a minute. A few bars of the male singer resembled Roger McGuinn. 
So...what if I want to put my hand somewhere else? Will we have a problem?

Hmm, whose agent called whom to get this project started? Sorry — love each of these singer's work, but this just has that "has been" washed up "let's get the band back together" sound.

 
This album was essentially a project of "Americana" music and featured various artists; it was apparently an idea of Rob Hyman and Rick Chertoff, not so much "agents calling one another".
The song was short of a sufficient budget for lyrics. 
Meh.
I only rate songs I consider 6+ or better in keeping with my 'if you can't say something nice, don't say anything' philosophy.

a 4.8 rating,
I wonder what the lowest rated RP song is

7 -  Musically I like it, lyrically not so much.  It probably would sound better from a real stereo with floor speakers as opposed to ear buds on an I-Phone.

 
nope. still shit.
Oh, I understand now why I thought this was The Hooters.

Well, isn't that special?

{#Beat}  Bad Bill, bad!


As the song says \"...so overrated.\" Even at 5.1 I have to agree... :p
Isn\'t this the alternate track to Wish You Were Here? Listen to that bass line. lord knows you\'ll have enough chances to hear it played over and over again.

yes! 'put your hand in mine'.. ad infinitum :evil:
I like it, but which came first, this or \"Dueling Dalton\'s\" Eagles - Desperado album ??
Man, I haven\'t heard anything from a \"Hooters\" member in a while and after about 2 minutes of this song, I\'m happy I haven\'t! The Hooters were cool when they played my high school in the 80\'s. Unfortunately, that flavor has grown stale :roll:
I found the imagry of cold interesting
