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
