Livin' On A Prayer
Bon Jovi

Em C D ...

(Once upon a time, not so long ago ....)

Em                                 Em/F# (022002)
Tommy used to work on the docks
Em
Union's been on strike. He's down on his luck
      C      D           Em
It's though,   so though.

Gina work the dinner all day
Working for her man. She brings home hre pay
For love, for love.

                       C   D                Em
She says we've got to hold on to what we've got.
C                 D                           Em
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not.
       C        D                 Em        C
We've got each other and that's a lot, for love.
      D
We'll give it a shot.

Em  C           D           G                 D7sus4
Woooo, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G  C  D7sus4
Wooo, livin' on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock,
now he's holding in, what he used to make it talk
So though, it's so though.

Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers:
Baby it's O.K., some day.

We've got to hold on ....

Em  C           D           G                 D7sus4
Woooo, we're halfway there, wooo, livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G  C  D7sus4
Wooo, livin' on a prayer
C
Livin' on a prayer.


Solo: Em, C, D, G, C, D ...


Em                        C   D             Em D
Oooooooooh, we've got to hold on, ready or not
      C                           D
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got.


Bb   Eb        Fsus4     F
Woooooo, we're half ---- way there
Bb   Eb  F7sus4
Woooooo, livin' on a prayer
Gm      Eb             F
Take my hand and we'll make it I swear
Bb  Eb F7sus4
Woooo, livin on a prayer



Hi, this is my version of Bon Jovis 'Livin' on a prayer'. It is the version
from the Club-Gigs 1992 and the same which was played in Europe on the
'Keep the faith' tour. Much better version for acoustic guitar, but if you
add the guitar-riff you can play it with a band too.
Use capo on 3rd fret. The original is with em - C - D  (without capo), but
much harder to sing.

Enjoy.
