TRACK 1

Song:It-s my life

Artist: Bon Jovi

Written by: Bon Jovi

Album: Crush¦ 2000

The song is carried on power chords; the guitar part is the only thing I-m transcribing.

The guitaring on this song is based upon the effect of a talk-box

Intro- C5 | C5 | ~ | ~ | x2

C5 N.C

This ain-t a song for the broken hearted (repeat intro)

C5 N.C

A silent prayer for faith departed (repeat intro)

C5

I ain-t gonna be just a face in the crowd

F5

You-re gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

Chorus: -

C5 G#5 

It-s my life; it-s now or never

Eb5 Bb5

I ain-t gonna live forever,

C5 G#5 Bb5

I just want to live when I-m alive

C5 G#5

It-s my life; my heart is like an open highway

Eb5 Bb5 

Like franky said I did it my way,

C5 G#5 Bb5

I just wanna live when I-m alive

It-s my life. (repeat intro)

This is for ones who stood their ground

Like Tommy and Gina, never backed down

Tomorrow-s getting harder make no mistake

Luck ain-t even lucky got to make your own breaks

Chorus:

Solo: G#5 | Bb5 | C5 | F5 | C5 |

Bridge: -

C5 

You better stand tall when they-re calling you out

I never knew I had a dream

If I tried, you'd make believe 

That you believed my lies 







Chorus: 



Bridge:



A

You pick me up when I fall down

you ring the bell before they count me out

If I was drowning you would part the sea

And risk your own life to rescue me, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Sick of dreaming dreams that never come true 

Am F C G Am F C G 

One way street and I know where its leading to

I'm going down, down, down, down, down 

it's a two-story town 



(Repeat one line of the Intro)





There's a girl that I sleep with, got ecstasy eyes,

they promised her roses and American pies

I called her and my demons 

I kissed them all goodbye

Woh, oh, oh. In a two story town 







Chorus: 

Am

One shot to make a move now 

F 

The ghosts are calling me out

in a two story town 

But you're never going to find me in the lost and found 



Chorus: 


Chorus 2: 



It's just the same old sights and the same old sounds 

I want to take my horse and ride it off this merry-go-round 

I won't give in and I won't back down 

I'm going down, down, down, down down 

I ain't going down, down, down, down, down 

Never going down, down, down, down, down 

In a two-story town,

In this two story town.

A little wild a little green, been up and down and in between

G 

After all these years an miles of memories,

Bm7 A G

I-m still chasing dreams, but I ain-t looking over my shoulder.

Chorus:

D G

I like the bed I-m sleeping in, just like me it-s broken in

A D

It-s not old, just older

D 

Like my favourite pair of torn blue jeans,

G

The skin I-m in is all right with me

A D

It-s not old, just older

It-s good to see your face you ain-t no worse for wear

Breathing that California air

When we took on the world we were young and brave

Got secrets that we-ll take to the grave

Standing here shoulder to shoulder.

Chorus:



I-m not old enough to sing the blues,

But I-ve worn a hole in the souls of these shoes

You can roll the dice until they call your bluff

But you can-t win, until you-re not afraid to you

D*

Well I look in the mirror, I don-t hate what I see

Just a few more lines staring back at me

Now the nights, have gone a little bit colder

Hey man, I got to run but you take care

If you see coach -T- tell him I-ve cut my hair

Dressed up, for a big date, like Halloween day but it was 4th July

C Em F

Now a car crash, with a suitcase and a painted face,

G Dm F

She was one of a kind; she wears a plastic crown like Cinderella

And roller skates in bed

He rides a greyhound, from his hometown, when he comes around,

Because they don-t let him drive now, mixed up, as a milkshake

But make no mistake; Crash is looking like a star

Chorus:

C Em F G

You and me, we-re invincible, together.

C Em F G

We can be, oh so tragical, whatever 

Am E C D

Dressed up just like Ziggy, but he couldn-t play guitar

F G C

Captain Crash, and the beauty Queen from Mars (Repeat one line of intro)

Share a toothpick, trading lipstick

Watch some traffic, for days in the diner

Hold hands, making big plans, playing superman

He was wearing eyeliner

Another local legend with his long time lucky charm.

Chorus:

Am E G F

Drunk on love as you can get, getting high on lust, and cigarettes

Am E F G

Living life, with no regrets, at least they-re going to try to fly

Solo: C | Em | F | G |

Final chorus:

You and me, we-re invincible, together

We can be, oh so tragical, whatever

We-re Sid and Nancy, Fred and Ginger, Clyde and Bonnie

Liz and Richard, Kurt and Courtney, Bacall and Bogie, Joltin- Joe and Ms. Monroe here-s Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen From Mars

They-re like you and me, Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars

Intro- F | Bb | Gm | C |

She won-t let me buy her jewellery,

She don-t want things that she can keep

She wears wildflowers in her hair, then throws them to the sea

Gm C

She-s the beginning and the end of me

Chorus:

F Bb Gm 

She-s, a mystery, my most beautiful regret

C F

I will never understand her, She-s, a mystery





I still don-t know what to call her

She says that words don-t mean a thing

She changes her name everyday

And lies all the time

I feel lucky to call her mine

Chorus:

Gm C 

The only promise I can keep, even in my dreams she ruins me

Dm C F Bb

She-s everything in the world that you cannot explain

Gm C

But she throws me a smile it-s like fire in the rain



Chorus:

F Bb Gm 

She-s, a mystery, there-s no defence it-s innocence

C F Bb

But she won-t let you see, -cause she-s, a mystery.

That-s it. Ha Ha.

I want to take my horse and ride it off this merry-go-round

I ain't going down, down, down, down, down 

Never going down, down, down, down, down 

In a two-story town,

In this two story town.

After all these years an miles of memories,

The skin I-m in is all right with me

Breathing that California air

When we took on the world we were young and brave

Got secrets that we-ll take to the grave

Standing here shoulder to shoulder.

You can roll the dice until they call your bluff

But you can-t win, until you-re not afraid to you

Well I look in the mirror, I don-t hate what I see

C Em F

Now a car crash, with a suitcase and a painted face,

G Dm F

She was one of a kind; she wears a plastic crown like Cinderella

And roller skates in bed

He rides a greyhound, from his hometown, when he comes around,

Because they don-t let him drive now, mixed up, as a milkshake

But make no mistake; Crash is looking like a star

Chorus:

C Em F G

You and me, we-re invincible, together.

We can be, oh so tragical, whatever 

Am E C D

Dressed up just like Ziggy, but he couldn-t play guitar

F G C

Captain Crash, and the beauty Queen from Mars (Repeat one line of intro)

Share a toothpick, trading lipstick

Watch some traffic, for days in the diner

Hold hands, making big plans, playing superman

He was wearing eyeliner

Another local legend with his long time lucky charm.

Chorus:

Am E G F

Drunk on love as you can get, getting high on lust, and cigarettes

Am E F G

Living life, with no regrets, at least they-re going to try to fly

Solo: C | Em | F | G |

Final chorus:

You and me, we-re invincible, together

We can be, oh so tragical, whatever

We-re Sid and Nancy, Fred and Ginger, Clyde and Bonnie

They-re like you and me, Captain Crash and the Beauty Queen from Mars

She-s the beginning and the end of me

Chorus:

F Bb Gm 

She-s, a mystery, my most beautiful regret

She says that words don-t mean a thing

She changes her name everyday

And lies all the time

I feel lucky to call her mine

Chorus:

Gm C 

The only promise I can keep, even in my dreams she ruins me

Dm C F Bb

She-s everything in the world that you cannot explain

Gm C

But she throws me a smile it-s like fire in the rain



Chorus:

F Bb Gm 

She-s, a mystery, there-s no defence it-s innocence

For you folks in my country (Australia), or if you’ve heard the bonus  song Neurotica, I’m sorry I couldn’t tab it, but I couldn’t be stuffed!! Not really I’m working on it. Keep a look out for it.

That’s it the whole crush album. I hope you people learn these songs, so I havern’t wasted my time.
