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
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.
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
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

This is a good chord but I think the "wooo, livin' on a prayer." in each chorus actually goes:

G C D D7
wooo, livin' on a prayer.

Also, I think instead of D7sus4, most times just go to a D-D7 change-up.

And one little last thing, at the end of each chorus where it's:

C C7
