Subject: TAB: This ain't a love song - Bon Jovi

This ain't a love song (J.B.Jovi, R.Sambora & D.Child)

from the Bon Jovi album 'These Days'


Intro E | B | D | A | Am | E | B

Verse1
   E                                              B
I should have seen it coming when the roses died,
 D                                                  A
should have seen the end of the summer in your eyes
Am                                  E                B
I should have listened when you said good night you really meant good bye
E                                            B
Baby ain't it funny, how you ever learn to fall
D                                             A
You're really on your knees, when you think you're standing tall
Am                       E                 B
But only fools are 'know-it-alls' and I played that fool for you

PreChorus 1
A                               C#m                           B
I cried and I cried there were nights that I died for you baby
E                                 C#m                            B    -> Lick 1
I tried and I tried to deny that your love drove me crazy, baby

Chorus 1
E                                       B                   C#m             A
If the love that I got for you is gone, if the river I cried ain't that long
E                                B                 A
Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong, this ain't a love song

Verse2
Baby, I thought you and me would stand the test of time
Like we got away with the perfect crime,
But, we were just a legend in my mind I guess that I was blind
Remember those nights dancing at the masquerade,
The clowns wore smiles that wouldn't fade
You and I were the renegades, some things never change

PreChorus 2
It made me so mad 'cause I wanted it bad for us baby
Now it's so sad that whatever we had, ain't worth saving. -> Lick 1

Chorus 1 -> Lick 2

Chorus 2
If the pain that I'm feeling so strong, is the reason that I'm holding on
Then I'm wrong, yeah I'm wrong - this ain't a love song -> Lick 2

Solo D | A | Hm | G | D | A | G | G

PreChorus 1 -> Lick 1

Chorus 1 -> Lick 2

Chorus 2 -> Lick 2

End
Yes, I'm wrong, yeah, I'm wrong - this ain't a love song -> Lick 2
              E
Yes, I'm wrong, yeah, I'm wrong - this ain't a love song
E | B | D | A | Am | E | B
