Intro (note: This is the only 100% correct intro that there is for this song on the web,
the timing may be off a little. Listen to the intro carefully and you will hear the
in it. Also, I have learned that the best way to play this is finger picking using your 
for strings D and G, and using your index finger for the e string.)

Lyrics


From Album: Slippery When Wet

Wanted Dead Or Alive
J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora

It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we're wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I'd drive all night
Just to get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're alone and all you do is think

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen a million faces
And I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

good job on figuring out the very begining of the intro but not all of it was right. the rest of the intro was good. the verse had the right chords but other than that it wasnt right. you didnt even have the chorus. the solo was wrong as well. the outro was good. even though it wasnt that good a tab good try (seriosuly. not trying to be mean.)
