Holding Out For A Hero- Ella Mae Brown

Tuning: C#, G#, C#, F#, A#, D#
Drop D and Half-Step down

Tabbed By: Danny North

This is my first tab! But as far as I can hear, this is correct!

THIS is the tuning. No capo fret 5, nor 1 nor WHATEVER ELSE. There’s a clear C# 
base note throughout the song! Yes, it’s a little annoying tuning, but this is how 
you do the real deal.

In the Intro, Guitar 1 would be playing the “Intro Riff” and Guitar 2 plays the 
chords- Also, when Guitar 2 starts playing on the “G”s in the intro, it strums it 
once then hits the harmonics on the base strings on fret 5 then continues 
strumming. Listen to the song well to get what I mean.

(For a lack of knowledge of these Chord names, I simplified them to their base 
note representation)

Also, there's a heavy emphasis on the base notes of each chord, so if you want to 
even ignore the last ones it'll still sound fine)

[Verse]

G                                       D
   Where have all the good men gone And where are all the gods?
G                                      A
   Where's the street-wise Hercules To fight the rising odds?
G                             D
   Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
G                                    D#(HOLD)
   Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need

[Chorus]
         Bm  G                        D                         A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Bm                    G             D                          A*
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
         Bm G                         D                        A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light

              Bm                  G             D                        A*
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life
           
larger than life-

[Interlude]

Bm                   G   D              A*
Da da da da da da da da, da da da da da da
Bm                   G   D              A*
Da da da da da da da da, da da da da da da

[Verse]

G                                 D
   Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasy
G                                         D
   Somewhere just beyond my reach there's someone reaching back for me
G                            A
   Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat 
G                            D# (HOLD)
   isn’t there a superman to sweep me off my feet

[Chorus]
         Bm  G                        D                        A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Bm                    G             D                         A*
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
         Bm  G                        D                       A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Bm                  G             D                      A*
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life

[Bridge]

D#                                             G
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above, out where the lightning splits the sea
D#                                            A*(HOLD)
I could swear that there's someone somewhere, watching me
D#                                                   G
Through the wind and the chill and the rain, and the storm and the flood
D#                                                A*(HOLD)
I can feel his approach like the fire in my blood

[Chorus]
         Bm  G                       D                  A*
I need a hero-  and then we’ll dance till the morning light
                 Bm G        D                               A*
Dreaming He’ll lead me, held tight, tonight’s the night 
         Bm  G                        D                            A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Bm                    G              D                         A*
He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
         Bm  G                        D                         A*
I need a hero-  I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Bm                   G             D                      A*
He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life

larger than life

Bm                   G   D              A*
