Subject:  Don't Stop Believing by Journey
Album:    Escape, 1981

Journey is one of the great Rock band from the 80's that blended Rock Ballads,
which became the foundation for the future bands.  This song "Don't Stop
Believing" is a beautiful and inspirational song.  The tab I have below is not
perfect, but it should sound pretty good. Give it a try !

 A singer in a Smokey room 
 The smell of wine and cheap perfume
 For a smile they can share the night
 It goes on and on and on and on

 Strangers                Waiting
 Shadows                  searching in the night
 Street lights people     living just to find emotion
