(0:00) [Intro:] F Bb (4x)

(0:21) [Verso 1:]
F             C               -C#º           Dm
I played the part of a broken heart upon a shelf
    Am                -A4            Bb
I played that part so lonely and so well
  Bb         -Bbm                     F
Thought that love belonged to someone else
     C
Not me and you
 F        C                    -C#º                 Dm
Yeah, I know that you've been shattered, you been bruised
    Am               -A4                  Bb
We both know what it feels like when you lose
         Bb                -Bbm                  Dm  (Dm)
But I'd bet my life on the roll of the dice for you!

(1:02) [Refrão 1:]
                   Bb
If that's what it takes
        -C       F
That's what I'd do
              Bb
Tonite's the night
           -C          F
I'm gonna prove it to you
                    Dm
Do I have to break down
                      C
Baby just to break through
                   Bbm
If that's what it takes
                 F
That's what I'd do
                   Bbm  (Bbm[½])
If that's what it takes

(1:27) [Verso 2:]
F          C              -C#º                 Dm
I bet you counted all the tears I bet you've cried
            Am              -A4              Bb
I bet you swore you'd never let love back inside
           Bb              -Bbm             F
'Cause it hurt you way too bad to say good-bye
                  C                 -C#º           Dm
Now, there'll be times when I might put us to the test
          Am             -A4                Bb
And it's hard for broken hearts to just forget
          Bb                      -Bbm                  Dm (Dm)
But I'm driving blind, I'll lay it all on the line for you
(2:03) [Refrão 2:]
                   Bb
If that's what it takes
        -C       F
That's what I'd do
              Bb
Tonite's the night
           -C          F
I'm gonna prove it to you
                    Dm
Do I have to break down
                      C    C
Baby just to break through
                   Bbm
If that's what it takes
                 F
That's what I'd do
                   Bbm       F(*)
If that's what it takes, oh yeah!

(2:29) [Solo:] F C Dm Am Bb Bbm F C

(2:49) [Ponte:]
Bb
  So when you feel like jumping
Bbm
  Just when your heart starts pumpking
F
  When you're standing out on that ledge
Dm                        Bb
  Staring over the edge / I'll be there to talk you down
      Bbm                          Dm   Dm!
I'll be there before you hit the ground

(3:10) [Refrão 3:]

If that's what it takes / That's what I'd do

Tonite's the night / I'm gonna prove it to you
                    Dm                          C    C
Do I have to break down / Baby just to break through

(3:28) [Refrão 4:]
                   Bb      -C              F
If that's what it takes / That's what I'd do
                              Bb        -C                F
If we take the time to do it right / I know we'll pull through
                   Dm                     C
If it took all my life / I'd prove it to you
                   Bbm                     F
If that's what it takes / That's what I'd do
                   Bbm  F Bb-C
If that's what it takes

The chords are quite difficult - I don't mean C or Bb and C# isn't a problem as well, but -C#° or A4, i don't really know how to play them, but maybe I am just too bad.

Excellent excellent tab! Very accurate and a nice level of difficulty, if only I had Bon Jovi's vocal range without sounding like a strangled cat on all the choruses.

As for the -C# chord, it is a bit odd, but I think what works just as well, in fact better, is simply C7. The A4 from Am is not bad since you just add your little finger to the 2nd string.

Wow this is a really good interpretation. I just discovered the song, thought it was aswesome so decided to check out the tabs, but I scored some chords instead. Really very well done.
