[Intro]

Em    C     D    Em 
(Once upon a time, not so long ago ....)


[Verse]

Em                                 
Tommy used to work on the docks, Union's been on strike. He's down on his luck
      C      D       Em
It's tough,   so tough.
Em
Gina work the dinner all day, Working for her man. She brings home her pay
    C     D        Em
For love,     for love.


[Chorus]

                       C     D        Em
She says we've got to hold   on to   what we've got.
C                 D                 Em
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not.
       C        D         Em                C
We've got each other and that's a lot, for love.
      D
We'll give it a shot.

Em     C           D            G    C      D7sus4
Woo - oo,  we're halfway there, wo - oo,   livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G     C     D7sus4
Wo - oo,    livin'   on a prayer


[Verse 2]

Em
Tommy's got his six strings in hock, Now he's holding in, 

what he used to make it talk
    C      D            Em
So tough,      it's so tough.
Em
Gina dreams of running away, when she cries in the night, Tommy whispers:
           C     D        Em
Baby its O.K,       some day.


[Chorus]

              C     D        Em
We’ve got to hold   on to   what we've got.
C                 D                 Em
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not.
       C        D         Em                C
We've got each other and that's a lot, for love.
      D
We'll give it a shot.

Em     C           D            G    C      D7sus4
Woo - oo,  we're halfway there, wo - oo,   livin' on a prayer.
Em       C          D
Take my hand we'll make it, I swear
G     C     D7sus4
Wo - oo,    livin'   on a prayer
C
Livin' on a prayer.


[Solo]

Em   C    D     G      C     D 

Em   C    D     G      C     D 


[Chorus]

Em                        C   D     Em      D
Oooooooooh, we've got to hold on, ready or not
      C                           D
You live for the fight when it's all that you've got.
