This is the long version from "Rio". The radio version is a bit shorter.

Artist: Duran Duran
Title: Save a Prayer (Rio)


[Verse 1]

Dm            F            Abmaj7    G           F      Dm    
You saw me standing by the wall corner of a main street 
Dm        F                  Abmaj7         G      F           
And the lights are flashing on your window sill
Dm     F              Abmaj7           G      F       Dm
All alone ain't much fun, so you're looking for the thrill
Dm            F           Abmaj7             G      F
And you know just what it takes and where to go


[Chorus]

Bm   Dmaj7                 G    F#m         A         Bm
Don't say a prayer for me now save it till the morning after

Bm       Dmaj7                 G    F#m            A      Dm
No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after

Dm    F    Abmaj7   G   2x       


[Verse 2]

Dm        F                Abmaj7            G         F        Dm 
Feel the breeze deep on the inside, look you down into the well
Dm      F                  Abmaj7            G    F  
If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire
Dm       F               Abmaj7       G          F      Dm
Take a chance Like all dreamers can't find another way
Dm         F              Abmaj7            G   F  
You don't have to dream it all, just live a day


[Chorus]

Bm   Dmaj7                 G    F#m         A         Bm
Don't say a prayer for me now save it till the morning after
Bm       Dmaj7                 G    F#m            A      Bm
No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after
Bm    Dmaj7       G    F#m      A      Bm   
                        Save it 'til the morning after
Bm    Dmaj7       G    F#m            A      Dm        
                         Save it 'til the morning after
Dm    F     Abmaj7     G     F      Dm   (2x)


[Verse 3]

Dm              F           Abmaj7           G           F        Dm 
Pretty looking road, try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin
Dm           F                Abmaj7     G       F 
Don't ask me why I'll keep my promise, melt the ice
Dm       F                  Abmaj7                   G      F        Dm 
And you wanted to dance so I asked you to dance but fear is in your soul
Dm           F                 Abmaj7              G         F        Bm 
Some people call it a one night stand but we can call it paradise     


[Chorus]

Bm   Dmaj7                 G    F#m         A         Bm
Don't say a prayer for me now save it till the morning after
Bm       Dmaj7                 G    F#m              A      Bm
No, don't say a prayer for me now, save it 'til the morning after

Bm       Dmaj7            G    F#m            A      Bm   
                               Save it 'til the morning after
Bm       Dmaj7            G    F#m            A      Bm        
                               Save it 'til the morning after
Bm       Dmaj7            G    F#m            A      Bm        
                               Save it 'til the morning after
Bm       Dmaj7             G    F#m            A      Dm        
                                Save it 'til the morning after
Dm        Abmaj7      G              F       G
                                     Do Do Do Do Do
Dm                            Abmaj7             G                                F       G
Save a prayer ‘till the morning after
Dm                            Abmaj7             G                                F       G
Save a prayer ‘till the morning after
Dm                      Abmaj7          G                     F        G

That Abmaj7 should be Bbmaj7 and best played x23231, with the index finger on 1st fret barred, and middle finger on the A at g-string 2nd fret, so you can keep it there coming both from the F and later from Dm

I agree that the chord should be Bbmaj7, but don't you mean x13231 ??
