Am
Where have all the good men gone
    G                      X
And where are all the gods?
Am
Where's the street-wise Hercules
    C                      XX
To fight the rising odds?
Am                           G                  X
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
 F                                  
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
*G  (let ring)            
of what I need

[Chorus]
         Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                              G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
                Am
He's gotta be strong
                   F
And he's gotta be fast
    C                                  G x2 (let ring)
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
          Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                           G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C               G
And he's gotta be larger than life

larger then life


Am    C    F        G
da da da, da da da
Am     F      C   G x2 (let ring)
da da da da, dah
(Repeat)


Am
Somewhere after midnight
      F                X
In my wildest fantasy
Am
Somewhere just beyond my reach
        G                            XX
There's someone reaching back for me
Am                        G                     X
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
F                                          (C)
Isn't there a superman to sweep me off my feet?

[Chorus]
         Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                              G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
                Am
He's gotta be strong
                   F
And he's gotta be fast
    C                                  G x2 (let ring)
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
          Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                           G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C               G
And he's gotta be larger than life

[BRIDGE]
F                                 Am
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
G
Out where the lightning splits the sea
   Am
I could swear that there's someone, somewhere
C (let ring)
Watching me
F
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
G
And the storm and the raging flood
C                          G (let ring)
Oh his approach is like a fire in my blood

             F
I'll meet a hero
                 C
And then we'll dance till morning light
G          C
Dreaming he'll leave me,
      F                        G
He'll die tonight's the night

[Chorus]
         Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                              G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
                Am
He's gotta be strong
                   F
And he's gotta be fast
    C                                  G x2 (let ring)
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
          Am
I need a hero
 F                     C                           G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C               G
And he's gotta be larger than life

larger then life

Am    C    F        G
da da da, da da da
Am     F      C   G x2 (let ring)
da da da da, dah
(Repeat X6)
End on C (let ring).
