Verse:
F
Where have all the good men gone 
    G
And where are all the gods? 
F
Where's the street-wise Hercules
   G
To fight the rising odds?
F                           G
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed? 
F                                 G
Late at night I toss and turn and dream 

of what I need 


Chorus:
          Am   C
I need a hero 
                      G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night 
              Am
He's gotta be strong 
              C
he's gotta be fast 
         G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am     C
I need a hero 
                     G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light 
              Am
He's gotta be sure 
              C
He's gotta be soon 
          G
And he's gotta be larger than life 
            Am
Larger than life 
Am                 C              G
Da da da da da da da da da da, da da da da da daa x2 


Verse:
F                   
Somewhere after midnight 
      G
In my wildest fantasies 
F                        
Somewhere just beyond my reach 
         G
There's someone reaching back for me 
F                         G
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat 
F                         G
Isn't there a superman to sweep me off my feet 


Chorus:
          Am   C
I need a hero 
                      G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night 
              Am
He's gotta be strong 
              C
he's gotta be fast 
         G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am     C
I need a hero 
                     G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light 
              Am
He's gotta be sure 
              C
He's gotta be soon 
          G
And he's gotta be larger than life 
            
Larger than life 


Bridge:
Dm
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above 
F
Out where the lightning splits the sea 
C
I could swear that there's someone somewhere 
G
Watching me 

Dm
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
F 
And the storm and the raging flood 
C
Oh his approach is like a
G
Fire in my blood 


Chorus:
        Am     C
I need a hero 
                     G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light 
              Am
He's gotta be sure 
              C
He's gotta be soon 
          G
And he's gotta be larger than life 
            
          Am   C
I need a hero 
                      G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night 
              Am
He's gotta be strong 
              C
he's gotta be fast 
         G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am     C
I need a hero 
                     G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light 
              Am
He's gotta be sure 
              C
He's gotta be soon 
          G
And he's gotta be larger than life 
            
Larger than life 


Outro:
Am                 C              G
Da da da da da da da da da da, da da da da da daa x2 
(Ohh)
(Larger than life)

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. It's a nice attempt, but some of the chords are flat wrong. The chord progression throughout most of the song is Am-G-F-C-E/G#.
