There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
this is my version of Bon Jovis 'Never say goodbye' from the 'Slippery when wet' album 1986. Actually it 
the 'unplugged' version from one of these many Live CDs and it is in the wrong key too:-), because it 
to sing. The correct key would be one step higher. Just change G -> A, bm -> c#m, F -> G and so on.In the
intro you have to add 2 to every fret number. If you have the possibility sing it as a duet in the chorus
(listen the live CD) it is quite beautiful and not that type of heavy-standard-ballad as it is on the
studio LP.


Never say goodbye (J.B.Jovi & R.Sambora)

  G        Bm        C          Cm        G

[Verse 1]
G                               Bm
As I sit in this smoky room the night about to end
F                                               C
I pass my time with strangers, but the bottle's my only friend
G                                       Bm
Remember when we used to park on Butler Street out in the dark
F                                               C
Remember when we lost the keys and you lost more than that in my back seat, believe it
G                                       Bm
Remember when we used to talk about busting out, we'd break their hearts.

F          C/B         F     C/B
Together                forever
G                               Bm
Never say goodbye, never say goodbye
C                                       Cm
You and me and my old friends, hoping it would never end
G                               Bm
Say goodbye, never say goodbye
C                                       Cm
Holding on we got to try, holding on to never say goodbye

[Intro] (only first time)

[Verse 2]
Remember days of skipping school, racing cars and being cool,
With a six pack and a radio, we didn't need no place to go
Remember at the prom that night, you and me we had a fight,
But the band they played our favorite song and I held you in my arms so strong
We'd guess you'd say we used to talk about busting out we'd break their hearts


Solo G | Bm | C | Eb - F | G | Bm | C | Eb - F

G                                       Bm
Oh I guess you'd say we used to talk about busting out we'd break their hearts


G | Bm | C | Eb6 - F | G | Bm | C | Cm | G

C/B  x22010 or (easyer) x20010

I don't know for witch version this is for, but for the unplugged version the chords for the verse are A C#m7 G D and the chorus is A C#m7 D Dm. The intro is in A major scale but instead around the 15 fret is played around the third. Their guitars are tunned one step down (as usual for BJ's live :)) so if you don't want to tune down your guitar you can play barre chords one fret down than the real chords -> Ab Cm7 Gb Db :)
