[Intro]

Em Em C D Em Em

C D Em 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
Am D Em
It’s tough, so tough
Em
Gina works the diner all day

Working for her man,

she brings home her pay
Am D Em
For love, for love

[Pre-Chorus]

C G D Em
She says we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
C G
‘Cause it doesn’t make a difference
D Em
If we make it or not
C G D Em
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
C D N.C.
For love, we’ll give it a shot

[Chorus]

Em C D
Whooah, we’re half way there
G C D
Whooah, livin’ on a prayer
Em C D
Take my hand and we’ll make it I swear
G C D Em
Whooah, livin’ on a prayer

[Verse]

Em
Tommy’s got his six string in hock

Now he’s holding in what he used

To make it talk
Am D Em
So tough, it’s tough
Em
Gina dreams of running away

When she cries in the night

Tommy whispers:
Am D Em
“Baby it’s okay, someday”

[Pre-Chorus]

C G D Em
We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
C G
‘Cause it doesn’t make a difference
D Em
If we make it or not
C G D Em
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot
C D N.C.
For love, we’ll give it a shot

[Chorus]

Em C D
Whooah, we’re half way there
G C D
Whooah, livin’ on a prayer
Em C D
Take my hand and we’ll make it I swear
G C D
Whooah, livin’ on a prayer
C
livin’ on a prayer…

[Solo]

We’ve got to hold on, ready or not

You live for the fight when that’s all that you’ve got
