Bed of Roses

Bon Jovi

[Intro]

Bb  F  Bb  F  (x2)

[Verse 1]

 Bb
Sitting here wasted and wounded

           F
This old piano

        Bb
Trying hard to capture the moment

                F
This morning I don't know

          Am                       Bb
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head

           F
And some blond gave me nightmares

                         Bb
Think she's still in my bed

       Bb                     C                         F
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

[Verse 2]

        Bb
With an ironclad fist

                                F
I wake up, and French kiss the morning

            Bb
While some marching band keeps its own beat

                      F
In my head while we're talking

      Am                         Bb
About all of the things, that I long to believe

       F
About love, the truth, what you mean to me

          Bb
And the truth is

 Bb          C           F   F  C C*
Baby, you're all that I need

[Chorus]

         Dm Dm
I wanna lay

     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses

       Dm  Dm
For tonight

    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails

               Bb
Oh, I want to be

          F
Just as close as

     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is

     Dm  C   Bb  Bb
And lay you down

Bb      Bb*    F
  On a bed of roses

[Verse 3]

           Bb
Well, I'm so far away

                                F
Each step that I take is on my way home

          Bb
A King's ransom in dimes

                                      F
Given each night to see through this payphone

         Am
Still I run out of time

         Bb
Or it's hard to get through

          F
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you

      Bb
I'll just close my eyes, whisper

 Bb     C             F  F C C*
Baby, blind love is true

[Chorus]

         Dm Dm
I wanna lay

     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses

       Dm  Dm
For tonight

    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails

               Bb
Oh, I want to be

          F
Just as close as

     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is

     Dm  C   Bb  Bb
And lay you down

Bb      Bb*    F     C
  On a bed of roses

[Bridge]

            Bb
Well, this hotel bar hangover

  C                         F
Whiskey's gone dry, the barkeeper's wig's crooked

And she's giving me the eye

   Bb
I might have said yeah

       Bb             C          F  F C   C*
But I laughed so hard I think I died, uh yeah!...

[Solo]

Dm  C  Bb  F  (x3)

Dm  C  Bb  Bb  Bb  Bb* F

[Verse 4]

        Bb
Now as you close your eyes

                        F
Know I'll be thinking about you

          Bb
While my mistress she calls me

                         F
To stand in her spotlight again

            Bb
Tonight, I won't be alone

                                      F
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely

          Dm          C             Bb
I've got nothing to prove for it's you

          Bb       F   C
That I'd die to defend

[Chorus]

         Dm Dm
I wanna lay

     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses

       Dm  Dm
For tonight

    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails

               Bb
Oh, I want to be

          F
Just as close as

     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is

     Dm  C   Bb  Bb Bb
And lay you down

         Dm Dm
I wanna lay

     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses

       Dm  Dm
For tonight

    C         Bb  F
I sleep on a be...ed of nails!

           Bb
I want to be

          F
Just as close as

     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is!

 Dm  C   Bb ( Bb)
Lay you down

(Bb)    ( Bb*)   F
    On a bed of roses
