Bed of Roses by Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Desmond child, David Brian,
Alec David, and Ticco Torries

Tabbed by Imran Sajjad and Mark Balfour

note: This tab is submitted after a lot of correction. It has lead guitar, better
chords, a better solo and intro with correct pith and effects, and better rhythm.
It is a 100% correct by me but if you think its incorrect in some place, mail me @
dal_roti13@hotmail.com . By the way this is a classic song by bon jovi and you ll
enjoy playing it as much you enjoy listening to it. The best part is the solo when
you play it with chords. its sounds even better than it does on the CD. Any way,
have fun.

Verse 1:

Prog A                                         Prog B
Sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano

Prog A                                            Prog B
Trying hard to capture the moment, this morning I dont know

        Am  Prog C            Bb                          F
cause a bottle of vodka still lodged in my head and some blonde

                                                Bb Prog D
gave me nightmares, think that shes still in my bed

     Bb                      C                       F
As I dream about movies they wont make of me when Im dead


Verse 2:

Prog A                                              Prog B    Prog E
With an iron-clad fist I wake up and french-kiss the morning

Prog A                                                           Prog B    Prog F
While some marching band keeps its own beat in my head while were talking

          Am  Prog C       Bb                       F         
but about all the things I longed to believe, about love, the truth,

                            Bb      prog D
what you mean to me and the truth is

Bb         C            F  Prog G
Baby youre all that I need


Chorus:
        Dm      C         Bb     F   Prog H
I wanna lay you down in a bed of roses

      Dm         C          Bb     F   Prog I
for Tonight I'll sleep on a bed of nails

               Bb         F            Bb   F
ohhhh! I wanna be just as close as the Holy Ghost is

Dm  C   Bb                F
Lay you down, on a bed of roses

Verse 3:

Prog A                                             Prog B   Prog J
when Im so far away, each step that I takes on my way home

Prog A                                                    Prog B        Prog K
A kings ransom in dimes Id give each night to see through this payphone

        Am Prog C              Bb                           F
still I run out of time or its hard to get through till the bird on the wire

                                     F   Prog L
flies me back to you I just close my eyes 

            Bb   C              F  Prog M
And whisper baby blind love is true

[Chorus]

Prog M          Bb                  C
      where the hotel bars hangover whiskeys gone dry

       F                             Am
The barkeepers wig crooked, and shes giving me the eye

      Bb                          Bb              C         F   Prog M
and I might have said yeah, but I laughed so hard I think I died

oh yeah
