Every Word Was A Piece Of My Heart 
from the album "Destination Anywhere" (1997)
by Jon Bon Jovi 
Transcribed by Antti Iiskola

This is the most Bon Jovi-sounding song on the record, wouldn't you agree.
The basic rhythm figure continues through all the verses, bass implies 
different harmonies to the two chords Dadd9 and Asus4/E. In the second verse
the letters behind slashes (i.e. Dadd9/F#) are the bass notes, guitar plays
just Rhy.fig.1. The lyrics are a bit faulty, I'll fix them later. I hope you
get the idea. Enjoy, and e-mail me for any corrections or comments.
