This is my first tab! But as far as I can hear, this is correct!

THIS is the tuning. No capo fret 5, nor 1 nor WHATEVER ELSE. There’s a clear C# 
base note throughout the song! Yes, it’s a little annoying tuning, but this is how 
you do the real deal.

In the Intro, Guitar 1 would be playing the “Intro Riff” and Guitar 2 plays the 
chords- Also, when Guitar 2 starts playing on the “G”s in the intro, it strums it 
once then hits the harmonics on the base strings on fret 5 then continues 
strumming. Listen to the song well to get what I mean.

(For a lack of knowledge of these Chord names, I simplified them to their base 
note representation)

Also, there's a heavy emphasis on the base notes of each chord, so if you want to 
even ignore the last ones it'll still sound fine)

[Verse]
G D Where have all the good men gone And where are all the gods?
G A Where's the street-wise Hercules To fight the rising odds?
G D Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
G D#(HOLD) Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
[Chorus]
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
Bm G D A*He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
Bm G D A*He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life
larger than life- [Interlude]
Bm G D A*Da da da da da da da da, da da da da da da
Bm G D A*Da da da da da da da da, da da da da da da
[Verse]
G D Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasy
G D Somewhere just beyond my reach there's someone reaching back for me
G A Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
G D# (HOLD) isn’t there a superman to sweep me off my feet
[Chorus]
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
Bm G D A*He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
Bm G D A*He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life
[Bridge]
D# GUp where the mountains meet the heavens above, out where the lightning splits the sea
D# A*(HOLD)I could swear that there's someone somewhere, watching me
D# GThrough the wind and the chill and the rain, and the storm and the flood
D# A*(HOLD)I can feel his approach like the fire in my blood
[Chorus]
Bm G D A*I need a hero- and then we’ll dance till the morning light
Bm G D A*Dreaming He’ll lead me, held tight, tonight’s the night
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
Bm G D A*He's gotta be strong, he's gotta be fast and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
Bm G D A*I need a hero- I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
Bm G D A*He's gotta be sure, he's gotta be soon and he's gotta be larger than life
larger than life
Bm G D A*Da da da da da da da da, da da da da da da
