Ill Be There For You Acoustic Chords

   
I’ll Be There For You (Acoustic)
Performed by Bon Jovi
Written By Jon Bon Jovi & Richie Sambora
From New Jersey (1988)
Tabbed by Hummeroo (hummeroo83@yahoo.com)

	This is the acoustic version of I’ll Be There For You which is the only 
one that’s correct. All the other ones using Dminor and F are wrong. Also, upstroke 
the first and third Em of every verse for a more similar sound to the real acoustic 
performances, and stop strumming when it says *STOP*. 
        Enjoy!

Chords:	Em	022000
	G	x20033
	D	xx0232
	Bm	x24432
	A	x02220
        C       x32010

Verse 1:
                                   Em       G
I guess this time you're really leaving 
                             D            D
I heard your suitcase say goodbye 
                               Em         G
And as my broken heart lies bleeding 
                        D            *STOP*
You say true love is suicide 
                                  Em        G
You say you've cried a thousand rivers 
                                 D        Bm
And now you're swimming for the shore 
                            Em        G
You left me drowning in my tears  
                         D             *STOP*
And you won't save me anymore 
                                                           D      
I'm praying to God you'll give me one more chance, girl 

Chorus:
           
I'll be there for you 
 Bm
These five words I swear to you 
           G
When you breathe I want to be the air for you 
A         C    G   D
I'll be there for you 
                              Bm
I'd live and I'd die for you 

Steal the sun from the sky for you 
  G
Words can't say what love can do 
A         C    G  *RIFF #1*
I'll be there for you

*RIFF #1*

Verse 2:
I know you know we've had some good times 
Now they have their own hiding place 
I can promise you tomorrow 
But I can't buy back yesterday 

And Baby you know my hands are dirty 
But I wanted to be your valentine 
I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby 
When you get drunk, I'll be the wine 

Chorus
Solo: Play Chorus Chords Twice

Verse 3:
                                   Em         G
And I wasn't there when you were happy    
                             D  Bm
I wasn't there when you were down 
                             Em               G
I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby 
                                        D        *Scream*
I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out 

Chorus
