Learn to Play I'll Be There For You

This #1 chartbuster is the second single from Bon Jovi's album New Jersey to reach the top spot. When Jon Bon Jovi's family moved to another area of New Jersey (their home state), he arranged to have the house given away in a raffle. The winners were a young family from nearby Pennsylvania.

So, it's an easy song to play with some simple chords and I especially like the chorus.

 D                               Em  
I guess this time you're really leaving
G                              D 
I heard your suitcase say goodbye

Well as my broken heart lies bleeding 
G                          D

You say you've cried a thousand rivers
G                        D   
And now you're swimming for the shore 
                           Em
You left me drowning in my tears 
G                         A7

I pray to God you'll give me one more chance, girl
