As far as I can tell, the verse just follows a simple arpeggio
chord progression (A,C,D,C,B,A,G,F). I don't know the actual
pattern, but you can try just about anything. Here's a simple
example. Let the bass notes ring throughout.

 AC
 Walking down.this.rocky road

B---------2-----------------5--------|
G-------2---2-------------5---5------|
D-----2-------2---------5-------5----|
A-0**-----------0---3**-----------3--|

D-----2-------2----------5---5------------3---3-------3---|
A-0**-----------0------5-------5--------3-------3-----3---|
E------------------3**-----------3---1**----------1---1---| Finding out along the way,what it take's to keep love living, you should know......how it feels my friend.uuuuuuuuh I want you to stay...uuuuuuuh I want you today. I'am ready for love repeat.ready for love
(2nd verse) Now I'am on my feet Again,better Things are bound to happen,all my due's..... surely most be paid....Many miles and many tears,times were hard but now there changing,you should know... that I'am not afraid..UUUUUUHH I want you to stay,I want you today... CHORUS
(Actually, that B chord may be a figment of my imagination,
but I like it in there!)

Pre-Chorus

 D
  Ooohhhhhh   Oooh
(I want you to stay)
E---------------------------------------------------|

B--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
G--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
D--7**------------7^^--------7**------------7^^-----|
A--5**------------5^^--------5**------------5^^-----|
E---------------------------------------------------|
My notation here is kinda strange. You should really smack
that D chord the first time and let it ring, then cut it off
the second time (staccato??) If you listen to the record
it'll be pretty self explanitory)
Play this 3 times, then, for the last time, play.....

 CD
 todayyyyy    ayyyyyyyy - you get the idea
E-------------------------|

B--5-------------7--------|
G--5-------------7--------|
D--5-------------7--------|
A--3-------------5--------|
E-------------------------|

Then on to the chorus, which is just G,A,C,D

 GAGA
 Ready for love           Oh baby I'm
E---------------------------------------------------|

B---------------------------------------------------|
G--4//6-----6-------6--------4//6-----6-------6-----|
D--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
A--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----|
E--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----|

 CDCD
 Ready for love         
E---------------------------------------------------|

B--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
G--5//7-----7-------7--------5//7-----7-------7-----|
D--5//7--7--7----7--7--------5//7--7--7----7--7-----|
A--3//5--5--5----5--5--------3//5--5--5----5--5-----|
E---------------------------------------------------|

At the end of the chorus is a decending riff, like the verse.
Try something like this:
 CBAGFG
                               
E-----------------------------------1----------3----|

B-----------------------------------1----------3----|
G-------0------0------0-------0-----2----------4----|
D------0------0------0-------0------3----------5----|
A--3**----2**----0**----------------3----------5----|
E------------------------3**--------1----------3----|

That's pretty much the song. I haven't compared it too closely
to the album, so I'm sure there are mistakes. But it sounds
good to me so it should at least provide a good start.
There's also plenty of room to improvise, especially during the
verses. Have fun and I hope someone makes use of this!
Please let me know if you have anything better
