Never Say Goodbye  Bon Jovi

 this is my version of Bon Jovis 'Never say goodbye' from the 'Slippery when wet' album 1986. Actually it is the 'unplugged' version from one of these many Live CDs and it is in the wrong key too:-), because it easyer to sing. The correct key would be one step higher. Just change G -> A, bm -> c#m, F -> G and so on.In the intro you have to add 2 to every fret number. If you have the possibility sing it as a duet in the chorus (listen to the live CD) it is quite beautiful and not that type of heavy-standard-ballad as it is on the studio LP. 

Never say goodbye (J.B.Jovi & R.Sambora)

Verse 2
Remember days of skipping school, racing cars and being cool,
With a six pack and a radio, we didn't need no place to go
Remember at the prom that night, you and me we had a fight,
But the band they played our favorite song and I held you in my arms so strong
We'd guess you'd say we used to talk about busting out we'd break their hearts
Solo G bm C Eb - F G bm C Eb - F
[G]Oh I guess you'd say we used to talk abo[bm]ut busting out we'd break their hearts
[End]G bm C Eb6 - F G bm C cm G
