Fear  Bon Jovi

[----]by Jon Bon Jovi
from the album "Keep The Faith" (1992)

Pretty heavy for a Bon Jovi-song. I was amazed the first time I heard this.
Guitar plays mainly power chords, except for the chorus and the jingles
in the 2nd verse. No guitar solo! Not usual in Bon Jovi. When you're
playing F#m in the verses damp it strongly and let the A and E smack
you in the face!
Bass riff:
[F#m]  
 
 e|---------------------------------|
 B|---------------------------------|
 G|---------------------------------|
 D|---------------------------------|
 A|--------4-2------------4-2-2-----|
 E|-2--4-5------5--2--4-5-------5---|

Verse:

Bridge:

Bass riff + guitar plays this:

Repeat 4 times
Verse 2:

Fear
[----](Jon Bon Jovi)
I see you looking over your shoulder
Tell me who do you think's out there
You're reaching for your four leaf clover
But baby there ain't no luck down here
I swear that there's no heart in this city
It's here the slogan reads "Do your time"
Everybody's doing their sentence
It's just there ain't nobody here who knows just what's the crime
I watched my father live a lie here
I'd rather die than fade away
I read the rules and yeah, I know them
You ain't never gonna make me play the game of
Fear
Fear
Fear
Of a new thing
Running with the rats in this city
Makes you feel like you're a partner in crime
Girl, once you were young and pretty
Now you won't stop to watch
That little girl did
Hey baby, won't you stop and hear me
Just being here we're breathing heart attacks
We can run, chase the setting sun
We can run and we won't ever look back
Take my hand I know we'll make it
I'll let nothing slow us down
I know you wanna curse this place
But there's only one thing stopping us now it's
Fear
Fear
Fear
Of a new thing
Fear
Fear
Fear
Of a brass ring
You ain't one for taking chances
You work and you live and you breathe that 9 to 5
Still that's what you call living
Man, that's surviving to me
And surviving is living to die in
Fear
