Bon Jovi - Bed Of Roses: chords

 A#
Sitting here wasted and wounded
           F
This old piano
        A#
Trying hard to capture the moment
                F
This morning I don't know
          Am                       A#
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
           F
And some blond gave me nightmares
                         A#
Think she's still in my bed
                              C                         F
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up and
French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps its own beat in my head
While we're talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and
What you mean to me
And the truth is baby you're all that I need.

Chorus:
         Dm
I wanna lay
     C         A#     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm
For tonight
    C         A#     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               A#
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     A#    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   A#
And lay you down
             F
On a bed of roses

Well I'm so far away
That each step that I take is on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes I'd given each night
Just to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time
Or it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes and whisper
Baby, blind love is true

Chorus

            A#
Well, this hotel bar hangover
  C                         F
Whiskey's gone dry, the barkeeper's wig's crooked
And she's giving me the eye
   A#
I might have said yeah
                      C          F   C/E
But I laughed so hard I think I died, uh yeah!

Now as you close your eyes
Know I'll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonight, I won't be alone
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
I've got nothing to prove
For it's you that I'd die to defend

Chorus:
I want to lay
you down in a bed of roses
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
Oh I want to be
just as close as
the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on...

I want to lay
you down in a bed of roses
For tonight
I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be
just as close as
the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down
On a bed of roses
