Bon Jovi - Joey: chords

F
Joey Keys was from my neighborhood
C
Some would say that he was bad and
Dm
Joe thought that was good
A#                                F   A# F
Joey got the name "Keys" picking locks

    Gm           Am
He never really robbed no one
    A#
it sure amused the cops
 F
Joey's parents owned a restaurant
        C                                Dm
After closing time they'd give us almost anything we'd want
   A#                              F  A# F
I never cared that Joey Keys was slow

           Gm               Am
Though he couldn't read or write too well
     A#
but we'd talk all night long

 F
Come on, come on, come on
               A#
What you gonna do with your life?
    Gm
Oh, Come on, come on, come on
         A#
Chasing sparks in the nights
    F
His old man said tomorrow
     A#
is a ride that goes nowhere
          Gm                     Am
But I'll pull some strings, get blackbird wings
     A#
And break us out of there

Chorus:
 C
Hey Joey
       Dm
C'mon tell me 'bout your dreams
                 A#
Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
         Gm
Tell me who you're gonna be
 C/E
Hey Joey
              Dm
You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
                      Gm
Sometimes you got to stand and fight
      Am        A#
It'll be alright

We're gonna find
          F Dsus2 C
a better life

See Joe was 3 years younger to the day
Acting like a little brother
but became my ball and chain
I met this girl named Rhonda
she fell for me
She said, "I might learn to like him
but love ain't built for three"

Chorus

     C Dm A# Gm C Dm Gm Am A#
Hey Joe

      D#                                 A#
News gets around in this fading neighborhood
    F
The old man lost the restaurant
He drinks more than he should
      D#                            A#
It's time for Joey keys to do some good
          Gm
Pick the lock off our lives
           Am                 A#
let's get out of here like we always said we would

Chorus:
 C
Hey Joey
       Dm
C'mon tell me 'bout your dreams
                 A#
Tell me all the sights you're gonna see
         Gm
Tell me who you're gonna be
 C/E
Hey Joey
              Dm
You're gonna kiss the girls goodnight
                      Gm
Sometimes you got to stand and fight
      Am        A#
It'll be alright

We're gonna find
          F A#
a better life
               F  A#
Find a better life
               F  A# Gm  C
Find a better life

 F
Come on, come on, come on
What you gonna do with your life?
     Gm
Oh, Come on, come on, come on
          C
Chasing sparks in the nights

         F
Tell the old man it's tomorrow
we're off to find somewhere
  Gm
I pulled some strings, got blackbird wings
      C                 F
And broke us out of here.
