* 28-bar break
(spoken) Once upon a time, Not so long ago.

* Verse 1 Tommy used to work on the dock.
The union's been on strike.
He's down on his luck, it's tough, so tough.
Gina works the diner all day,
Working for her man,
She brings home her pay
For love, For love, She says

* Pre- We gotta hold on to what we've got.
chorus It dosen't make a difference if we make it or not.
We got each other, and that's a lot for love.
We'll give it a shot.

* Chorus Oh we're halfway there, Oh oh, livin' on a prayer.
Take my hand, we'll make it, I swear.
Oh oh, livin' on a prayer.

* 2-bar break
* Verse 2 Tommy's got his six-string in hock.
Now he's holding in,
When he used to make it talk so tough, It's tough.
Gina dreams of running away.
When she cries in the night,
Tommy whispers, "Baby, it's okay, someday."

* (Repeat pre-chorus)
* (Repeat chorus)

Livin' on a prayer.

* 9-bar guitar solo

We gotta hold on, ready or not.
You live for the fight when that's all that you got.

* (Repeat chorus 4 times)
