Intro -x2-: Eb Bb Ab Bb Ab

Verse:
Eb          Bb
You walked in
             Ab               Bb
Everyone was asking for your name
Eb        Bb
You just smiled
              Ab
And told them Trouble
Eb       Bb
My head spins
Ab                    
I'm pressed against the wall
                   Eb
Just watching your every move
       Bb
You're way too cool
           Ab
And you're coming this way -coming this way-

Chorus:
                  Eb              Bb
How did we end up talking in the first place
    Ab
You said you liked my Cobain shirt
          Eb               Bb
Now we're walking back to your place
       Ab                                       Eb             Bb
You're telling me how you love that song about living on a prayer
    Ab                      
I'm pretty sure that we're halfway there
           Eb               Ab
But when I wake up next to you
         Bb
I wonder how
                  Eb
How did we end up here

Interlude: Bb Ab Bb Ab

Verse:
Eb          Bb
Let's stay out
Ab                          
Everybody thought you were so insane
               Eb      Bb         Ab
Cause you were so far out of my league
                        Eb        Bb
My friends say I should lock you down
           Ab
Before you figure me out and you run away
        Eb
But you don't and you won't
       Bb                              Ab
As you kiss me and you tell me you're here to stay

Chorus:
                  Eb              Bb
How did we end up talking in the first place
    Ab
You said you liked my Cobain shirt
          Eb               Bb
Now we're walking back to your place
       Ab                                       Eb             Bb
You're telling me how you love that song about living on a prayer
    Ab                      
I'm pretty sure that we're halfway there
           Eb               Ab
But when I wake up next to you
         Bb
I wonder how
                  Eb
How did we end up here

Bridge:
        Bb                   Ab
Call me lucky 'cause in the end
      Bb             Ab
I'm a 6 and she's a 10
         Eb           Ab
She's so fit I'm insecure
              Bb               Ab
But she keeps coming back for more

Chorus:
                  Eb              Bb
How did we end up talking in the first place
    Ab
You said you liked my Cobain shirt
          Eb               Bb
Now we're walking back to your place
       Ab                                       Eb             Bb
You're telling me how you love that song about living on a prayer
    Ab                      
I'm pretty sure that we're halfway there
           Eb               Ab
But when I wake up next to you
         Bb
I wonder how
                  Eb
How did we end up here

Outro: Bb Ab

                   Bb                 Eb

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
