Am
Where have all the good men gone
    G
And where are all the gods?
Am
Where's the street-wise Hercules
    C
To fight the rising odds?
Am                           G
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
 F                                   G
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
            - G let ring-
of what I need

Chorus:
         Am        F
I need a hero
                      C                        G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Am
He's gotta be strong
                 F
And he's gotta be fast
        C                       G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am      F
I need a hero
                   C                         G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C             G -Let Ring-
And he's gotta be larger than life

larger then life


Am  F  C  G -x2-
Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do do do do do


Am
Somewhere after midnight
      F
In my wildest fantasy
Am
Somewhere just beyond my reach
        G
There's someone reaching back for me
Am                        G
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
F                                          - C -
Isn't there a superman to sweep me off my feet?

Chorus:
  Am        F
I need a hero
                      C                        G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Am
He's gotta be strong
                 F
And he's gotta be fast
        C                       G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am      F
I need a hero
                   C                         G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C             G -Let Ring-
And he's gotta be larger than life

larger then life

- F / Am -
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
G
Out where the lightning splits the sea
   Am
I could swear that there's someone, somewhere
C        -Am -
Watching me
F
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
G
And the storm and the raging flood
C              G
I can feel his approach
        C           G
just Like the fire in my blood

          Am
Ill meet a hero
    F          C                  G
And then we'll dance till morning light
          C
Dreaming he'll leave me,
      F                  G
He'll die tonight's the night

Chorus:
  Am        F
I need a hero
                      C                        G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
              Am
He's gotta be strong
                 F
And he's gotta be fast
        C                       G
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
        Am      F
I need a hero
                   C                         G
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
              Am
He's gotta be sure
                  F
And it's gotta be soon
                C             G -Let Ring-
And he's gotta be larger than life

larger then life.

    What is the strumming pattern?

  2. Yeah theyre definitely the words pls can this be fixed

  3. Right before the last chorus, the lyrics should be {” I’ll meet a hero, and then well dance till the morning light dreaming he’ll lead me, held tight tonight’s the night”} not “dreaming he’ll leave me he’ll die tonight’s the night’m
