Note: Tune Guitar down one full step (Standard D Tuning)

(Verse)
     DM  D          DSUS4  D  C 
It's all the same             only the names will 
G
change 
   C        G              F         D
And everyday it seems we're wasting a-way
  DM   D       DSUS4  D            C             G
Another place            where the faces are so

cold
  C         G             F        D
I drive all night just to get back home

(Chorus)
      C      G    F             D
I'm a cowboy on a steel horse I ride
   C      G        F D
I'm wanted dead or a-live
C      G       F D
Wanted dead or a-live

(Verse)
Sometimes I sleep sometimes is not for days
And people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day by the bottle that you drink
And times when all you do is think

(CHORUS)


SOLO: D C G C G | G F D | D C G C G | G F D

(Bridge)
             C      G    F             D
Oh and I'm a cowboy on a steel horse I ride
    C       G               F D
I'm wanted, wanted, dead or a-live

VERSE 3: 
And I walk these streets a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back
I been every where still I'm standig tall
I've seen a million faces and I've rock them all

(CHORUS)

Not a corection really, but to really emphasise when he
says "Dead - or - alive", instead of a strait F then D, try going:
Dead or a - live
1-----1-----1-----2
1-----1-----1-----3
0-----2-----2-----2
0-----0-----3-----0
3-----3-----3-----0
1-----1-----1-----x

Progressivly making the F more complete really boosts the lyrics.

This is definitely Bon Jovi - did MG record a version of it somewhere?

Maybe Try This...
D,Cadd9,G,Cadd9,G,F,D.
In Standard Tuning..Just a Thought..
This is How I usally Play It..
I play it from Bon Jovis Recording,
So it might be Different Than Montgomery Gentrys Version.

1986 by bon jovi... i think it was for one of those "young guns" movies... (1 or 2)
-Demon646 | 6/7/2004
tatto, your 100 percent right ive played this live for years and thats how you play it brother
-ronbo | 8/9/2004
it was originally on the "slippery when wet"
album then i think it was added to the young guns soundtrack
-huntercp | 8/16/2004
It has also been on Bon Jovi's Cross roads album along with on there live album and was remaid for there This Left Feels Right Album.
-pyrojohn916 | 8/21/2004
This was NOT in a "Young Guns" movie. The Bon Jovi song you are thinking of is "Blaze of Glory" which in many ways is similar to this song. And I also play in standard tuning using a Cadd9 instead of a C because it is more like Bon Jovi's and Chris Cagle's versions.
