[Intro]
D   D7  G  Gm/Bb      
D   A7  D  D  
[Verse 1]
       D         
It's a hard life 
        D7    
getting by on 
G            D
melodies and rhymes,
     D    
like all my heroes 
D  
wrote in 
      A       A
their songs.
     D     
Just hoping some 
D7 
day they might 
G         Gm/Bb
ask me to play:
        D    
what do you do 
when your 
A7         D     D
heroes are gone?
[Chorus]
        D
Lord, I try to 
live 
C         G  
up to the songs 
            D
they left behind,
      D   
but I don't 
always 
D 
know how to 
      A    A
carry on.
        D    
It's so hard to 
find 
     C          
your way when a 
G            Gm/Bb
flame fades away.
            D 
What do you do 
when your 
A          D     D
heroes are gone?

[Interlude]
D   D7  G  Gm/Bb 
D   A7  D  D      
[Verse 2]
            D  
So, pour me one 
more for 
    D7       
the courts and 
  G             
another for the 
D
burbs
          D    
while the jukebox 
just 
      D    
keeps rolling 
 A      A
along.
    D     
And when the last 
    D7  
one ends 
we'll play them 
    G     Gm/Bb
all over again
            D   
'cause what do you 
do when your 
A7         D     D
heroes are gone.
[Chorus]
        D   
Lord, I try 
to live 
C 
up to the 
G               
songs they left 
  D
behind,
      D      
but I don't always 
D 
know how 
         A    A
to carry on.
        D   
It's so hard to 
find your 
C
way when another 
G            Gm/Bb
flame fades away.
            D 
What do you do 
when your 
A          D     D
heroes are gone?
[Ending]
              D    
Yeah, it's so hard 
to find 
     C     
your way when a 
G            Gm/Bb
flame fades away.
            D  
What do you do 
when your 
A         (G)
heroes are gone?
G  Gm   D
