During these trying times, Jon Bon Jovi wants fans to try their hands at songwriting. This past weekend, the rocker asked fans in a YouTube video to contribute lyrics to a song he's working on about the coronavirus pandemic titled "Do What You Can."

 

"I did what I do best, which is to sit down with my guitar and try to put something to words, for you, maybe to brighten up your day.

 

Here's my idea: We're gonna write this one together," Bon Jovi said. "I'm gonna give you the chorus; I'm gonna give you the first verse. I'm gonna play the second verse, but you tell me your story.

Tell me what you're going through. Tell me how you're feeling."

 

He then played the start of the song, which opens with the words, "Tonight they're shutting down the borders and they boarded up the schools / Small towns are rolling up their sidewalks, one last paycheck coming through."

Fans can submit their lyrics in the video's comments, or use the hashtag "#DoWhatYouCan."
