Bat Out Of Hell

Meat Loaf

 EbFEbF
 (+Piano)            
 EbFEbF
VERSE 1:
 EbFBb
 The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling,
 F
Way down in the valley tonight.
 EbFAm
 There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye,
 Bb
And a blade shining oh so bright.
 FC
There's evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky,
Dm C Bb (Fill)
And a killer's on the bloodshot streets.
 FC
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising,
 DmBb/D
Oh I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter.
 Bb/DCBb/CCBb/C
He was starting to foam in the heat.              

BRIDGE 1:
 BbC
Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world,
 FBb
That's pure and good and right.
 BbC
And wherever you are and wherever you go,
 BbBb/CF
There's always gonna be some light.
 BbC
But I gotta get out, I gotta break it out now,
Dm Bb (Fill)
Before the final crack of dawn.
 FC
So we gotta make the most of our one night together.
 BbBbCBb/CCBb/CC
When it's over you know, we'll both be so alone.                 

CHORUS 1:
F Bb F (Fill)
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
 FAm
When the night is over, like a bat out of hell,
Bb Am Gm (Fill)
I'll be gone, gone, gone.
 FCBb
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
(Slower)
 BbCBb/DC/EFC
       But when the day is done and the sun goes down,
 BbBbF/AGm7F/ABbC
And moonlight's shining through.          

LINK 1:
(Calmer)
 FAm/EDmF/C
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven,
 BbBb/AGm7BbCBbC
I'll come crawling on back to you.                  

VERSE 2:
(A Tempo)
 FBb
I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram,
F (Fill)
On a silver black phantom bike.
 FAm
When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry,
Bb (Fill)
And we're all about to see the light.
 FC
 Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole,
Dm C Bb (Fill)
Everything is stunted and lost.
 FC
And nothing really rocks, and nothing really rolls,
 BbBb/CF
And nothing's ever worth the cost.

BRIDGE 2:
 BbCF
And I know that I'm damned if I never get out,
 BbCF
And maybe I'm damned if I do.
Bb C Dm (Fill)
But with every other beat I got left in my heart,
 BbCF
You know I'd rather be damned with you.
 FC
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned,
 BbCF
 Dancing through the night with you.
 FC
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
 FBb9
 Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
 FC
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
 BbC
 Dancing through the night,
 BbC
 Dancing through the night,
Bb C F F (Gliss.)
Dancing through the night with you.
