Bat Out of Hell  Meat Loaf

BAT OUT OF HELL - MEAT LOAF
INTRO:
(E Guitar)
[Eb](+Pia[F]no)[Eb] [F]
[Eb] [F] [Eb] [F]  
VERSE 1:
[Eb]The [F]sirens are screaming and the [Bb]fires are howling,
Way [F]down in the valley tonight.
[Eb]There's a [F]man in the shadows with a [Am]gun in his eye,
And a [Bb]blade shining oh so bright.
There's [F]evil in the air and there's [C]thunder in the sky,
Dm C Bb (Fill)
And a killer's on the bloodshot streets.
Oh and [F]down in the tunnel where the [C]deadly are rising,
Oh I [Dm]swear I saw a young boy [Bb/D]down in the gutter.
He was [Bb/D]starting to foam in the [C]heat.[Bb/C] [C] [Bb/C]
BRIDGE 1:
Oh [Bb]Baby, you're the only thing in [C]this whole world,
That's [F]pure and good and [Bb]right.
And wher[Bb]ever you are and wher[C]ever you go,
There's [Bb]always gonna [Bb/C]be some [F]light.
But I [Bb]gotta get out, I gotta [C]break it out now,
Dm Bb (Fill)
Before the final crack of dawn.
So we [F]gotta make the most of our [C]one night together.
When it's [Bb]over you know, we'll [Bb]both be so [C]alone[Bb/C].[C] [Bb/C] [C]
CHORUS 1:
F Bb F (Fill)
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
When the [F]night is over, like a [Am]bat out of hell,
Bb Am Gm (Fill)
I'll be gone, gone, gone.
Like a [F]bat out of hell, I'll be [C]gone when the morning [Bb]comes.
(Slower)
[Bb] [C] [Bb/D] But [C/E]when the [F]day is done and the [C]sun goes down,
And [Bb]moonlight's[Bb] shi[F/A]ning [Gm7]throug[F/A]h.[Bb] [C]
LINK 1:
(Calmer)
Then like a [F]sinner be[Am/E]fore the [Dm]gates of [F/C]heaven,
I'll come [Bb]crawling on [Bb/A]back to [Gm7]you.[Bb] [C] [Bb] [C]
VERSE 2:
(A Tempo)
I'm [F]gonna hit the highway like a [Bb]battering ram,
F (Fill)
On a silver black phantom bike.
When the [F]metal is hot and the [Am]engine is hungry,
Bb (Fill)
And we're all about to see the light.
[F]Nothing ever grows in this [C]rotting old hole,
Dm C Bb (Fill)
Everything is stunted and lost.
And [F]nothing really rocks, and [C]nothing really rolls,
And [Bb]nothing's ever [Bb/C]worth the [F]cost.
BRIDGE 2:
And I [Bb]know that I'm [C]damned if I [F]never get out,
And [Bb]maybe I'm [C]damned if I [F]do.
Bb C Dm (Fill)
But with every other beat I got left in my heart,
You know I'd [Bb]rather be [C]damned with [F]you.
If I [F]gotta be damned you know I [C]wanna be damned,
[Bb]Dancing through the [C]night with [F]you.
If I [F]gotta be damned you know I [C]wanna be damned.
[F]Gotta be damned you know I [Bb9]wanna be damned.
If I [F]gotta be damned you know I [C]wanna be damned.
[Bb]Dancing through the [C]night,
[Bb]Dancing through the [C]night,
Bb C F F (Gliss.)
Dancing through the night with you.
