Intro:
-E Guitar-
Eb   F        Eb   F
-+Piano-
Eb   F        Eb   F

Verse:
Eb  F                            Bb
The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling,
    F
Way down in the valley tonight.
Eb        F                         Am
There's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye,
      Bb
And a blade shining oh so bright.     
        F                           C
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.
       F                            C
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising,
     Dm                      Bb  
Oh I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter.
       Bb                      C    Bb      C    Bb  
He was starting to foam in the heat.

Bridge:
   Bb                             C               
Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world, 
       F                 Bb
That's pure and good and right.
        Bb                   C
And wherever you are and wherever you go,
        Bb           Bb      F
There's always gonna be some light.
      Bb                     C
But I gotta get out, I gotta break it out now,
  Dm                      Bb -Fill-
Before the final crack of dawn.
      F                          C
So we gotta make the most of our one night together.
          Bb                   Bb         C    Bb      C Bb     C 
When it's over you know, we'll both be so alone.

Chorus:
       F                        Bb                    F -Fill-
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
         F                     Am 
When the night is over, like a bat out of hell,
        Bb    Am    Gm -Fill-
I'll be gone, gone, gone.
       F                        C                     Bb   
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
                  -Slower-
Bb C Bb   C        F                   C
      But when the day is done and the sun goes down,
    Bb         Bb  F    Gm7   F     Bb   C
And moonlight's shining through.

Interlude:
-Calmer-
            F        Am       Dm       F  
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven,
          Bb          Bb      Gm7      Bb C     Bb C
I'll come crawling on back to you.

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

Bridge:
      Bb            C           F
And I know that I'm damned if I never get out,
    Bb        C           F
And maybe I'm damned if I do.
         Bb          C          Dm -Fill-
But with every other beat I got left in my heart,
             Bb        C           F
You know I'd rather be damned with you.
     F                          C
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned,
Bb                  C          F
Dancing through the night with you.
     F                          C
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
F                          Bb9
Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
     F                          C            
If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned.
Bb                  C
Dancing through the night,
Bb                  C
Dancing through the night,
Bb                  C          F      F  -Gliss.-
Dancing through the night with you.

That's pure and good and right.

Chorus:
       F                        Bb                    F -Fill-
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
         F                     Am 
When the night is over, like a bat out of hell,
        Bb    Am    Gm -Fill-
I'll be gone, gone, gone.
       F                        C                     Bb   
Like a bat out of hell, I'll be gone when the morning comes.
