(Eb) F Bb/F The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
F Way down in the valley tonight
Eb F AmThere's a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
BbAnd a blade shining oh so bright
F CThere's evil in the air and there's thunder in the sky
Dm C BbAnd a killer's on the bloodshot streets
F COh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
DmOh I swear I saw a young boy
Bb/D C | Bb/C | C |Down in the gutter, he was starting to foam in the heat
Pre-Chorus:
Bb C Oh Baby, you're the only thing in this whole world
F BbThat's pure and good and right
CAnd wherever you are and wherever you go
Bb C FThere's always gonna be some light
BbBut I gotta get out
CI gotta break it out now
Dm BbBefore the final crack of dawn
F CSo we gotta make the most of our one night together
BbWhen it's over you know
C | Bb/C | C | / ||We'll both be so alone
Chorus:
F Like a bat out of hell
Bb F | / |I'll be gone when the morning comes
FWhen the night is over
Am Bb Am Gm | / |Like a bat out of hell I'll be gone gone gone
FLike a bat out of hell
C Bb | Bb C I'll be gone when the morning comes
Dm C/E F But when the day is done
CAnd the sun goes down
Bb Dm/A Bb/G Bb/F Gm Am Bb | CAnd moonlight's shin-ing through
(C) F Am/E Dm F/CThen like a sinner before the gates of heaven
Bb Gm/A Gm7 | / | Bb/D / C/E / | Bb/D / C/E |I'll come crawling on back to you
F BbI'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
FOn a silver black phantom bike
F AmWhen the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
BbAnd we're all about to see the light
F CNothing ever grows in this rotting old hole and
Dm BbEverything is stunted and lost
F And nothing really rocks
CAnd nothing really rolls
Bb C FAnd nothing's ever worth the cost
Bb C FAnd I know that I'm damned if I never get out
Bb C FAnd maybe I'm damned if I do
Bb C DmBut with every other beat I got left in my heart
C Bb C FYou know I'd rather be damned with you
F CIf I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Bb C FDancing through the night with you
CIf I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
F BbGotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
F C If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
Bb CDancing through the night
Bb CDancing through the night
Bb C FDancing through the night with you
