SATURDAY NIGHT'S ALRIGHT FOR FIGHTING – ELTON JOHN


[Intro]
G/D         F/C     G  F/G  G  F/G
G/D         F/C     G  F/G  G  F/G


[Verse]
     G
It's getting late have you seen my mates
   F
Ma tell me when the boys get here
     C
It's seven o'clock and I want to rock
        G
Want to get a belly full of beer
   G
My old man's drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
       F
And my old lady she don't care
   C
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
  G
A handful of grease in her hair
Dm7         ↓Gliss…
Ohhhhhhh


[Chorus]
C
 Don't give us none of your aggravation
   Bb
We had it with your discipline
F
Saturday night's alright for fighting
C
Get a little action in
C
Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Bb
Gonna set this dance alight
       F
`Cause Saturday night's the night I like
C
Saturday night's alright 
C/E  C/F   C/F#   G      G/F-E

Oooooo    oo-oo  ooh

G           Dm    F
G           Dm    F


[Verse]
             G
Well they're packed pretty tight in here tonight
    F
I'm looking for a dolly who'll see me right
      C
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
      G
I may sink a little drink and shout out "She's with me!"
  G
A couple of the sounds that I really like
        F
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
      C
I'm a juvenile product of the working class
      G
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass
Dm7         ↓Gliss…
Ohhhhhhh


[Chorus]
C
 Don't give us none of your aggravation
   Bb
We had it with your discipline
F
Saturday night's alright for fighting
C
Get a little action in
C
Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Bb
Gonna set this dance alight
       F
`Cause Saturday night's the night I like
C
Saturday night's alright 
C/E  C/F   C/F#   G      G/F-E  
Al - right al - right   
Cm7/Eb    Dm7b5  C
Oooooo    oo-oo  ooh

 Don't give us none of your aggravation
   Bb
We had it with your discipline

Saturday night's alright for fighting

Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Bb
Gonna set this dance alight
       F
`Cause Saturday night's the night I like

Saturday night's alright

Last part, try C-Csus4 Bb-Bbsus4 F-Fsus4 C-Csus4 as the outro. Actually, it's the intro also. At least, that's how I play it. Chacun a son gout!

Allow me to amend my last comment - the major alternating with the sus4 goes for the G-F-C-G pattern in the intro. My bad!
