[Intro]

G      D     Am    C
G      D     Am    C


[Verse]

            G
There was a sheet metal moon

The night that Jimmy lost his life
C               D          G
Swimming in the carburetor lines
       G
He was last seen kissing

The rings of the pistons
    C                 D             G
And drinking with the gears as they grind


[Chorus]

C
Saturday night
        G
And the sheet metal moon
      D
Plays tricks with my eyes
      C
As it burns through the fumes
    C
The sheet metal moon shines
     G
We'd better take a ride
D
Out to the bridge
         C
Where we used to get high


[Verse]

    G
The skinny kid said

Jimmy couldn't be dead
             C
He just went out to get
     D                  G
Some speed and kill the pain
G
Crossing double lines

And shutting down his headlights
    C              D        G
And passing in the oncoming lanes


[Chorus]

C
Saturday night
        G
And the sheet metal moon
      D
Plays tricks with my eyes
      C
As it burns through the fumes
    C
The sheet metal moon shines
     G
We'd better take a ride
D
Out to the bridge
         C
Where we used to get high


[Bridge]

          G              D         
But there seems to be no sign
       Am              C
As the timing chain is throwing links
    G           D
And not keeping time
       Am          C
As the manifold is gasping as
    G           D
The rocker arms wave goodbye
     Am
From under the bridge
      C             G      D     Am    C
Where everybody got high
G      D     Am    C
High


[Verse]

        G
And the black line you struck

And kid, it's just your luck
   C              D             G
It looks like you crippled your frame
    G
The wells won't hold

And the bolts all broke
        C
And the shards of glass
    D                G
Are swimming in your brain


[Chorus]

C
Saturday night
        G
And the sheet metal moon
D
Lights up the road
     C
As I drive to the tune
    C
The sheet metal moon and I
    G
Are riding alone
D
Out to the bridge
         C
Where we used to get stoned

C
Saturday night
        G
And the sheet metal moon
   D
Is still playing tricks
     C
As I walk through the rooms
  C
I drank all the fuel
     G
As I breathe in the fumes
       D
Out on West Adams Road
            C
When I went looking for you

C
Saturday night
        G
And the sheet metal moon
      D
Plays tricks with my eyes
      C
As it burns through the fumes
    C
The sheet metal moon shines
     G
We'd better take a ride
D
Out to the bridge
         C
Where we used to get high


[Bridge]

          G              D         
But there seems to be no sign
       Am              C
As the timing chain is throwing links
    G           D
And not keeping time
       Am          C
As the manifold is gasping as
    G           D
The rocker arms wave goodbye
     Am
From under the bridge
      C             G      D     Am    C
Where everybody got high
G      D     Am    C
High
G      D     Am    C     G
