Meatloaf - Bat out of hell

 Notes:
 Capo on I , its needed because there is a jump from D#  to F thats quite
hard so I translated it.
 This also makes it quite easy to play, but try it with out if can sing it
in that key.
 
 The Instrumental parts where quite hard to work out and I am not sure if
they are total correct but the sound ok
 played acoustically.  I havent done any tab for the solos but if you wany
you can add the tab to this document,
 but please leave the information above. Also please send me a copy of the
finished tab if you can I would be
 grateful.
 This song was transcribed on Easter Friday 1998
 
 I must also thank you to Alex Pfaffinger, whose Heaven can wait song also
in the archive challenged me to
 transcribe this. Its brilliant download it now.
 
 I might work out the intro for this but I havent got any time at the moment
to do it.
 
  :) Well Enjoy I hope its accurate I havent performed it yet.

Long intro insert here


[Verse]
E      A    D -  E          A        D - E      A
D - E                                             A
    The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling
          E
    Way down in the valley tonight
D - E                                   B
    Theres a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
          A
    And a blade shining oh so bright
            E                           B
    Theres evil in the air and theres thunder in the sky
           C#m                      A
    And a killers on the bloodshot streets
           E                            B
    Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
       A
    Oh I swear I saw a young boy,    Down in the gutter
           A                       B    A      B  (piano climb)
    He was starting to foam in the heat


[Pre-Chorus]
       A                                  B
    Oh Baby youre the only thing in this whole world
           E                 A
    Thats pure and good and right
        A                    B
    And wherever you are and wherever you go
            A                    E
    Theres always gonna be some light
          A                      B
    But I gotta get out, I gotta break it out now
           C#m                A  (piano climb)
    Before the final crack of dawn

           E                         B
    So we gotta make the most of our one night together
              A
    When its over you know
                     B     A    B   A
    Well both be so alone

    E
    Like a bat out of hell
            A                      E
    Ill be gone when the morning comes
    E
    When the night is over
           G#m                     A     F#m   A
    Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone gone gone
    E                              B                     A
    Like a bat out of hell Ill be gone when the morning comes
                 E
    But when the day is done
            B
    And the sun goes down
            A                   B      G#m.. A.. F#m.. A.. B..
    And the moonlights shining through
                E      G#m        C#m      E
    Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
              A           F#m   C#   A       F#m
    Ill come crawling on back to you

[Verse]
        E                            A
    Im gonna hit the highway like a battering ram
         E
    On a silver black phantom bike
             E                    G#
    When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry
             A
    And were all about to see the light
    E                          B
    Nothing ever grows in this rotting old hole
    C#m                       A
    Everything is stunted and lost
        E                         B
    And nothing really rocks, And nothing really rocks
         A                       E
    And nothings ever worth the cost

           A            B                     E
    And I know that Im damned if I never got out
       A          B           E
    And maybe Im damned if I do
        A                B                  C#m...
    But with every other beat I got left in my heart
                 A         B           E
    You know Id rather be damned with you
               E                       B
    Well if I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    A                   B          E
    Dancing through the night with you
            E                            B
    Well if I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
            E                  A
    Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
             E                 B
    Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned
    A
    Dancing through the night, Dancing through the night
    B                              E
    Dancing through the night with you

[Bridge]
                 A
    Oh I can see myself tearing up the road
                                       E
    Faster than any other boy has ever gone
            A
    And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

    No ones gonna stop me now
                     E
    I gotta make my escape,
          C     D                E
    But I cant stop thinking of you
    G                          D                        E
    And I never see the sudden curve until its way too late

    E                B,         A       B x3

    G                           D                       E
    Well I never see the sudden curve till its way too late

             D                        E                  F#m
    Then Im dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
    D                        E                 F#m
    Torn and twisted and the foot of a burning bike
          G                  A                       Bm
    And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
            D            E         F#m         G7      A
    And the last thing I see is my heart still beating
     F#                           B
    Breaking out of my body , And flying away
                      E
    Like a bat out of hell
             G                        A                  Bm
    Then Im dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun
    G                       A                 Bm
    Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike
         D                   E                       F#m
    And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
    G                    A         Bm          C
    And the last thing I see is my heart still beating

    Still beating, Still beating
    F#                          B
    Breaking out of my body and flying away
                      E  E      D       A
    Like a bat out of hell
                      E  E      D       A
    Like a bat out of hell

    Like a bat out of hell

The chords alone are no good. You need the solos and the begining of the song.
