BAT OUT OF HELL - MEAT LOAF

INTRO:
(E Guitar)
Eb   F        Eb   F
(+Piano)
Eb   F        Eb   F

VERSE 1:
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/D
Oh I swear I saw a young boy down in the gutter.
       Bb/D                    C    Bb/C    C    Bb/C
He was starting to foam in the heat.

BRIDGE 1:
   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/C    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    C Bb/C   C 
When it's over you know, we'll both be so alone.

CHORUS 1:
       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/D C/E      F                   C
      But when the day is done and the sun goes down,
    Bb         Bb  F/A  Gm7   F/A   Bb   C
And moonlight's shining through.

LINK 1:
(Calmer)
            F        Am/E     Dm       F/C
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven,
          Bb          Bb/A    Gm7      Bb C     Bb C
I'll come crawling on back to you.

VERSE 2:
(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/C      F
And nothing's ever worth the cost.

BRIDGE 2:
      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.

Awesome for the piano!
Use this with some arpeggio type things and you can just about get it sounding pretty awesome!
Thanks!

You don't have the final verse in there starting at "I can see myself tearing up the road faster than any other boy has ever gone" which leads to the best part of the song. Boo to this, sir.
