"Saturday Night Special" - The Runaways
Album: And Now... The Runaways(1978)
Bassist: Vicki Blue(Album)/Laurie McAllister(Live)
Tabbed By: Ty W.(tydogg2443@aol.com)
________________________________________________________

Good Runaways tabs are hard to come by, so hopefully this will be a little help to someone. 
It's fairly straightforward. There are many subtle variations on the Chorus and Outro, but
there are too many to list. You can do your own variations, as the variations were 
never the same every time out. Use the tabbed chorus as a guide and have fun with it.
