[Intro]
A 

[Verse]
A                                  D                     
If you think you can keep me here, to live in slavery, 
E                                              D
when you are wrong cause I'm coming back, and I will cut you down.
A                              D
1-2-3-4! Open up the back door,I'm coming through. 
E                                                        D
I'm gonna blast my way through this dog-gone town, you can hear the women scream


[Chorus]
A                        C#m                   D
Well I want action! And I want fighting in the streets,
C#m                                           D   
We're gonna take this town by storm, we're gonna burn the village down
A                            C#m 
We'll take no hostage, We'll give no quarter, 
D                           E                    A
They will remember the night of the star and the Slaughter.

[Verse]
A                                  D
Don't think you can keep me here, behind these factory walls
E                                           D
Maybe retire me, when I'm fifty five leave me to grow old.
A                               D
I'm not having none of that, hey I want my freedom.
          E                         D
I wanna be a hell-raiser, a storm-trooper, a military giant.


[Chorus]
A                     C#m             D
I want action! I want fighting in the streets,
C#m                                           D   
We're gonna take this town by storm, we're gonna burn the village down
A                            C#m 
We'll take no hostage, We'll get no porter, 
D                         E                    A
They will remember the night of the star and the Slaughter.


[Verse]
A                           D
I don't owe nothing to this crazy crazy world,
A                        D     
I'm doing to you before you do it to me.
A                           D
I ain't got nothing but this bottle and a girl
A                        D
and a fire burning in my soul.

[GUITAR SOLO]

A                              D
I'm making a list of everyone, who's ever done me wrong
E                              D
And you are right at the top, Baby you're number one.


[Chorus]
A                     C#m             D
I want action! I want fighting in the streets,
C#m                                           D   
We're gonna take this town by storm, we're gonna burn the village down
A                            C#m 
We'll take no hostage, We'll get no porter, 
D                         E                    A
They will remember the night of the star and the Slaughter.


[Outro]
D                         E                    A
They will remember the night of the star and the Slaughter.
D                         E                    A
D                         E                    A
D                         E                    A
D                         E                    A
