Are screaming and the fires are howling
Way down in the valley tonight
     There’s a man in the shadows with a gun is his eye
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|--8-10--------------------------|
|--8-10--------------------------|
|--6--8--------------------------|
|--------------------------------|

And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killers on the bloodshot streets
Oh and down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy, down in the gutter
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

 Oh baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
 that’s pure and good      and right
 and wherever you are and wherever you go
 there’s always gonna be some light
 but I gotta get out I gotta break it out now
 before the final crack of dawn
 so we gotta make the most of this one night together
 when it’s over you know
 we’ll both be so alone

 Like a bat out of hell
