Every night I grab some money and I go down to the bar
A                                                     D/A  A
I got my buddies and a beer I got a dream I need a car
           E                             D
You got me begging on my knees C'Mon and throw this dog a bone
  Bm                              E
A man he doesn't live by Rock 'n'Roll and brew alone
A/E   E  A/E  E
Ba - by, Ba - by


   [Chorus 1]

D                        E
Rock 'n' Roll and brew , Rock 'n' Roll and brew
  A                                F#m           E
They don't mean a thing When I compare  next to you
D                       E
Rock 'n' Roll and brew, Rock 'n' Roll and brew
 A                            F#m
I know that you and I,we got better things to do 
 E           D
I don't know who you are or what you do
  E                              F#m
Or where you go when you're not around
              D                 E
I don't know anything about you baby
            A                      D
But you're everything I'm dreaming of
  A                                    E                     D
I don't know who you are, but you're a real dead ringer for love
  E
A real dead ringer for love

I don't have to know your name,and I won't tell you what to do

   [Middle Eight]

 E        
Oooo You got the kind of legs,that do more than walk
  A
I don't have to listen,to your whimpering talk
      E
Listen you got the kind of eyes,that do more than see
A
You gotta lot of nerve coming on to me
D
You got the kind of lips that do more than drink
A
You got the kind of mind that does less than think
              F#m
But since I'm feeling kinda lonely and my defenses are low
             Bm
Why don't we give it shot and get ready to go
  D
I'm looking for anonymous and fleeting satisfaction
E
And I want to tell my Daddy that I'll be missing in action


  [Verse 3]

  A                                                       D/A  A
Ever since I can remember,I've been hanging around this joint
A                                                   D/A  A
My Daddy never noticed it,now he finally got the point
           E                               D
You got me beggin' on my knees,C'Mon and throw this dog a bone
  Bm                              E
A man he doesn't live by,Rock 'n' Roll and brew alone

I know that you and I,we got better things to do
 D                      E
Rock 'n' Roll and brew,Rock 'n' Roll and brew
 A                                F#m
They don't mean a thing,when I compare 'em next to you
          D
I don't know who you are,or what you do
  E                              F#m
Or where you go,when you're not around

Very good tab. Sounds like the original backing track was sped up, making it slightly sharp, so using a chromatic tuner it's approx. +30 above standard tuning to play along.
Much later live versions are in concert pitch, but Meatloaf sings it in A, rather than Bb to still reach those higher notes.
