ROCK AND ROLL HELL
Gene Simmons, Bryan Adams, Jim Wallance

[Riff 1][Rhy. Fig 1a w/ Rhy. Fig 2a]
[Rhy. Fig 1b w/ Rhy. Fig 2b]

[Bass and drums only]
Been under fire sixteen years, just waitin' for his time to come
He fought the lies, fought back the tears
Can't wait to hear that starting gun

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
There ain't nobody gonna step on his dreams
So he held his hands high and screamed

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 1]
Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 2]
Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
[Rhy. Fig 6] (2x)

[Rhy. Fig 7a w/ Rhy. Fig 7b]
He's on the edge, he can feel it in his heart
This time the pressure's really on
He's gonna fight it, might even steal a guitar
This time tomorrow he'll be gone

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
There ain't nobody gonna tell him what to do
Think he's a little like me and you, yeah

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 1]
Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 3]
Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
[Riff 1]
[Solo over Rhy. Fig 1a w/ Rhy. Fig 2a (3x)][Rhy. Fig 1b w/ Rhy. Fig 2b]
[Rhy. Fig 8]

[Rhy. Fig 7a w/ Rhy. Fig 7b and Riff 2]He's on the run, won't stand for second place, but his turn may never come
He's not a victim, you can see it in his face
But he can't see what he's become

[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
Well, he wants it bad, but he wants no charity
[Riff 3]He seems to think it's his destiny

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 1 and Outro solo] (repeat and fade)Get me out of this rock and roll hell, I need to get away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
Get me out of this rock and roll hell, take me far away
Get me out of this rock and roll hell
