C
Well, you gassed her up, behind the wheel
          Csus4
With your arm around your sweet one in your Oldsmobile
Dm7                                  G                        C
Barrellin' down the boulevard, your lookin' for the heart of Saturday Night.
 
And you got paid on Friday, and your pockets are jinglin'
And you see the lights, you get all tinglin' 
'Cause your cruisin' with a 6, 
And you're lookin' for the heart of Saturday night.
 
         Dm7               G                C
Then you comb your hair, shave your face, tryin' to wipe out ev'ry trace
         Dm7                         G (hold)
Of all the other days in the week, this'll be the Saturday 
 
You're reachin' your peak.
 
Stoppin' on the red, you're goin' on the green, 
'Cause tonight'll be like nothin' you've ever seen,
And you're barrellin' down the boulevard, 
Lookin' for the heart of Saturday night.
 
Repeat Intro
 
Is it the crack of the pool balls neon buzzin'?
Telephone ringin'; it's you're second cousin.
Is it the barmaid that's smilin' from the corner of her eye?
Magic of the melancholy tear in your eye.
 
Makes it kind of special down in the core
'Cause your dreamin' of them Saturdays that came before
And now you're stumblin' on the heart of Saturday night.
 
Well, you gassed her up, behind the wheel 
With your arm around your sweet one in your Oldsmobile
Barrellin' down the boulevard, your lookin' for the heart of Saturday Night.
You’re going’ barrellin' down the boulevard, your lookin' for the heart of Saturday Night.
You’re barrellin' down the boulevard, your lookin' for the heart of Saturday Night.
