---------------------------------------------------------------------
      E
I'm caught in a cross fire
  A           B     E
That I don't understand

            B         E
I want control right now
            A            B
You better listen to me baby


BREAK:

A
Talk about a dream
Try to make it real
      B
You wake up in the night
With a fear so real
A
Spend your life waiting
                              B
For a moment that just don't come
                             A  B
Well, don't waste your time waiting


CHORUS:
E                   A            B
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
          E
Let the broken hearts stand
         A                 B
As the price you've gotta pay
            E
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
           A               B          E    A  B
And these badlands start treating us good

VERSE:
Workin' in the fields
Till you get your back burned
Workin' `neath the wheel
Till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts
Learned real good right now
You better get it straight darling
Poor man wanna be rich,
Rich man wanna be king
And a king ain't satisfied
Till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight,
I wanna find out what I got

BREAK:
Well I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the faith that could save me
I believe in the hope
and I pray that some day
It may raise me above these

CHORUS:
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
And these badlands start treating us good


INSTRUMENTAL:  SOLO OVER VERSE CHORDS


INTERLUDE:

E          A      B
Mmmmmmmm, Mmmmm, Mmmmmm  -- 4x's
         E
For the ones who had a notion,
   A             B
A notion deep inside
        E
That it ain't no sin
        A            B
To be glad you're alive
         E
I wanna find one face
      A               B
That ain't looking through me
          E
I wanna find one place,
          A          B             E
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

CHORUS:
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you've gotta pay
We'll keep pushin' till it's understood
And these badlands start treating us good
