[E]Honey, I want the heart, I want the [A]soul
I want contr[B]ol right n[E]ow
You better l[A]isten to me b[B]aby


BREAK:

[A]Talk about a dream
Try to make it real
You wa[B]ke up in the night
With a fear so real
[A]Spend your life waiting
For a moment that just don't c[B]ome
Well, don't waste your time w[A]ait[B]ing


CHORUS:
[E]Badlands, you gotta [A]live it every[B]day
Let the br[E]oken hearts stand
As the pr[A]ice you've gotta p[B]ay
We'll keep p[E]ushin' till it's understood
And these b[A]adlands start tr[B]eating us g[E]ood  [A]   [B]

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]Mmmmmmmm, M[A]mmmm, M[B]mmmmm  -- 4x's
For the o[E]nes who had a notion,
A n[A]otion deep ins[B]ide
That it [E]ain't no sin
To be gl[A]ad you're ali[B]ve
I wanna f[E]ind one face
That a[A]in't looking thr[B]ough me
I wanna fi[E]nd one place,
I wanna sp[A]it in the f[B]ace of these b[E]adlands
