Trouble in the heartland            
E                      B A

Smashin' in my guts, man

I'm caught in a cross fire

But there's one thing I know for sure girl

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              B    A          C#m B
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
          E
Let the broken hearts stand
B      A                  C#m 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

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

About the artist behind Badlands Tab:

Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American songwriter, singer and guitarist. He has recorded and toured with the E Street Band. Springsteen is widely known for his brand of heartland rock infused with pop hooks, poetic lyrics, and Americana sentiments centered around his native New Jersey. His eloquence in expressing ordinary, everyday problems has earned him numerous awards, including eighteen Grammy Awards and an Academy Award, along with a notoriously dedicated and devoted global fan base. His most famous albums, Born to Run and Born in the U.S.A., epitomize his penchant for finding grandeur in the struggles of daily life. He has sold over 65 million albums in the U.S.[1]

Springsteen's lyrics often concern men and women struggling to make ends meet. He has gradually become identified with progressive politics. Springsteen is also noted for his support of various relief and rebuilding efforts in New Jersey and elsewhere, and for his response to the September 11, 2001 attacks, on which his album The Rising reflects.

Springsteen's recordings have tended to alternate between commercially accessible rock albums and somber folk-oriented works. Much of his iconic status stems from the concerts and marathon shows in which he and the E Street Band present intense ballads, rousing anthems, and party rock and roll songs, amongst which Springsteen intersperses long, whimsical or deeply emotional stories.

Springsteen has long had the nickname "The Boss", a term which he was initially reported to hate but now seems to have come to terms with, as he sometimes jokingly refers to himself as such on stage. The nickname originated when a young Springsteen, playing club gigs with a band in the 1960s, took on the task of collecting the band's nightly pay and distributing it amongst his bandmates.[2]
