IT'S GOOD TIMES IN THE BADLANDS

EM A
WITH YOU OH, WITH YOU






VERSE 1

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
FIELDS OF GREEN, AND AUTUMN'S COOL WIND

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
LEAVES START TO FALL, WHERE SUMMER'S HAS BEEN

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
THE TIMES ARE LEAN, THE KIDS GO WITHOUT

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
SO LOW ON FEED, THE CATTLE ALL ABOUT

G Am7 A7
BUT I LOOK AT YOU AND I HAVE LITTLE DOUBT THAT IT'S ...



VERSE 2

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
THE BEAUTIFUL BADLANDS, COLORS OF PINK HUE

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
ONLY SURPASSED , BY THE BEAUTY OF YOU

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
RANCH LIFE IS HARD, IT'S TIME TO START ANEW

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
MAYBE THE CITY WILL , BE A LITTLE MORE TRUE

G Am7 A7
BUT I LOOK AT YOU, AND I'M NOT SO BLUE CAUSE IT'S ...








VERSE 3

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
GREAT PLAINS ARE WHITE, COVERED WITH SNOW AND ICE

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
IT IS HARSH HERE , BUT STILL A PARADISE

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
I LOOK AT THE BADLANDS, THEY STAND SO TALL

Fmaj7 Cmaj7
THIS IS MY LAND , AND I WILL NOT FALL

G Am7 A7
AND I LOOK AT YOU, AND YOU KNOW IT'S OUR CALL CAUSE IT'S ...
