This tab does not have the intro riff, this is simply my interpretation of the song.

Song: Battle Born
Artist: The Killers
Album: Battle Born

Intro:  F - C - Bb - C - Dm - F - Gm - Gm - Bb

F                 C
Lost faith in the human spirit
    Dm                 Bb
You walk around like a ghost
                   F
Your star spangled heart
       Gm            C
Took a train for the coast

F                       C
When you shine you're a hill top mansion
   Dm                Bb
So how'd ya lose the light?
                    F
Was it blown by the wind?
       Gm           C
In the still of the night
Bb
We're up against the wall

F                  C
Up against the wall
Bb                         C   Dm
There's something dying on the street
                        F 
When they knock you down
Gm                            C
You're gonna get back on your feet
Bb
(But you can't stop now)

F                   C
I always saw you as a kind of keeper
Dm                Bb
Mother to a child
                         F
But your boys have grown soft
Gm                       C
And your girls have gone wild

F                   C
From the blue ridge to the black hills
Dm                Bb
To the redwood sky
                   F
The season may pass
        Gm            C
But the dream doesn't die
Bb
Why did you drop the ball?

F                  C
Up against the wall
Bb                         C   Dm
There's something dying on the street
                        F 
When they knock you down
Gm                            C
You're gonna get back on your feet
Bb
(But you can't stop now)

F                        C
Did they break your heart
Bb                         C    Dm
And did they cause your soul to mourn
                F
Remember what I said
Gm                 Bb
Boy you was battle born
Bb
(But you can’t stop now)

Gm - Bb - Dm - F

You was Battle Born

Gm                          Bb
When the night falls on the land
                       Dm     F
Are you haunted by the sound?

Gm                          Bb
It's gonna take more than a hand
                   Dm
To turn this thing around
Won't you lean it on me?
C
Rescue, set me free!

F                  C
Up against the wall
(Up against the wall)
Bb                         C   Dm
There's something dying on the street
                        F
When they knock you down
Gm
You're gonna get back on your feet
Bb
(But you can't stop now)

F                        C
Did they break your heart
Bb                         C    Dm
And did they cause your soul to mourn
                F
Remember what I said
Gm                 Bb
Boy you was battle born
Bb
(But you can’t stop now)

F                 C
Come on show your face
Bb                       C     Dm
Come on give us one more spark
                         F
We’ll sing a song of fire
Gm                        
Lost we fall into the dark
Bb
(No, you can't stop now)

F
You never know
                  C
If you never learn
Bb         
You never shine
                 C
If you never burn
Dm
The rising tide
            F
The undertow
Gm 
The venom and
The overflow
Bb
You turn away
            F
Welcome home.
