Intro/main riff: (Gm Gm F F) x8

Verse 1:
Gm Gm F F ...
I took my baby on a river boat cruise 
And she was well aware 
I was excited about the way things could have been 
Cause in it I don't care 
I want a face no one can recognize, in disguise 
Someone called out my name 
They thought of taking pictures, autographs, then they grab 
My joy has turned to pain 

Chorus 1:
Cm                               D
Father always told me, you won't live a quiet life 
Cm                                 Gm
If you're reaching for fortune and fame 
F                                   Gm
I feel the pressure setting in, I'm living just to win 
Cm                             D
I'm down in my pain, don't you feel it? 
Gm Gm F F ...
It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame 
So don't be feelin' no pain! 
It's the price of fame, it's the price of fame 
So don't you ever complain! 

Verse 2:
Gm Gm F F ...
I'm on the cover of the magazine, what a scene 
They know my every do's 
Just sign your name on the dotted line, you'll be fine 
that always bothers me 
Get in your car, you wanna take a ride, look behind 
Someone is following you 
You try to get away you turn real fast, but too bad 
They know your every move! 

Chorus 2:
Cm                               D
My father always told me, you won't live a quiet life 
Cm                                 Gm
If you're reaching for fortune and fame 
F                                   Gm
I feel the pressure setting in, I'm living just to win 
Cm                               D
I bleed all this pain, don't you ever complain! 
Gm Gm F F ... 
It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame 
So don't you ever complain! 
It's the price of fame, you pay the price for fame 
So don’t be feelin' no pain! 

Interlude:
Cm                    D             F         Gm Gm F F
It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame! 
Gm Gm F F           Cm                   D                
Father never lies, my father never lies, My father never lies 
F                            Gm Gm F F ...
So don’t be feelin' this way boy! 

::Keyboard solo::

Verse 3:
Gm Gm F F ...
I'd like to take some time and get away, then they'll say, 
Is that boy still alive? 
The week in village - what a thrill 
Only the strong survive 

Chorus 3:
Cm                               D
My father always told me, you won’t live a quiet life, 
Cm                          Gm
They startin' to wonderin' where have you been? 
F                                   Gm
I feel their envious looks at me, Their mistaken jealousy 
Cm                                          D
Then stand here in my shoes, and then get a taste of my blues! 
Gm Gm F F ... 
It's the price of fame 
You pay the price of fame, so don't you ever complain! 
It's the price of fame 
You pay the price of fame 
So don't be feelin' this way! 
It's the price of fame 
You pay the price of fame, so don't you ever complain! 

Outro:
Cm                      D           F        Gm Gm F F
It's the price of fame, you pay the price of fame! 
Gm Gm F F          Cm
Father never lies, my father never lies baby 
D
My father never lies 
F                           Gm Gm F F ...
So don't be feelin' no pain boy!

So glad these are helping people! The "Bad 25" album has so many great songs that not many people have heard. I'm working on more tabs for other songs off that album, so keep an eye out for those, and message me if you have any specific requests.
