By: Glenn Frey and Don Henley 1973 [1]
Performed: The Eagles
G G7 C Cm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
G A7 D7
You been out riding fences for so long now
G G7 C Cm
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons
G B7 Em7 A7 D7 G
These things that are pleasing you can hurt you somehow
D Em Bm
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able
Em7 C G D
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
Em Bm C G
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
Em A7 Am7
But you only want the ones you can't get
D D7 G G7 C Cm
Desperado, oh you ain't getting no younger
G Em7 A7 D7
Your pain and your hunger, they're driving you home
G G7 C Cm
And freedom, well, that's just some people talking
G Em7 A7 D7 G
Your prison is walking through this world all alone
D Em Bm
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
Em7 C G D
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
Em Bm
You're losing all your highs and lows
C G Am7
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away
D D7 G G7 C Cm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
G D Em A7 D7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
G G7 C Cm
It may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you
G B7 Em C G Am7
You better let somebody love you,
G B7 Em Am7 D7 G
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
