Desperado
                          By The Eagles


[Intro]

(I play the piano line to give it some character)
                                                              (hold) (hold)
  (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

or the chords are:
G G7 | C Cm6 | G Em | A7 D |


      G  G9              C              Cm6
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
         G            Em7      A7        D7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
             G       G*            C               Cm6
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons, 
      G           B      Em7           A7       D7     G  D/F#
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow


          Em                Bm7
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
       C                 G    G/F#
She'll beat you if she's able,
             Em7                C                G   D/F#
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
       Em               Bm7                    C              G
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
        Em            A7             Am7/D
But you only want the ones you can't get


D D7  G   Dm7/G        C                   Bm Am
Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
     G        D/F#    Em           A7          D7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
    G            Dm7/G                      C                  Bm Am
And freedom, oh, freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
     G      B7/F#   Em7             A7        D7     G  D/F#
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone


           Em                   Bm7
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time ?
    C                      G         D/F#
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     Em                 C                 G    D/F#
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
       Em              Bm7
You're losin' all your highs and lows
         C             G             Am7   Am7/D
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away


D  D7 G  Dm7              C              Cm6
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
     G         D/F#    Em  A7            D7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
          G      Dm7               C             Cm6
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you
           G       B7/F#  Em         C  G/B  Am
You better let somebody love you,
           G       B7/D# Em         Am7/D         (G  G7  C  Cm6  G)
You better let somebody love you before it's too late


[Outro]

I think that at the beginning of the song, the G9 in the verse should be a G7. Also, later on in the first verse the G* should be an F chord with a G bass.
