Intro:

B - B7 - E - Em

B - G#m - C#7 - F#


     B  B7         
Desperado, 
             E             Ebm7
why don't you come to your senses
         B      B/A#   G#m7 
You been out ridin' fences 
    C#7      F#7
for so long now
             B       B7/D#        
Oh, you're a hard one, 
            E                  Em
I know that you got your reasons, 
      B           B/A#   G#m7 G#m7/F#  
These things that are pleasin' you 
    C#7     F#7    B   F#/A#
can hurt you somehow


          G#m7              D#m/F#
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
       E                 B    B/A#
She'll beat you if she's able,
             G#m7               G#m7/F#           B   F#  F#/D#
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
       G#m7             D#m7         
Now it seems to me some fine things 
           E              B
have been laid upon your table
        C#sus2 C#     B                     F#   F#7
But you only want the ones that  you can't get


      B  B7   
Desperado, 
             E             Ebm7
oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
      B      B/A#  G#m7          
Your pain and your hunger, 
         C#sus4 C#       F#  F#7
they're drivin' you home
    B              B7/D#                      
And freedom, well, freedom, 
            E               Em
that's just some people talkin'
      B     B/A# G#m7 G#m7/F#    
Your prison is walkin' through 
     C#7   F#7   B   F#/A#
this world all alone


           G#m7              D#m/F#
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time 
       E                   B         B/A#
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     G#m7             G#m7/F#             B   F#  F#/D#
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
       G#m7            D#m7          
You're losin' all your highs and lows         
         E             B             F#   F#7
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away


     B  B7               E             Ebm7
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
     B         B/A#   G#m7  C#7      F#7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
             B       B7/D#            E               Em
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you 
           B       D#7   G#m   E  
You better let somebody love you,
E  D#7 C#m7   F#
(no singing)
           B       D#7   G#m        
You better let somebody love you 
  C#m7      F#7  B
before it's too late
