                          By The Eagles

      F  C7              F              Fm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
         F            Dm7      G7        G7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
             F       C7            F               Fm
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons, 
      F           E7     Dm7           G7       G7     F
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow

G         Am                Em
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
       F                 F
She'll beat you if she's able,
             Dm7                F                F   G
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
       Am               Em                    F              F
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
        Am            G7             Dm7
But you only want the ones you can't get

G G7  F  C7             F             Fm
Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
     F               Dm7           G7          G7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
    F      C7                  F             Fm
And freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
     F      E7   Dm7                G7        G7     F
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone

G          Am                   Em
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time ?
    F                  F
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     Dm7              F                   F    G
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
       Am              Em
You're losin' all your highs and lows
         F             F             Dm7
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away

G  G7 F  C7              F              Fm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
     F         G      Am  G7         G7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
          F      C7               F           Fm
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you
           F       E7   Am         F  F  Dm7
You better let somebody love you,
           F       E7   Am         Dm7       G7  F
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
