Desperados Under The Eaves chords
Warren Zevon 1976 (Warren Zevon)

Capo III

Bm A D  D Bm  D Bm D A . . .G D A D

D     G              A         D          
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
      G             A            D   Bm
I was staring in my empty coffee cup
      F#                F7           Bm
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn't lying
        D                       Bm
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles
D                   A
I'm gonna drink 'em up

       G          A               D
And if California slides into the ocean
         G           F#m               D
Like the mystics and statistics say it will
Dm                           F#m        Em             D
I predict this motel will be standing:  until I pay my bill

D Bm G D   A

    D         G        F#m               D
But don't the sun look angry through the trees?
          G               F#m       Bm
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves?
                         D               E  Em E7
Don't you feel like Desperados under the eaves
Em              A A7    D
Heaven help the one who leaves

Em                     E             Bm
Still waking up in the mornings with shaking hands
        D                Bm            A      Bm
And I'm trying to find a girl who understands me
      F#                    F7           Bm
But except in dreams you're never really free
          G   F#m  A     A7 D
Don't the sun look angry at me?

D     G              A         D          
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
      G                A               D   Bm
I was listening to the air conditioner hum

        Bm  D   Bm        D
It went mmm mmm mmmm mmmm mmm...
D       G    D    A
mmm mmm mmmm mmmm mmm...

Bm D Bm  D
D G D A . . .
Bm D Bm  D
D G D A . . .

      G
Look away
           D    Bm
(Look away down Gower Avenue, look away)
      G
Look away
           D    A
(Look away down Gower Avenue, look away)
      G
Look away
           D    Bm
(Look away down Gower Avenue, look away)
      G
Look away
           D    A
(Look away down Gower Avenue, look away). . .

Is that F7 correct? It sounds very wrong. Gm sounds much more natural, I know Warren Zevon does weird things sometimes but Gm sounds much better to my ears...

your tabbing isusually very good, but I know this song deeply in my bones, and it's a little off. I can offer some corrections if you're interested. I know you're an accomplished tabber, so I understand if you don't want to :-)
