C C7 F Fm
Desperado why don't you come to your senses
C Am D7 G7
Been out riding fences for so long now
C C7
Oh you're a hard one
F Fm
But I know that you got your reasons
C Am
These things that are pleasing you
D7 G7 C
Will hurt you somehow

G7 Am Em
Don't you call on the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able
Am F C G7
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
Am Em F C
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
Am D7 G7
But you always want the ones you can't get

C C7 F Fm
Desperado you ain't getting no younger
C Am D7 G7
Your pain and your hunger they're driving you home
C C7 F Fm
Freedom oh freedom is just some people talking
C Am D7 G7 C
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

G7 Am Em
Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime
The sky won't show and the sun won't shine
Am F C
It's hard to tell the nighttime from day
G7 Am Em
Now you're losing all your highs and lows
F C Dm G7
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away

C C7 F Fm
Desperado why don't you come to your senses
C Am D7 G7
Come down from your fences and open the gate
C C7 F Fm
It’s raining but there's a rainbow above you
C Am F Fm
You better let somebody love you let somebody love you
C Am
You better let somebody love you
D7 G7 C
Before it's too late
