      G  G7sus4          C              Cm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
         G            Em7      A7        D7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
             G       Gsus4         C                   Cm
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons
      G           B7     Em7           A7       D7   G   D7
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow

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

D7    G  G7sus4         C
Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger
     G        D     Em7            A7          D7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
    G            Gsus4                C
And freedom, oh, freedom, that's just some people talkin'
     G      B7   Em7                A7     D7  G    D
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone

           Em                   Bm               C                      G         D
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time? The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     Em7              C                   G
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
       Em              Bm                       C             G             Am7    D7
You're losin' all your highs and lows, ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away

      G  G7sus4             C             Cm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
     G         D      Em7  A7          D7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
          G       Gsus4          C              Cm
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
           G       B7   Em        C       G    Am7
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
           G       B7   Em         Am7           G     G7sus4 C Cm G
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
