Desper-ado,  why don't you come to your senses?

You've been out riding fences   for so long now.

                     G       G7                           C              Cm  

Oh, you're a hard one,    but I know that you've got your reasons,

           G                    D/A       Em7/B    A7      D7    G     D/F#

These things that are pleasin'  you can hurt you somehow.

              Em                        Bm7          

Don't you draw the Queen of Diamonds, boy,

          C                      G  

She'll beat you if she's able,

You know the Queen of Hearts is always your best bet.

            Em                       Bm7           

Well it seems to me some fine things

                 C                   G   

Have been laid upon your table,

             Em                A7                      Am7   D7

But you only want the ones that you can't get.

           G   G7                   C           Cm     

Desper-ado,    oh you ain't gettin' no younger,

            G              Em7                 A7              D7   

Your pain and your hunger,   they're driving you home.

             G         G7                                 C               Cm     

And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talking,

          G           D/A       Em7/B         A7     D7   G     D/F#  

Your prison is walking   through this world all a-lone.

               Em                         Bm7       

Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime,

        C                               G              

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine,

     Em                   C                       G   D/A   

It's hard to tell the nighttime from the day.

           Em                 Bm7              

You're losing all your highs and lows,

               C               G                Am7    D  D7  

Ain't it funny how the feeling goes a-way.

            G   G7                   C                 Cm    

Desper-ado,  why don't you come to your senses,

           G                     Em7      A7        D7     

Come down from your fences,  open the gate.

              G        G7                      C          Cm     

It may be raining,       but there's a rainbow above  you,

              G                 D/A   Em/B    

You better let somebody love you,

C                     G/B    Am  

{let somebody love you}

               G           D      /A   Em/B    

You better let somebody love you,

      Am7         G    G7-C-Cm-G

Be-fore it's too late.
