Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons,
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow 
 Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
She'll beat you if she's able,
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet 
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones you can't get
 Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone 
 Don't your feet get cold in the winter time ?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day 
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away
 Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you,   
You better let somebody love you before it's too late

DESPERADO (Henley & Frey, 1973)--"Organ" Part
-- guitar arrangement: tcg, 2/89
--4/4 // Key of G // Andante (pretty slow)
--use vibrato and/or wave effex box to mimic organ sound
--note durations: s=sixteenth note; e=eighth; q=quarter; q.=dotted quarter;
h=half; w=whole; (e)=eighth rest . . .
--!x!=play harmonic
--since only the "highest" four strings are played in this "melody chord"
arrangement, the low e & a strings are omitted in the actual tab
--chords are named according to voicings shown here; NOT rhythm-chord
designations, necessarily (though do harmonize with "book" chords)
--some way-up-the-fingerboard chords have been reduced to two notes
rather than three to ease fingering on a small (my!) fretboard
--"Organ" part begins with first "B" section ("Don't you draw the queen of
