Desperado

Eagles

 GG7CCm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
 GEm7A7D7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
 GG7CCm
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons,
 GB7Em7A7D7G
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow 
 DEmBm
 Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
 CG
She'll beat you if she's able,
 Em7CGD
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet 
 EmBmCG
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
 EmA7Am7
But you only want the ones you can't get
 DD7GG7CCm
 Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
 GEm7A7D7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
 GG7CCm
And freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
 GB7Em7A7D7G
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone 
 DEmBm
 Don't your feet get cold in the winter time ?
 CG
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
 Em7CGD
It's hard to tell the night time from the day 
 EmBm
You're losin' all your highs and lows
 CGAm7
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away
 DD7GG7CCm
 Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
 GDEmA7D7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
 GG7CCm
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you
 GB7EmCGAm7
You better let somebody love you,   
 GB7EmAm7D7G
You better let somebody love you before it's too late

Subject: Desperado ("Organ" part)
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 . . .
w>-----
--!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
diamonds....")
