Desperado  By The Eagles


Despe[G]rado, [G7]why don't you [C]come to your sen[Cm]ses ?
You been [G]out ridin' fences for [A7]so long now[D7]
Oh, you're a [G]hard one, [G7]I know that [C]you got your rea[Cm]sons,
These [G]things that [B7]are plea[Em7]sin' you can [A7]hurt you [D7]some[G]how

[D]Don't you [Em]draw the queen of [Bm]diamonds boy,
She'll [C]beat you if she's [G]able,
You know the [Em7]queen of hearts is [C]always your best [G]bet [D]
Now it [Em]seems to me some [Bm]fine things have been [C]laid upon your [G]table
But you [Em]only want the [A7]ones you can't [Am7]get
[D]Des[D7]per[G]ado, [G7]oh you ain't [C]gettin' no youn[Cm]ger,
Your [G]pain and your hun[Em7]ger, they're [A7]drivin' you [D7]home
And [G]freedom, [G7]well, that's just [C]some people tal[Cm]kin'
Your [G]prison is wal[Em7]kin' through this [A7]world all [D7]alo[G]ne
[D]Don't your [Em]feet get cold in the [Bm]winter time ?
The [C]sky won't snow and [G]the sun won't shine
It's [Em7]hard to tell the [C]night time from the [G]day [D]
You're [Em]losin' all your [Bm]highs and lows
Ain't it [C]funny how the [G]feelin' goes a[Am7]way
[D]Des[D7]pe[G]rado, [G7]why don't you [C]come to your sen[Cm]ses
Come [G]down from [D]your fen[Em]ces, [A7]open the [D7]gate
It may be [G]rainin',  [G7]but there's a [C]rainbow above you [Cm]
You better [G]let some[B7]body [Em]love you, [C]  [G]  [Am7]
You better [G]let some[B7]body [Em]love you be[Am7]fore it's [D7]too [G]late

This is a sweet tune for a rookie like me because it really helps learn the Minors and sevens and when to use them. Being a "strummer" , learning the sevens and minors allows me to "fill" between chord changes and not sound choppy.

Great song, love it!
I agree with baytripper, i also use the Em on the second line on "fences". It works better for me!

For the G, G7, C, Cm sequence, I play all barre chords with my first finger barring the third fret:
G = 355433
G7 = 353433
C = x35553
Cm = x35543
Enjoy!

I use the Em as well there. As for a better Cm, try x35543. It fits in with the song perfectly.

Yee-Haa for that Em.. Sounds great!

woah me too man!! wiiiiiicked

Second line, "You been out ridin' fences..." I like to walk down from that G on "out" to Em on "fences". Any other suggestions for a better sounding Cm in this song?
