Desperado  Eagles

Desper[G]ado[G7], why don't you [C]come to your se[Cm]nses ?
You been [G]out ridin' fe[Em7]nces for [A7]so long no[D7]w
Oh, you're a [G]hard one[G7], I know that [C]you got your rea[Cm]sons,
These [G]things that [B7]are ple[Em7]asin' you can [A7]hurt you [D7]somehow[G]
[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]De[D7]sper[G]ado[G7], oh you ain't [C]gettin' no you[Cm]nger,
Your [G]pain and your hu[Em7]nger, they're [A7]drivin' you [D7]home
And [G]freedom[G7], well, that's just [C]some people ta[Cm]lkin'
Your [G]prison [B7]is wa[Em7]lkin' through this [A7]world all [D7]alone[G]
[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]per[G]ado[G7], why don't you [C]come to your se[Cm]nses
Come [G]down from [D]your fe[Em]nces[A7], open the [D7]gate
It may be [G]rainin'[G7],  but there's a [C]rainbow abov[Cm]e you
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

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 . . .
--!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
