      A  A7              D            Dm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
         A          F#m       B7      E7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
             A       A7            D           Dm
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons, 
      A               F#m             B7       E7  A
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow


Chorus 1:
          F#m                C#m
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
       D                 A
She'll beat you if she's able,
             F#m                D                A
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
       F#m             C#m                 D              
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon 
     A
your table
        B7                                  E7
But you only want the things that you can't get

        A  A7             D            Dm
Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
      A            F#m             B7         E7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
       A        A7                        D      
And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people 
  Dm
talkin'
     A         F#m                 B7         E7
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone




Chorus 2:
             F#m              C#m
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time
    D                      A
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     F#m         D         A
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
       F#m             C#m  
You're losin' all your highs and lows
         D             A            B7   E7
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away

    A    A7              D            Dm
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
      A             F#m   B7        E7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
          A      A7               D            Dm
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
           A            F#m     B7  E7   
You better let somebody love you,
            A           F#m     B7  E7
You better let somebody love you 
           A            F#m         
You better let somebody love you
  B7         E7  A
before it's too late

The Fm should be an F#m, but other than that, good work.
