Desperado.
Linda Ronstadt.
Album: Don't Cry Now.
Capo 4.

Intro: G G7 C Cm G D Em7 A7 D7
     G
Desperado,
G7            C               Cm
Why don't you come to your senses,
            G          Em7
You've been out riding fences,
    A       D7      G
For so long now, oh you're a hard one,
                C                  Cm
But I know that you've got your reasons,
      Gmaj7           Em   G
These things that are pleasing you,
     A        D7  G  F#m7
Will hurt you somehow.

          Em                Bm7
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
       C                 Gmaj7
She'll beat you if she's able,
    Em7                C                G  F#m6
The queen of hearts is always your best bet,
B7      Em               Bm7
Well it seems to me some fine things,
          C              G
Have been laid upon your table,
        Em7           A
But you only want the things,
               D
That you can't get.

     Gmaj7
Desperado,
         C         C6          Cm
You know you ain't getting younger,
     G        D/F#  Em7
Your pain and your hunger, 
    A7          D7
Are driving you home,
    G
And freedom, oh freedom,
Bdim7       C                   Cm
Well that's just some people talking,
     Gmaj7     Em7
Your prison is walking through, 
     A        D7  G F#m7
This world all alone.

           Em                   Bm7
Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime,
C                      G
Sky won't snow and the sun won't shine,
     Em7              Cmaj7               G   B7
It's hard to tell the night time from the day,
       Em              Bm
You're losing all your highs and lows,
         C             G6     Gmaj7  A   D7
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away.

D6   G
Desperado,
              C               Cm
Why don't you come to your senses,
     Gmaj7          Em7
Come down from your fences,
A        D               G
Open the gate, it may be raining,
              Cmaj7         Cm7
But there's a rainbow above you,
           G      D/F#  E7   D
You better let somebody love you,
C       B    A    Am7
Let somebody love you,
G/D     D#aug Em      G
Let somebody love you,
A7          C/D  D  G   C Cm G
Before it's t----oo late.
