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