Desperado - The Eagles

Published on by Ashish


For most guitar beginners, the most rewarding part of learning guitar is the ability to play songs. In the beginning, this can be touch, but yet tricky - there are so many songs out there, and most of them are too difficult for novices. The following one with simple guitar tabs, chords and lyrics is very easy to play on guitar.

This is the song along with lyrics and guitar chords:


The Eagles -  Desperado

     G          G7          C          Cmin
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses ?
     G          Emin    A7      D7
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
     G          G7          C          Cmin
Oh, you're a hard one, I know that you got your reasons,
     G          B7          Emin         A7         D7         G
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow


     D          Emin    Bmin
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy,
     C          G
She'll beat you if she's able,
     Emin      C         G          D
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
     Emin      Bmin       C        G
Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table
     Emin       A7          Am7
But you only want the ones you can't get


     D          D7         G        G7        C        Cmin
Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger,
     G          Em7     A7     D7
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
     G          G7          C        Cmin
And freedom, well, that's just some people talkin'
     G          B7          Em7       A7       D7       G
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone


     D          Emin     Bmin
Don't your feet get cold in the winter time ?
     C          G
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
     Emin       C        G        D
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
     Emin       Bmin
You're losin' all your highs and lows
     C         G         Am7
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away


     D         D7       G       G7       C       Cmin
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
     G         D           Emin         A7      D7
Come down from your fences, open the gate
     G         G7        C       Cmin
It may be rainin',  but there's a rainbow above you
     G         B7         Emin         C        G       Am7
You better let somebody love you,
     G         B7         Emin        Am7      D7      G
You better let somebody love you before it's too late
