Written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey
Performed by The Eagles (1973)

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses
You've been out ridin' fences
For so long - now
Ohh you're a hard one
I know that you've got your reasons
These things that are pleasin'you
Can hurt you somehow

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

Ohhhh you aint getting no younger
Your pain and your hunger
They're driving you home
And freedom, ohh freedom
Well that's just some people talking
Your prison is 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
And you're losing all your highs and lows
Aint it funny how the feeling goes

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
(Let sombody love you)
You better let somebody love you...ohhh..hooo
Before it's too..oooo.. late

other sizes: small medium large original

Great shot Ray - I'll be the 'Queen of Hearts'
she sounds a bit nicer the 'diamonds'.
