Johnny Cash – Desperado chords

A  A7  D  Dm  A  F#m  B7  E7

[Verse 1]
A A7 D DmDesperado, why don't you come to your senses
A F#m B7 E7You been out riding fences for so long now
A A7Oh, you're a hard one
D DmBut I know that you've got your reasons
A F#mThese things that are pleasing you
B7 E7 A ECan hurt you somehow
[Chorus 1]
F#m C#mDon't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
D AShe'll beat you if she's able
F#m D A EYou know the queen of hearts is always your best bet
F#m C#mNow it seems to me, some fine things
D AHave been laid upon your table
F#m B7 Bm EBut you only want the things that you can't get
[Verse 2]
A A7 D DmDesperado, oh, you ain't getting no younger
A F#m B7 E7Your pain and your hunger, they're driving you home
A A7And freedom, oh freedom
D DmWell, that's just some people talking
A F#mYour prison is walking
B7 E7 A EThrough this world all alone
[Chorus 2]
F#m C#mAnd don't your feet get cold in the winter time
D AThe sky won't snow, the sun won't shine
F#m D A EIt's hard to tell the night time from the day
F#m C#mYou're losing all your highs and lows
D A Bm E E7Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away
[Verse 3]
A D DmDesperado, why don't you come to your senses
A F#m B7 E7Come down from your fences, and open the gate
A A7 D DmIt may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you
A F#mYou better let somebody love you
D BmYou better let somebody love you
A C#7 F#mYou better let somebody love you
Bm E7 ABefore it's too late
