Well the stage was set, the sun was sinkin' low down
As they came to town to face, another showdown.
The lawmen cleared the people from the street.
All you bloodthirsty bystanders, will you try to find your seat?
Watch 'em duelin', Doolin-Dalton.
High or low, it's all the same.
Easy money and faithless women.
You will never kill the pain.
Go down Bill Doolin, don't you wonder why
Sooner or later we all have to die?
Sooner or later, that's a stone cold fact.
Four men ride out, and only three ride back.
The queen of diamonds let you down, she was just an empty fable.
The queen of hearts you say you never met.
Your twisted fate has found you out, and it's fin'lly turned the table
Stole your dreams and paid you with regret.
Desperado, is there gonna be anything left?
Is there gonna be anything?
You sealed your fate up a long time,
Ain’t it hard when you’re all alone in the center ring?
Now there's no time left to borrow, is there gonna be anything left?
Only star dust, maybe
Maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow?
Desperado, desperado, desperado
