My apologies to The Eagles – I wrote this out of reverence and respect for “the song of the Century”

PLEASE DON’T SUE ME – I LOVE YOU GUYS. THIS IS FROM THE HEART AND DEDICATED TO YOU AND YOUR EXCEPTIONAL TALENT! ONLY FROM A PERSONAL PERSPECTIVE – THIS IS NOT FOR PROFIT OR MONETARY GAIN NOR DO I SEEK AND WILL NOT ACCEPT SUCH – THIS IS ONLY MY INTERPRETATION OF A GREAT WORK OF ART! PLEASE ALLOW PERMISSION FOR ME TO EXPRESS YOUR WORK IN MY WAY..

Don Hendley – drummer, songwriter and singer for the Eagles sheds the drums and just sings his heart out on this version of Desperado – which in my opinion is super but just doesn’t “knock my socks off” like the LIVE IN CONCERT versions – which have all disappeard from the net unfortunately for us all. GREAT NONETHELESS!!

Desperation.. we all must take back our nation;
we’ve been out fightin” henchmen for far too long;
oh you’re a hard one but I know you got your reasons;
these things that are pleasin’ you can hurt you can hurt you and how.. 

Don’t you draw the one-eyed jack boy
he’ll remove you from the table;
you know the Ace of Spades is always your best bet;

but now it seems to me some ugly scenes
have fallen on your table
but you only get the ones that lose the bet;

Desperation, its not gettin’ any better;
you pain and suffrin’ they always hurt to the bone; 
and the Freedom, the lost Freedom is your imagination talkin’ 
your lonesome ass endures this life alone

Don’t your ass get cold in the winter time?
Your luck won’t change and the sun don’t shine
and it’s hard to tell the good times from the bad
your tradin’ all your highs for lows
it ain’t funny how your life is oh so sad

Desperation why is this life so expensive 
you better wake up to your senses and take your life back
you think it’s stormin’ but there are clear skies and sunshine
you better get yourself together 
you got to shake this stormy weather
you better love one another before it’s too late..

    • Glad you liked it.. had no idea there was a such thing as parody rights. I can relax a little now. I hesitated to press “enter” last night for at least an hour but finally just jumped right in.. lol
