 "Desperado" is a soft rock ballad by the American rock band the Eagles. The track was written by Glenn Frey and Don Henley, and appeared on the 1973 album Desperado as well as numerous compilation albums. Although it was never released as a single, it became one of Eagles' best-known songs. It ranked No. 494 on Rolling Stone's 2004 list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

The song is a cautionary tale about a man who has lived a life of violence and crime. The narrator pleads with the desperado to "come to your senses" and "give up the fight". The song is a reflection on the futility of violence and the importance of redemption.


The song's lyrics are set in the Old West, but they can be interpreted as a metaphor for any life that is lived on the wrong side of the law. The desperado is a symbol of all those who have chosen a life of violence and crime. The narrator's plea for the desperado to "come to your senses" is a message of hope that even the most hardened criminal can find redemption.

The song's music is a slow, acoustic ballad. The melody is simple and haunting, and the lyrics are delivered in a heartfelt and passionate way. The song's arrangement is sparse, allowing the lyrics and melody to take center stage.

"Desperado" is a powerful and moving song that has resonated with listeners for generations. It is a song about the dangers of violence and the importance of redemption. It is a song that can inspire hope in even the darkest of times.
