Disagree with the lyrics. If you settle for somebody you're not into, you will be miserable. Better to be alone.

Slow pace, cryptic yet soul bearing lyrics, Henley voice, attention grabbing song by the Eagles

Like Desperados Waiting for a Train....Whe n it rains it pours

Think this was the first song Henley and Frey wrote together. Desperado is classic music!

This is one of my top ten all favorite songs. Probably because I'm a desperado and outlier.
