Desperados Under The Eaves
Warren Zevon

F     Bb             C           F
I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
      Bb            C            F
I was staring in my empty coffee cup
      A                 Asus4-A      Bb
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn't lyin'
        F (let ring)
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles
I'm gonna drink 'em up
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/z/zevon_warren/desperados_under_the_eaves_tab.html ]
F      Bb         C(III)          F
And if California slides into the ocean
         Bb          C(I)              F
Like the mystics and statistics say it will
A              Asus4(?)      Bb
I predict this motel will be standing
C              F
Until I pay my bill

acoustic riff         electric riff (?????)

Don't the sun look angry through the trees
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves
Don't you feel like Desperados under the eaves
Heaven help the one who leaves

Bb                                   F
Still waking up in the mornings with shaking hands
F                                      C
And I'm trying to find a girl who understands me
    A                       Asus4        Bb
But except in dreams you're never really free
Bb        Bb       C        F
Don't the sun look angry at me

I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
I was listening to the air conditioner hum
It went mmmmmm..

{I haven't bothered to transcribe this part - I usually end in a jam in F,
then transition into After Midnight or just about anything done by Bonnie
Raitt in F.  Nothing like taking an audience from a relaxing tune to
dancing their butts off.}
