Desperado - The Comedian by SilentKW Desperado - The Comedian by SilentKW
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now.
Oh, you're a hard one,
But I know that you've got your reasons.
These things that are pleasin' you,
Can hurt you somehow.

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy,
She'll beat you if she's able.
Know the queen of hearts is always your best bet.
Now it seems to me, some fine things,
Have been laid upon your table.
But you only want the things that you can't get.

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger:
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home.
And freedom, oh freedom,
Well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking,
Through this world all alone.

And don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow, the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're loosin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling,
Goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, and open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you,
You better let somebody love you,
You better let somebody love you,
You better let somebody love you,
Before it's too late.

"Desperado" - Johnny Cash


The Comedian ladies and gents. You know, I actually didn't like him at all in the GN, yea he had some good lines, but I never really liked the character, but then after seeing the movie, I loved this guy. Jeffery Dean Morgan was just so awesome, and despite being a complete douche, the scenes where the Comedian does show some emotion, JDM played it with great sincerity and I genuinely felt for him.

Brilliant song by Johnny Cash. I had a bit of trouble finding a song for the Comedian, but after listening to some Cash, I felt this song was appropriate. Enjoy.

I'm gonna cosplay the Comedian at next year's NYCC!! I DIG him!! SO flawed and scarred up. But sorry to correct you, "Desperado" was an Eagles song written by Don Henley and co-arranged with his friend and bandmate Glen Frey. It's my life's theme song, so this I'm well acquainted with.

I like the Comedian, but sometimes I just feel like he's a bad take on the Joker.
