I've seen the Joshua Tree
Got down on my knees
Threw the Virgin Mother a prayer
I've walked glass barefooted
Strolled 'cross the devil's hot coal
I've tried everything, I swear

Oh but hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
I said hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

(Poo poo poo-poo-poo-poo-poo)

Fortuneteller told me
"No more last chances
"You got no future at all"
Oh but I ain't listenin'
To black-hearted gypsy
Nailed a crucifix to a different wall

Hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
I said hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

Yeah, I'm a half-cock, full-tilt
Scarred-hands-to-the-hilt
Don't-push-me, grown-ass man
Yeah, flashin' light, caution
Careful where ya cross, son
'Til she comes back again

Yeah hey, what can I say?
I'm a desperate man
Oh hey, what can I say?
I'm just a desperate man

Oh hey, I said hey
Woah, what can I say? I'm a desperate man
Oh hey, I said hey
I'm just a desperate man
