Conway Twitty – Desperado Love Lyrics

Should I just ride in and steal you away
Don’t know what else to do
I’ve got a desperado, love for you
You say you belong to another man
The first time we met I knew
That I have a desperado, love for you.

I know that it breaks every law
To feel the way I’m feelin’
But I want your love so desperately
I don’t see the wrong in stealin’
So hold on I’m gonna shoot for the heart
Like desperados do
I’ve got a desperado, love for you.

It’s so wrong to take what isn’t mine
And head out for the border
But I can’t look at you and have
Respect for law and order
So hold on I’m gonna’ shoot for the heart
Like desperados do
I’ve got a desperado, love for you.

I’ve got a desperado, love for you…
