The Desperate Man
The Black Keys Lyrics

See her walkin' with a fella
Two of them so nice and mellow
Hey hey hey hey hey
My heart is broken, open wide
Feel so down, deep inside
Hey hey hey hey hey

Summer slipped by and still it's fall
Wonder what she done me for
Hey hey hey hey hey
I'm too far down the deepest ditch
To far gone to ever switch
Hey hey hey hey hey

Drivin' on now without a care
Hope to catch you there
Hey hey hey hey hey
Don't forsake a desperate man
Hop you know that's what I am
Hey hey hey hey hey

April Ison

Clarissa Marlene

Love The Black Keys! I even meditate to as well as workout to their music!

Ryu Hayabusa

Attack of the Show has always played this when coming back from break. If only I knew I could have heard them a full year ago!

steven imeson

I love the dead and blk keys! bringing back the real blues

Chris Garner the Tuscan Wine Fan

I love the bass in this song.

Jessica Ray

@rambleonrose93 Yea, exactly, That's one of the reason why I love these two so much. You can hear their influences (Hendrix, Credence, GD etc) but they do it in such a genuine way. Good stuff my friend.


Love the backwards guitar. Makes me think of hendrix and the beatles, the song however is just down right dirty blues and i like it.

David Alt

You could hear Jimmi Hendrix screaming through that guitar solo. Amazing...

Herman Melville

walking on the street with this song makes you feel so godamned badass!!
