這是 Album  "Desperado" 中的第一首歌:Doolin-Dalton,感覺就是很西部的蒼涼。歌名的含意是參考網路資訊如下

第二張專輯「Desperado」發行於1973年, 由傑克森‧布朗、Glenn Frey、Don Henley、J.D. Souther四人合寫的專輯第一首歌"Doolin-Dalton"即點出主題:「Desperado」是一張以十九世紀末美國中西部的法外之徒為概念 的作品。Doolin的全名是William Doolin,以他為首的一夥人稱為Wild Bunch,其中包括外號「Bitter Creek」的George Newcomb;Dalton指的是Dalton兄弟,他們從1891年開始涉及多起火車、銀行搶案。專輯封面與曲式上都顯示出「Desperado」濃 厚的大西部荒涼、不法之徒橫行的特色。兩首單曲分別是"Tequila Sunrise"和"Outlaw Man",不過可以常聽到其他藝人包括琳達.朗絲黛、卡本特兄妹翻唱從未發行過單曲的標題歌曲"Desperado"。吉他手Bernie Leadon被團員認為是當時樂壇斑鳩琴彈得最好的樂手之一,在第七首隻有40幾秒的"Doolin-Dalton"演奏版裡可以欣賞到他的絕技。 「Desperado」對老鷹合唱團而言最具意義的是兩大台柱Glenn Frey與Don Henley首次合作寫歌,"Tequila Sunrise"、"Desperado"就是他倆的創作,並且各自擔任一曲的主唱。

歌詞:http://www.iselong.com/lyrics/e/eagles%5Cdoolin-dalton.html 

They were duelin', Doolin-Dalton.
High or low, it was the same:
Easy money and faithless women,
Red-eye whiskey for the pain.
Go down, Bill Dalton, it must be God's will,
Two brothers lyin' dead in Coffeyville,
Two voices call to you from where they stood.
Lay down your law books now,
They're no damn good.
Better keep on movin', Doolin-Dalton,
'Til your shadow sets you free.
If you're fast and if you're lucky,
You will never see that hangin' tree.
Well, the towns lay out across the dusty plains
Like graveyards filled with tombstones, waitin' for the names.
And a man could use his back or use his brains,
But some just went stir crazy, Lord, 'cause nothin' ever changed
'Til Bill Doolin met Bill Dalton.
He was workin' cheap, just bidin' time.
Then he laughed and said, I'm goin'
And so he left that peaceful life behind.
Mm...
