                I CAN'T TELL YOU WHY          THE EAGLES        Hell Freezes Over

Note to Player:  Arranged for Acoustic Guitar.  This is not a note-for-note copy.  It is 
interpretation for a single guitar and singer.  Simplified a bit - but it keeps with 
overall feel/tone of the song.


Capo = 2   Tempo = 88

Intro:
     Am   G         Am   G              Am   G            Am   G/E

Look at us baby up all night tearing our love apart

And I can't tell you why.

===========================================================================

Variation:  The Am/G phrase can be played with a higher voicing like this:

     Am   G         Am   G              Am   G        Am   G   
-----5-5--3---------5-5--3---|    |-----0-0-----------0-0------|

-----------------------------|    |----------0-------------0---|
-0---------------0-----------|    |--0-------------0-----------|
---------------0-------------|    |--------------0-------------|

===========================================================================

Full Ending:  If you choose to play the full ending - here's a simplified
version for Acoustic Guitar.  The Eagles play it with fantastic bends
that may be difficult on an acoustic.  The tab below substitues literal
notes for most bended notes and simplifies it a bit.  Buy and listen to
the Hell Freezes Over verison for timing and to hear the real deal.

Each chord name represents 4 beats.
