F#                          B
It's just another day in paradise
D#m                   C#
As you stumble to your bed
F#               B
Give anything to silence
D#m                  C#
These voices ringing in your head

D#m                      B
You thought you would find happiness
D#m                B
Just over that green hill
D#m                      A#m
You thought you would be satisfied
B             C#
But you never will
               F#	B 	F# 	B
Learn to be still

(verse 2):
Like sheep without a shepherd
Don't know how to be alone
So we wander 'round this desert
Wind up following the wrong gods home

The flock cries out for another
They keep answering that bell
One more starry eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden
They don't smell so sweet so sweet
Maybe you'd forgotten
D#m              C#
The heaven lying at your feet

F#	F#	B	B
F#	F#	B	B

Verse 3:
There's so many contradictions
In all these messages we send
Keep asking how do I get out of here
Where do I fit in

Though the world is torn and shakin'
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
Someday you will
Learn to be still

(F# 	B repeated over and over till end of song).
Learn to be still

Just keep on running

Keep on running....

"I wanna find myself a girl
Who can show me what laughter means
And we'll fill in the missing colors
In each others paint-by-number dreams"		-- Jackson Browne

"In my dreams I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows they learned to swim"		-- U2

This is how I play Learn To Be Still by the Eagles.  There is a capo on 2nd fret on all guitars, and the tab of the intro and solo reflects this tuning.

define: C#m7 {x 1 3 1 2 1  4th}

        G#m7 {1 3 1 1 1 1  4th}

             LEARN TO BE STILL

          performed by The Eagles
     written by Don Henley and Stan Lynch



   The acoustic guitars play the first E-A, then an electric comes in and plays E-A, then another electric comes in and plays the following intro riff:


Sometimes the electric plays this:


Then the verse starts.  The progression over the verse is as follows:

Verse 1:
[E] Just another day in pa[A]radise
[C#m7] As you stumble to your be[B]d.
[E] You'd give anything to silence[A]
[C#m7] Those voices ringin' in your [B]head.

[C#m7] You thought you could find happi[A]ness
[C#m7] Just over that green [A]hill.
[C#m7] You thought you would be [G#m7]satisfied,
[A] But you never w[B]ill...learn to be sti[E]ll.


Verse 2:
We are like sheep without a shepherd
Who don't know how to be alone.
So we wander 'round this desert
Wind up following the wrong Gods home.

But the flock cries out for another,
And we keep answering that bell.
One more starry-eyed Messiah
Meets a violent farewell...learn to be still


[B] Now the flowers in your [A]garden
[B] They don't smell so sweet [A] so sweet
[B] Maybe you've forgotten [C#m7] the Heaven lyin' at your [B] feet.  Yeah Yeah Yeah.

Then the solo comes in, and it looks something like this.  The chords over the solo are E for 2 measures, A for 2 measures.  This is done twice under the solo.

                            H P                H           H         H


Then back to the verse

Verse 3:
There are so many contradictions
In all these messages we send. (we keep askin')
How do I get outta here?
Where do I fit in?

And though the world is torn and shakin',
Even if my heart is breakin',
It's waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will...learn to be still.

Keep on runnin'
Just keep on runnin'

That's about it.  I hope I included everything, and I hope everyone enjoys playing it.  Please send comments, peeves, corrections, an electric guitar (please!), or any type of guitar talk to:
