intro:

F# B F# B

F# B C# C#

 

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

 

Bridge:

C#

Now the flowers in your garden

B

They don't smell so sweet so sweet

C#

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....

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

 

Intro:

 

E-A-E-A-E-A-B

 

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:

 

e:------------|

B:-----------0|

G:---------2--|

D:---4---2----|

A:-2----------|

E:------------|

 

 

Sometimes the electric plays this:

 

H

e:--------------|

B:----0-2------0|

G:-2---------2--|

D:---------2----|

A:--------------|

E:--------------|

 

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.

 

E-A-E-A

 

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

 

E-A-E-A-E-A-E-A

 

Bridge:

[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

e:---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B:-----------9/11\9----------------------------------------------------------|

G:-----------9/11\9-----------------2/4\2----------------------------4-6--4--|

D:----7-9-11----------------4-6-4---2/4\2-2----------------6-9--9-6---------6|

A:7-9------------------2-2--------4---------4--2-4----7-7--------------------|

B:----------------------------|

G:------9/11-9----------------|

D:-4-----------7-9/11-9-------|

A:---7------------------11-9-7|

E:----------------------------|

 

 

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.

 

Outro:

E-A-E-A-E-A-E-A

Keep on runnin'

Just keep on runnin'

Yeah.
