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.
