Guitar tabs with lyrics

Here is the tablature for the Eagle's "I Can't Tell You Why" Or at least as
close as I could get it. If anyone finds any errors in this, please email
me and let me know.I've found that this is a really good song to do not only
"electrified" as it was originally done, but also as an "unplugged" version.
The possibilities are endless.


This is the lead part that Don plays in the middle of the song.

In the original studio recording, it just keeps repaeating the last few bars and
fades out. However, on the Eagle's live album and on "Hell Freezes Over," the
song ends with a little ditty like this at the end...
