I can't tell you why
                                (The Eagles)


Dmaj7                        Gmaj7
Look at us baby up all night tearing our love apart
Dmaj7                                           Gmaj7             F#7sus4  F#7
Aren't we the same two people who lived through years in the dark?
Bm                  A/B       Gmaj7                    F#7sus4  F#7
Every time I try to walk away something makes me turn around and stay
Bm                   A/B     G       F#m7
And I can't tell you why.
Dmaj7                                 Gmaj7
When we get crazy it just ain't right girl I get lonely too
Dmaj7                                      Gmaj7  F#7sus4  F#7 
You don't have to worry just hold on tight  'cause I love you.
Bb                        A/B       Gmaj7                     F#7sus4 F#7
Nothing's wrong as far as I can see we make it harder then it has to be
    Bm               A/B
And I can't tell you why no baby
Gmaj7        F#7sus4 F#7
I can't tell you why.....

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...
