[Verse 1]

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]
(same as verse 1)

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]
(same as verse 1)

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....

Love this tab!Find it best with the capo.I have some minor lyric corrections as follows...2nd part of first verse it's "You thought you could find happiness..."2nd verse 1st line is "We're like sheep..."2nd part of same verse is "But the flock..."3rd verse 1st line is "There are so many..."The cords (with capo)are perfect.Sorry to be so picky with the lyrics!

i like it all
but i'm using different bar chords cos i have trouble with the A shape barres. so if anyone else is having that trouble just try some of the chord variations :)

I just prefer to play it in the key of G, but you have to tune the guitar down a half step. Watch Don Henley play it and you'll see what I'm talking about.
