Title: "Sad Café"
Artist: "Eagles"
Album: "The Long Run"

Capo 2nd fret.


A       Dm     E      A
A       Dm     E      E7    A

[Verse 1]
(chords keep repeating)

A            Dm                     E              A
  Out in the shiny night the rain was softly falling
A                          Dm           E       E7     A
  Tracks that ran down the boulevard had all been washed away
Out of the silver light, the past came softly calling
And I remember the times we spent, outside the Sad Café

(same chords progression)

Oh it seemed like a holy place protected by amazing grace
We would sing right out loud those things we could not say
Thought we could change this world with words like love and freedom
And we were part of the lonely crowd outside the Sad Café

F#m                 C#m7
Oh expecting to fly
           F#m                                            Bm   E
We would meet on that beautiful shore in the sweet by and by

[Verse 2]

Some of our dreams came true and some just passed away
And some of them stayed behind inside the Sad Café

[Acoustic Solo]

Esus4              E
The clouds roll in
Esus4   E
Hid that shore
Esus4     E
Now that glory train
   Esus4                     E
It don't stop here no more

Dsus4           D                Dsus4                          D
Now I look at the years gone by and wonder at the powers that be
Esus4                   E                Esus4                        E
I don't know why fortune smiles on some and lets the rest go free

Maybe now that the time has drawn the faces I recall
But things in this life change very slowly if they ever change at all
There's no use in asking why, it just turned out that way
So meet me at midnight baby inside the Sad Café
Why don't you meet me at midnight baby inside the Sad Café

(same as verse chords)


Dm      xx0231          Dsus4  xx0233
E7      020100          Esus4  022200

Great tab, one thing I noticed is that it sounds better if you play an Asus2 after the the A at the end of each line of the verse.

also if you want piano chords than transpose up 2 to B :)

Without capo it sounds good. Better if you pick A-B notes on fifth chord 2nd fret (very easy from A) at the end of even lines.
