Most Of Us Are Sad

Eagles

 1972
      Here's another song off the Eagles' debut album.  Since Frey
wrote and sang it, I have to love it!! (You rule Glenn!)
Have fun with it, and I hope most of you aren't sad by the time
you're done playing it. It's in 3/4 time, just so you know.

I agree, this is a great song and and probably one of the best of on the album. It is also interesting since Glenn Frey wrote it himself, without any song writing partner.

However, note that is actually the bass player Randy Meisner who sings lead vocals on it (don't ask me why!), not Glenn himself. Meisner's very unique high pitch singing style can't be mistaken.
You also simplified the chords a bit, so I took the liberty to add some additions and corrections. You forgot the Gsusu4 and on some verses the second line ends with a Fmaj9 instead of an ordinary F, which also is shown in the chords displayed in the Eagles Complete chord and lyrics handbook.
