You Never Cry Like A Lover  Eagles

[1974]     This is another early Henley ballad, a great song which
is really easy to play. Once I got the opening I got the
rest of the song on the first run-through. I will put
up the acoustic part and lyrics first, then I'll attempt
the electric part below. Have fun!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------INTRO (piano on 1st line, guitar enters on 2nd)

All single-note runs are (g a c):
[C]        [D]        [Fm]        [C]  [C]        [D]        [Fm]        [C]  [G]  You never cry like a [C]lover should
[G]  Sigh-ay-ay when it [C]feels real good
[G]  Or see the sky through the [C]stone and wood
[G]  You never cry like a lover
[C]  I thought I saw some[D]body I loved
[Fm]  Sleepin' deep in[C]side you
[C]  If I could catch you at an [D]unguarded moment
[Fm]  I'd stay right there be[C]side you
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Verse and Chorus simile to above

You never smile at me late at night
Laugh out loud when we get it right
You can't get loose if there's too much light
You never smile like a lover
(Try a little harder) I can't live with you baby
(Harder) Can't live without it.
(Try a little harder) And sometimes I believe in love
But sometimes I doubt it
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Bridge:

But your [Am]life [G]goes [F]on
Like a broken-down [Am]carousel
[G]  Where somebody [F]left the music on
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Guitar Solo:

| | | |
[Am]             [Am/G]     [F]             [F/G]    [Am]             [Am/G]     [F]             [F/G]    [Am]   I was hopin' you were the one[Am/G]
[F]   I was hopin' you were the one[F/G]
[Am]   I was hopin' you were the one[Am/G]
[F]   I was hopin' you were the one[F#dim]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------This just repeats 	G	C

You never move like you used to do
Pour it out when you're feelin' blue
Somebody must have put some pain on you
You never cry like a lover
You never cry like a lover
You never cry like a lover
Cry (You never cry like a lover)
You never cry (Cry like a lover)
Come on and cry (You never cry like a lover)
(Cry like a lover)
Cry (You never cry like a lover)
(Cry like a lover)
(You never cry like a lover)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here's the electric part to You Never Cry Like a Lover.

Bernie has some great riffs in here, and I don't know
if I've got them all right, but I tried. Good luck!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------This is the intro, played the second time through the intro chords.

Variations of this are played during each chorus, just play around
with it to get it. It shouldn't be too hard.
