THE BEST OF MY LOVE (Don Henley, Glenn Frey, J.D. Souther)
[Play the first C's as x30000 -> x32010, and the Dm's as xx0030 -> xx0231...
it'll make sense if you try it.]

[Each chord is one measure]

C   C   Dm   Dm

   C                C             Dm                      Dm
   Every night, I'm lying in bed, holding you close in my dreams
   C                      C                        Dm                    Dm
   Thinking about all the things that we said, and coming apart at the seams
Em                    Dm           Em                 F/G
   We try to talk it over, but the words come out too rough
     C                       Dm                       C     G7
   I know you were trying to give me the best of your love

   C                    C                 Dm                       Dm
   Beautiful faces, and loud empty places, look at the way that we live
   C                   C                   Dm                     Dm
   Wasting our time on cheap talk and wine, left us so little to give
       Em                        Dm                   Em                    F/G 
  That same old crowd was like a cold dark cloud that we could never rise above
       C                   Dm                      C     G7
   But here in my heart, I give you the best of my love

              C            C     Dm                      Dm
   Oh-oh-oh ohhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love
              C            C     Dm                      Dm
   Oh-oh-oh ohhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love

Fm7          Fm7                     C            C
   I'm going back in time and it's a sweet dream
            Fm7                     Fm7                     Dm    G7
   It was a quiet night and I would be all right if I could go on sleeping

       C               C                 Dm                      Dm
   But every morning I wake up and worry, what's gonna happen today?
   C                        C                     Dm                     Dm
   You see it your way, and I see it mine, but we both see it slipping away
Em                             Dm         Em                      Dm   G7
   You know we always had each other baby, I guess that wasn't enough; o-o-ohh
       C                   Dm                      C     G
   But here in my heart, I give you the best of my love

            C              C     Dm                      Dm
   Oh-oh-oh ohhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love
            C              C     Dm                      Dm
   Oh-oh-oh ohhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love

   [repeat & fade]
