Take It East Chord Chart by The Eagles


Welcome to my Save Tonight chord chart by Eagle Eye Cherry. This was a request from one of our users so I hope you enjoy. Very simple song in that it's the same 4 chords over and over again: Am, F, C, G. If you do now know how to do a full F bar chord or are not capable of it sounding good just quite yet, try the simple Fmaj7 below. This can be used in place of the F chord.

The tricky part about this song is that it's very fast.
