How to play Tequila Sunrise by The Eagles. This is a beginner to intermediate level song. One you’ll surely enjoy playing. Don’t forget to use the video AB loop to help you nail the rhythms.

According to SongFacts: Glenn Frey and Don Henley wrote this song together, and Frey sang lead. Along with “Desperado,” it was one of two songs they came up with the first week that they started writing together.

Note: No capo is needed if your guitar is standard tuned. Trent’s guitar is tuned 1/2 step down.

Tequila Sunrise Lyrics
It’s another tequila sunrise
Starin’ slowly ‘cross the sky
Said goodbye
He was just a hired hand
Workin’ on the dreams he planned to try
The days go by
Ev’ry night when the sun goes down
Just another lonely boy in town
And she’s out runnin’ ’round
She wasn’t just another woman
And I couldn’t keep from comin’ on
It’s been so long
Oh and it’s a hollow feelin’
When it comes down to dealin’ friends
It never ends
Take another shot of courage
Wonder why the right words never come
You just get numb
It’s another tequila sunrise
This old world still looks the same
Another frame
