Lyin' Eyes


by The Eagles (Don Henley/G. Frey)
( G - - - / Gmaj7 - - - / C - - - /   / Am - - - /   / D - - - /   //)

 V1:	City girls just seem to find out early
How to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man and she won't have to worry
She'll dress up all in lace and go in style

G - - - / Gmaj7 - - - / C - - - /   / Am - - - /   / D - - - /   /
       [1]
G - - - / Gmaj7 - - - / C - - - /   / Am - - - / C - - - / G - - - /   //

 V2:	Late at night her big old house gets lonely
I guess every form of refuge has it's price
And it breaks her heart to think her love as only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice
[2] 
Am - - - / C - - - / G - - -  / C - D //

 V3:	So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who is feeling down
But he knows where she's going, yeah she's leavin'
She is heading for the cheatin' side of town
[3]
Am - - - / C - - - / G - - C / G - - - //

 C:	You can't hide those lyin' eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you'd realize
There ain't no way to hide you lyin' eyes

G - - - / C - - - /G - - C / G - - - / Em - - - / Bm - - - / Am - - - / D - - - /
G - - - / Gmaj7 - - - / C - - - / A - - - / Am - - - / D - - - / (Intro)

 V2:	On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

 V3:	She rushes to his arms, they fall together
She whispers that it's only for a while
She swears that soon she'll be coming back forever
She goes away and leaves him with a smile   (Chorus)

 V2:	She gets up and pours herself a strong one
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
Another night it's gonna be a long one
She draws a shade and hangs her head to cry

 V1:	She wonders how it ever got this crazy
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy
She's so far gone she feels just like a fool

 V3:	My, oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
You said it so well, so carefully
Ain't it funny how you knew life didn't change things
You're still the same old girl you used to be   (Chorus)
