Lyin' Eyes (City girls just seem to find out early . . )
I tried the Cowpie site where I found other Eagle songs, but not this one.

Although Sorcha's link has the chords, it doesn't have all the verses - see Spaw's link or Phillipa's second link for the complete set.

Just in case those links expire, here are the lyrics. Cowpie has the chords.

LYIN' EYES   (Eagles)

              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.

              Late at night this big old house gets lonely.
              I guess every form refuge has its price,
              And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
              Given to a man with hands as cold as ice.

              So she tells him she must go out for the evening
              To comfort an old friend who's feeling down,
              But he knows where she's going as she's leaving--
              She is headed for the cheatin' side of town.

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

              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.

              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,
              Then she pulls away and leaves him with a smile.

              (Chorus)

              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 the shade and hangs her head and cries.

              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.

              My, oh my, you sure know know how to arrange things!
              You set it up so well, so carefully.
              Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things?
              You're still the same old girl you used to be.

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

Lying Eyes

(C)City girls just (Cmaj7)seam to find out (F)early,
(Dmin)How to open doors with just a (G)smile.
A (C)rich old man and (Cmaj7)she won't have to (F)worry,
She'll (Dmin)dress up all in (G)lace and go in (C)style.
Late at night that big old house gets lonely.
I guess every form of refuge has its price.
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice.

So she tells him, she must go out for the evening,
To comfort an old friend who's feeling down.
But he knows where she's going, as she's leaving,
She's headed for the cheatin' side of town.

You can't (C)hide (F)your lying (C)eyes,
And your (Amin)smile(Emin) is a damned dis(G)guise.
I thought by (C)now(Cmaj7) you'd rea(F)lise,
There (Dmin)ain't no way to (G)hide your lying (C)eyes.

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

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 pulls away and greets him with a smile.

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 the shade and hangs her head to cry.

songs2play - I think the consensus is that it's "thin disguise", not "damned disguise".

Cheers,
Michael
