I t was the Fall of Sevuhteefie and the US charts were alive with “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Island Girl,” “Miracles,” “My Little Town” and other bittersweet fare. The Eagles had topped the charts earlier with the title track to One of These Nights and “Lyin’ Eyes” nearly replicated the feat, falling just shy at #2. The flip side is the cranky “Too Many Hands” from the same album. Both tracks demonstrate the “cowboys in los angeles” perspective that typified The Eagles’ songs. There’s more at Songfacts, including an interesting theory behind the song’s origins. In 1980, it appears that "Lyin' Eyes" was pressed into service alongside the hit "Lookin' For Love" by Johnny Lee, as both tracks appeared in the film "Urban Cowboy."
