Intro: | G | Gmaj7 | C | C | Am | D7 | G | G |

G               Gmaj7            C     Am                            D7
City girls just seem to find out early how to open doors with just a smile
  G                 Gmaj7             C             Am              C              G
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                           D7
Late at night, a big, old house gets lonely, I guess every form of refuge has its price
       G                   Gmaj7             C          Am            C                G    C  D
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only given to a man with hands as cold as ice
       G                  Gmaj7          C           Am                                  D7
So she tells him she must go out for the evening, to comfort an old friend who's feeling down
    G                    Gmaj7          C              Am             C                G     C  G
But he knows where she's going as she's leaving, she's headed for the cheating side of town

          G  C            G  C G         Em  Bm             Am    D
You can't hide your lyin' eyes, and your smile is a thin disguise
             G G7         C  A7       Am              D               G
I thought by now you'd realize, there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes

| G | Gmaj7 | C | C | Am | D7 | G | G |

       G             Gmaj7         C            Am                                 D7
On the other side of town a boy is waiting with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
    G                     Gmaj7       C                Am                 C               G     C  D
She drives on through the night anticipating, cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel
    G             Gmaj7             C           Am                         D7
She rushes to his arms, they fall together, she whispers, "It's only for a while."
    G                          Gmaj7          C         Am             C                 G     C  G
She swears that soon she'll be coming back forever, she pulls away and leaves him with a smile

          G  C            G  C G         Em  Bm             Am    D
You can't hide your lyin' eyes, and your smile is a thin disguise
             G G7         C  A7       Am              D               G
I thought by now you'd realize, there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes

| G | Gmaj7 | C | C | Am | D7 | G | G |

G               Gmaj7           C               Am                                D7
She gets up and pours herself a strong one, and stares out at the stars up in the sky
 G                  Gmaj7      C             Am                  C                 G  C  D
Another night, it's gonna be a long one, she draws the shade and hangs her head to cry
    G              Gmaj7         C          Am                             D7
She wonders how it ever got this crazy, she thinks about a boy she knew in school
    G                Gmaj7            C           Am              C                 G
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy? She's so far gone she feels just like a fool
G             Gmaj7             C                  Am                           D7
My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things, you set it up so well, so carefully
         G              Gmaj7           C                     Am                 C                G  C  G
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things? You're still the same old girl you used to be

          G  C            G  C G         Em  Bm             Am    D
You can't hide your lyin' eyes, and your smile is a thin disguise
             G G7         C  A7       Am              D               G    Gmaj7
I thought by now you'd realize, there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes
      Am              D               G    Gmaj7
there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes.
Am               D               G    Gmaj7  Am  D  G
Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes
