About this tab version
I checked out the other tabs and none of them seemed to have all the right chords, so from the other tabs, an Eagles song book and by listening to the song be played, I'm 99% sure these are the correct chords :). Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
At the start of the chorus, for one beat of the second G chord, the note C is added at the first fret of the
B string, making the chord a Gsus4. It's hard to explain but if you listen to the song it's easy to pick up.

The G chords at the end of the verses carry on into the start of the next verse. However at the end the
verses before the chorus there is a 1 bar pause in the music, again it'll be easier to work out by listening
to the song :)

Standard tuning.

   G     Gmaj7 Gsus4 C     Am    A     Bm    D7    D
e|-3-----2-----3-----0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-------------------------|
B|-0-----0-----1-----1-----1-----2-----3-----1-----3-------------------------|
G|-0-----0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----4-----2-----2-------------------------|
D|-0-----0-----0-----2-----2-----2-----4-----0-----0-------------------------|
A|-2-----x-----2-----3-----0-----0-----2-----0-----0-------------------------|
E|-3-----3-----3-----x-----x-----x-----x-----x-----x-------------------------|

The intro has the same progression as the verses:
G, Gmaj7, C(x2), Am(x2), D7(x2), G, Gmaj7, C(x2), Am, C, G(x2).

G               Gmaj7            C
City girls just seem to find out early 
Am                            D7 
How to open doors with just a smile
  G                Gmaj7             C
A rich old man and she won't have to worry
       Am              C              G
She'll dress up all in lace and go in style 

                Gmaj7              C
Late at night a big old house gets lonely
        Am                           D7
I guess every form of refuge has its price
       G                   Gmaj7             C
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only 
      Am            C                G
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice 

                          Gmaj7          C
So she tells him she must go out for the evening 
   Am                                  D7
To comfort an old friend who's feelin' down 
    G                    Gmaj7          C
But he knows where she's goin' as she's leavin' 
       Am             C                G
She is headed for the cheatin' side of town 

          G         C             G      Gsus4 G
You can't hide________ your lyin' eyes 
         Em         Bm              Am         D
And your smile________ is a thin disguise
             G        Gmaj7        C        A 
I thought by now________ you'd realize________
      Am              D              G
There ain't no way to hide your lyin eyes 

                     Gsus4         C
On the other side of town a boy is waiting
     Am                                 D7
with fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
    G                     Gmaj7       C
She drives on through the night anticipating 
          Am                 C               G 
'Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel 

                  Gmaj7             C
She rushes to his arms; they fall together
    Am                           D7
She whispers that it's only for awhile 
    G                          Gmaj7          C
She swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever
    Am             C                 G
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile 

          G         C             G      Gsus4 G
You can't hide________ your lyin' eyes 
         Em         Bm              Am         D
And your smile________ is a thin disguise
             G        Gmaj7        C        A 
I thought by now________ you'd realize________
      Am              D              G
There ain't no way to hide your lyin eyes
 
                Gmaj7           C
She gets up and pours herself a strong one, 
    Am                                D7
And stares out at the stars up in the sky
 G                  Gmaj7      C
Another night, it's gonna be a long one
    Am                  C                 G
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry

                   Gmaj7         C
She wonders how it ever got this crazy
    Am                             D7
She thinks about a boy she knew in school
    G                Gmaj7            C 
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy? 
      Am              C                 G
She's so far gone she feels just like a fool
 
              Gmaj7              C
My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things
    Am                           D7
You set it up so well, so carefully 
         G              Gmaj7           C
Ain't it funny how your new life didn't change things? 
       Am             C                    G
You're still the same old girl you used to be

          G         C             G      Gsus4 G
You can't hide________ your lyin' eyes 
         Em         Bm              Am         D
And your smile________ is a thin disguise
             G        Gmaj7        C        A 
I thought by now________ you'd realize________
      Am              D              G               Gmaj7
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    
Honey, you can't hide your lyin' eyes

On the other side of town a bov is waiting ... What's with the Gsus4? Seems to be the only place it appears.
