John Anderson – Your Lying Blue Eyes Lyrics

Your lying blue eyes used to charm me
Hypnotize me through and through
Like a fool, Lord, I’ve been dreaming
Your lying blue eyes just told on you

All those stories I’ve been hearing
I wouldn’t believe that they were true
But just this morning over coffee
Your lying blue eyes just told on you

Your lying blue eyes used to charm me
Hypnotize me through and through
Like a fool, Lord, I’ve been dreaming
Your lying blue eyes just told on you

For a long time I have loved you
And I’ve thought that you loved me too
Now all my questions have been answered
Your lying blue eyes just told on you

Your lying blue eyes used to charm me
Hypnotize me through and through
Like a fool, Lord, I’ve been dreaming
Your lying blue eyes just told on you
Your lying blue eyes just told on you
