“On The Border” was the Eagles third album, and like their first two, they started recording it in London with producer Glyn Johns. This is the album that “Best of My Love” is on. This time, the band abandoned the sessions and recorded most of the album with Bill Szymczyk. Glyn Johns thought of the Eagles as an acoustic act, and helped them create several hits with this sound, including “Witchy Woman” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling.” The band members, especially Glenn Frey, thought they should be rocking harder, and the Eagles eventually found success with rockers like “Life In The Fast Lane” and “Heartache Tonight.”

This song was one of two that was leftover from the Glyn Johns sessions and included on On The Border, and it became the Eagles first #1 hit.

Lyrics for “Best of My Love”

Every night I’m lyin’ in bed

ADVERTISEMENT

Holdin’ you close in my dreams

Thinkin’ about all the things that we said

And comin’ apart at the seams

We try to talk it over

But the words come out too rough

I know you were tryin’

ADVERTISEMENT

to give me the best of your love

Beautiful faces and loud, empty places

Look at the way that we live

Wastin’ our time on cheap talk and wine

Left us so little to give

That same old crowd

Was like a cold dark cloud

That we could never rise above

But here in my heart I give you the best of my love

Oh sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love, oh

Sweet darlin’, you get the best of my love

I’m goin’ back in time

And it’s a sweet dream

It was a quiet night

And I would be all right

If i could go on sleepin’

But every mornin’

I wake up and worry

What’s gonna happen today

You see it your way

And I see it mine

But we both see it slippin’ away

You know we always had each other baby

I guess that wasn’t enough

Oh, but here in my heart

I give you the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’

You get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’

You get the best of my love

Every night and day,

You get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love

Oh, sweet darlin’ you get the best of my love..

The band, The Eagles.
