Black Eyed Man is the fourth studio album by Cowboy Junkies, released in 1992.

Contents

The album continues the band's evolution from a spare country blues style (exemplified by The Trinity Session (1988)) to a more mainstream country rock style. However, the album was better received by critics than The Caution Horses (1990).

American songwriter Townes Van Zandt wrote "Cowboy Junkies Lament" especially for the band. Michael Timmins returned the favor, penning "Townes' Blues" as a tribute to Van Zandt. The band also cover Van Zandt's "To Live is to Fly" at the end of the album.

John Prine appears as a guest vocalist on "If You Were the Woman and I Was the Man."
