The Long Run Sessions, 1979

In 1979, the Eagles pulled back the curtain on their world and gave us a fantastic glimpse into their recording process as they recorded the iconic, ‘The Long Run’ and believe us – they did not disappoint! This exclusive video features rare, behind the scenes footage of the guys as they record this single from their 6th studio album The Long Run; the first without bass player Randy Meisner, The Long Run was met with critical acclaim and even tossed Led Zeppelin’s In Through The Out Door out of its #1 slot on the Billboard charts!

Along with ‘The Long Run’, the Eagles’ 1979 album The Long Run yielded two other hit classics: ‘Heartache Tonight’ and ‘I Can’t Tell You Why’.

Watching the Eagles working so diligently in studio to create what would eventually become a masterpiece is a fantastic reminder of the blood, sweat, and tears that one of the hardest working bands in music puts into all that they do!

+ The Long Run lyrics +

I used to hurry a lot, I used to worry a lot
I used to stay out till the break of day
Oh, that didn’t get it, it was high time I quit it
I just couldn’t carry on that way

Oh, I did some damage
I know it’s true
Didn’t know I was so lonely
Till I found you

You can go the distance
We’ll find out in the long run
(In the long run)
We can handle some resistance
If our love is a strong one
(Is a strong one)

People talkin’ about us
They got nothin’ else to do
When it all comes down
We will still come through

In the long run
Ooh, I want to tell you
It’s a long run

You know I don’t understand
Why you don’t teach yourself better
Do the crazy things that you do
‘Cause all the debutantes in Houston, baby
Couldn’t hold a candle to you

Did you do it for love?
Did you do it for money?
Did you do it for spite?
Did you think you had to, honey?

Who is gonna make it?
We’ll find out in the long run
(In the long run)
I know we can take it
If our love is a strong one
(Is a strong one)

Well, we’re scared
But we ain’t shakin’
We’re kind of bent
But we ain’t breakin’

In the long run
Ooh, I want to tell you
It’s a long run
In the long run, in the long run

Gonna find out, ooh find out
Long, long, long, long
Long, long, long, long
Ooh, run, run, run, baby
Run, run, baby

Long, long, long, long
