"I Can't Tell You Why" is a song from the Eagles which appeared on their 1979 album The Long Run. The song was written by Timothy B. Schmit, Glenn Frey, and Don Henley, and was the first Eagles song to feature Schmit on lead vocals.
In the 1980 promotional video for the song, Schmit (on bass guitar) is accompanied by Frey (electric piano), Henley (drums), Don Felder (electric guitar and guitar solos), and Joe Walsh (organ), along with Joe Walsh's touring sideman Joe Vitale (synthesizer). The studio version became a Top 10 hit in April 1980, reaching #8 and also peaked at number 3 on the Adult Contemporary chart. "I Can't tell You Why" also appears in live versions on Eagles Live in 1980 and Hell Freezes Over in 1994.
