Black Eyed Man is a 1992 album by Cowboy Junkies.

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

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."
