submitted by mrm123 on 05/19/16 1

"New Kid In Town", written by Don Henley, Glenn Frey and J.D. Souther, is a song by United States rock group Eagles from their 1976 album Hotel California, and the first to feature guitarist Joe Walsh, who had just replaced Bernie Leadon. It was released as the first single from the album, and became a #1 hit in the USA, and #20 in the UK. The single version of the song has an earlier fade-out than the album version does. On 26 February 1977, it reached the Billboard #1. The song features Frey singing the lead vocals, with Don Henley singing main harmony vocals. Randy Meisner plays the guitarrĂ³n mexicano, and Joe Walsh plays the electric piano and organ parts. In 1977, the Eagles won a Grammy Award for Best Arrangement for Voices with "New Kid In Town". On Henley's first solo album, I Can't Stand Still, he references the song by singing the line, "there's a new kid in town" over the rideout of Johnny Can't Read. LYRICS: There's talk on the street; it sounds so familiar Great expectations, everybody's watching you People you meet, they all seem to know you Even your old friends treat you like you're something new Johnny come lately, the new kid in town Everybody loves you, so don't let them down You look in her eyes; the music begins to play Hopeless romantics, here we go again But after awhile, you're lookin' the other way It's those restless hearts that never mend Johnny come lately, the new kid in town Will she still love you when you're not around? There's so many things you should have told her, but night after night you're willing to hold her, Just hold her, tears on your shoulder There's talk on the street, it's there to Remind you, that it doesn't really matter which side you're on. You're walking away and they're talking behind you They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along Where you been lately? There's a new kid in town Everybody loves him, don't they? Now he's holding her, and you're still around Oh, my, my There's a new kid in town just another new kid in town Ooh, hoo Everybody's talking 'bout the new kid in town, Ooh, hoo Everybody's walking' like the new kid in town There's a new kid in town Theres a new kid in town people started walking There's a new kid in town I don't want to hear it There's a new kid in town I don't want to hear it There's a new kid in town There's a new kid in town There's a new kid in town
