There's A New Kid In Town (feat. Keith Whitley) lyrics

We're looking for the King the new messiah
We're following the star shinging brighter
Old man won't you help us if you can
He shook his head but he pointed with his hand
There's a new kid in town and he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town but he's just another baby I suppose
Heaven knows there's a new kid in town here in Bethlehem
[ keyboards ]
I see you travelled far brearing treasures
You say these gifts are for the new king's pleasures
I've heard that a king might come but up till now there hasn't been one
There's a new kid in town...
[ mandolin ]
There's a new kid in town...
