There's A New Kid In Town

**Capo 2 for George's key**

Intro: D  G  D  D  A  D

D                                       G  D
We're looking for the king, the new Messia-h
D                                  G  D  A
We're following the star, shining bri-ghter
Bm   A             G
Old man won't you help us if you can
Em7                        Asus        A
He shook his head, but he pointed his hand

There's a new kid in town
        F#m7        G               D
And he's lying in a manger down the road
There's a new kid in town
         F#m7         G        Bm            E  E7
But he's just another baby I suppose, Heaven knows
         G               A               D
There's a new kid in town, here in Bethlehem

D  G  D  D  A  D

D                                     G  D
I see you've travelled far, bearing treasures
D                                            G   D  A
You say these gifts are for, the new king's pleasu--re
Bm    A     G
I've heard that a king might come
Em7                         Asus  A
But up til now there hasn't been one
