Reba McEntire performs "Whoever's in New England"

"Whoever's in New England" is a song written by Kendal Franceschi and Quentin Powers, and recorded by American country music entertainer Reba McEntire. It was released in March 1986 as the first single and title track from the album Whoever's in New England. The song was considered one of her signature and breakthrough singles.

The song was written in the voice of a Southern woman who believes her husband is having an affair during his business trips up north (the video clearly shows him having at least an emotional affair with a coworker), but pledges that she will remain available to him when "whoever's in New England's through with you."  The song was inspired by Barry Manilow's 1970s Pop hit, "Weekend in New England". The 2007 Sugarland hit "Stay" was, in turn, inspired by "Whoever's in New England", and tells the story from the perspective of the mistress.

Reba McEntire - Whoever's In New England Lyrics

 

You spend an awful lot of time in Massachusetts

Seems Like every other week you've got a meeting waiting there

Business must be booming or could something else

Be moving in the air up there

You say that its important for our future

An executive on his way up has got to play the part

Each time duty calls you got to give it all

You've got with all your heart

When whoever's in New England is through with you

And Boston finds better things to do

You know its not too late 'cause you'll always have a place to go

When whoever's in New England's through with you

I hear the winter time up north can last forever

I've been told its beautiful to see this time of year

They say the snow can blind you till the world you left behind

Just disappears I hear

I packed your bags and left them in the hallway

But before you leave again there's just one thing you outta know

When the icy winds blow through you remember that its me

Who feels the cold most of all

When whoever's in New England is through with you

And Boston finds better things to do

You know its not too late 'cause you'll always have a place to go

When whoever's in New England's through with you
