You feel bad, but not bad enough
You know you had it coming 'cause you played so rough
Back over your shoulder got an icy chill
Man, you thought you'd get away with it
Now you know you never will

Somebody, somebody
You got a feelin' somebody's following you

No one knows 'bout the times you had
You've been so evil; you know, you've been so bad
There's a devil to pay for what you put them through
And you got a feeling somebody's following you

Somebody, somebody
You got a feelin' somebody's following you
Somebody, somebody
You got a feelin' somebody's following you

There's a jack-o-lantern moon in the midnight sky
Somebody gonna live, somebody gonna die
But down in the graveyard on that old tombstone
There's a big black crow and it's callin' you home

Somebody, somebody
You got a feelin' somebody's following you
Somebody, somebody
You got a feelin' somebody's following you
Somebody
You know there's somebody

    My InterpretationI think this song is about Don Felder. Glen Frey never forgave him for the lawsuit he brought against the Eagles, and the first two verses are pretty clear-cut about this, as in 'There's the devil to pay for what you put them through'. In my opinion there's also a hint at Felder's supposed hypocrisy over the Eagles conduct, where Frey points out that Felder was usually a willing participant in the alleged 'good times', as in 'No one knows 'bout the times you had. You know you've been so evil, you know you've been so bad'.
