Dewey Cox – (Have You Heard The News) Dewey Cox Died lyrics

Long black hearse, clear blue sky
Preacher says his words, grown men cry
Women start to faint, dark gray sky
Simple wooden box, preacher asks, why

Hey, have you heard the news?
Dewey Cox died

Put him in the ground, start to shovel dirt
Grown men turn away, cannot bear the hurt
You fell out of a tree, fell upon his head
Rushed him to a hospital, there pronounced dead

Hey, have you heard the news?
Dewey Cox died
No, say it isn't so, Dewey Cox died

Flowers everywhere, children cry
Guitar on the ground, God himself asks why
Long black hearse, clear blue sky
Preacher says his words, grown men cry

Hey, have you heard the news?
Dewey Cox died
Why?
Hey, have you heard the news?
Dewey Cox died today

Dead
