      About "Six O'Clock News"

      Lyrics for John Prine - "Six O'Clock News"

      Wanda had a baby in nineteen fifty one.
      The father was stranger and a stranger was the son.
      Call that child James Lewis, call these rooms a home.
      Changing all them diapers polish all that chrome.
      See'mon, baby, spend the night with me
      All around the schoolyard playing all the games
      Running, laughing back and forth the kid with two first names
      Stranger in the closet, lock the diary
      The past is running faster singing harmony
      See'mon, baby, spend the night with me
      "God bless this kitchen" said the knick-knack shelf
      "The dinner's almost ready Go and wash yourself"
      Jimmy's growing up now and Wanda's growing old
      The time is growin' shorter the nights are long and cold
      See'mon, baby, spend the night with me
      Sneaking in the closet and through the diary
      Now, don't you know all he saw was all there was to see
      The whole town saw Jimmy on the six o'clock news
      His brains were on the sidewalk and blood was on his shoes
      See'mon, baby, spend the night with me
      See'mon, baby, spend the night with me
