      About "That's the News"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "That's the News"

      Suddenly it's over, the war is fin'lly done.
      Soldiers in the desert sand, still clingin' to a gun.
      No-one is the winner an' everyone must lose.
      Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

      Suddenly celebrity is somethin' back in style.
      Back to runnin' tabloid for a while.
      Pain's almost everywhere, the whole world's got the blues.
      Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

      That's the news, that's the news.
      That's the ever-lovin', blessed, headline news.
      Someone's missin;' in Modesto, an' it's sad about the clues.
      Suddenly the war is over: that's the news.

      Instrumental break.

      Suddenly the cost of war is somethin' out of sight.
      Lost a lotta heroes in the fight.
      Politicians do all the talkin': soldiers pay the dues.
      Suddenly the war is over, that's the news.

      That's the news, that's the news.
      That's the ever-lovin', blessed, headline news.
      Politicians do all the talkin': soldiers pay the dues.
      Suddenly the war is over, that's the news.
