    The guys is singing because his lover left him. Second hand news implies that when she hears anything about his life she hears it from a friend or something. My favorite Fleetwood Mac song.

    Actually, I think 'second hand news' refers to the fact that he feels he's now second best and not first and foremost anymore in the mind of the girl.

    The chorus is bow , bow, etc. He is laying in the grass and doing his stuff after he has been made second rate to another lover. The Newspaper is referred to. Put bowwow, newspaper, the grass and doing his stuff together, and it is apparant what the metaphor is. He feels demeaned to the point where he becomes a dog. I am always right. Thank you Spongeman

    Second hand news is yesterday's news as in no longer wanted, needed, or relevant.

    From an interview with a Scottish newspaper in 2009: “Hell no!” the guitarist fires back. “They were true. Yes, they were frank. I wasn’t mincing any words about anything. But they were also offering a choice to her.”

    In Second Hand News he describes his rejection by Nicks, but also — as he sees it — “humorously” offers her the chance to make a booty call: “when times go bad, when times go rough, won’t you lay me down in the tall grass and let me do my stuff…”

    “At first I thought that was a little rude,” says Nicks. “I don’t think I saw a lot of humour. But now I kinda can.”

    A great song. I almost wish it were on Tusk: there are so many of my favorites there already, it would just round out the album a little more.
    Truthfully, there are just enough songs I like from Rumours, that you could take the songs I don't like from Tusk, and swap them one-for-one.
