A crowded main street
The scene was set
The checked out the view
Turned the radio on

Open the case
Assemble the gun
Laid out ready
For the President's run

The world was shocked that fateful day
A young man's life was blown away, away
In Dallas one pm

White hot lead in the back of the head
Screaming confusion
Shots ring the air
Cadillac racing
Cops on the run
They couldn't believe that the President's hit

The shooting's done
Assassins run
Is he dead?
No one will say

Around the world
The news was flashed
We sat and watched
Your tragic history

The world was shocked that fateful day
A young man's life was blown away, away
In Dallas one pm

    General CommentClassic Saxon song about the Kennedy assassination. Interesting that a song so archetypical to British heavy metal is about an important event in American history.

    Also, the correct line is "they couldn't believe the president's shot."
