The Lyrics

welcome, jack
you screamed as the shots rang out
welcome, jack
saw your pained ol' face as you thrashed about
well the blame and the names have been tossed around
but the question remains as who shot ya down

who'd have thought they'd kill ya
(who'd have thought they'd kill ya)
with lead, they did fill ya
(with lead, they did fill ya)
yeah, we think its a plot
from the way that you were shot
welcome, jack
welcome, jack...welcome, jack...welcome, jack
welcome, jack...welcome, jack...welcome, jack

welcome, jack
seems dallas is...not your friend
welcome, jack...welcome, jack
and i'm riled...when i think...how they did ya in
and i know what a scene that it must have been
you were put on a plane and sent home again

who'd have thought they'd kill ya
(who'd have thought they'd kill ya)
with lead, they did fill ya
(with lead, they did fill ya)
yeah, we think its a plot
from the way that you were shot
welcome, jack
welcome, jack...welcome, jack...welcome, jack
welcome, jack...welcome, jack...welcome, jack
welcome, jack...welcome, jack...welcome, jack
