The Lyrics

Here's to another legend...Walter Cronkite.
So long, Walter Cronkite.
I can't believe your words have gone too soon
I barely heard his tune
That soon
That soon...

I heard about, Walter Cronkite.
All of those nights he read the news like new.
We recognize his call
After all
After all....

Anchormen may come and
Anchormen may go and
Take their work without a care.
When the news is dull,
I'll think that he is there.

Flute Solo

Anchormen may come and
Anchormen may go and
Take their work without a care.

So long, Walter Cronkite.
There will never be another you.
And that's the way it is.
It is
It is....

Cronkite-And that's the way it is.

Sir Walter always made me to feel 'safe & proud' of the USA.
