Lewis Calvin "Lew" DeWitt (March 12, 1938 - August 15, 1990) was an American country music singer and composer.
For most of his career DeWitt sang tenor for The Statler Brothers. Songs he wrote for the group include "Flowers on the Wall," "Things," "Since Then," "The Strand," "The Movies," and "Chet Atkins' Hand." He retired from the group in 1982 due to health problems stemming from Crohn's disease, from which he had suffered since adolescence. (Jimmy Fortune subsequently assumed DeWitt's place in the group as tenor.)
DeWitt made a brief comeback as a solo artist, releasing two albums: On My Own (1985) and Here to Stay (1986). He worked on a third album for Compleat Records, but before he could finish it, his health problems resurfaced. He died of heart and kidney failure at the age of 52. "Flowers on the Wall" is a song made famous by country music group The Statler Brothers. Written by the group's original tenor, Lew DeWitt, the song peaked in popularity in January 1966, spending four weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles chart, and reaching No. 4 on the Hot 100 chart.
In the years since its release, "Flowers on the Wall".
