Lin-Manuel Miranda is seen on stage during the "Hamilton" Grammy performance for The 58th Grammy Awards at Richard Rodgers Theater on Feb. 15, 2016 in New York City. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter Tuesday (Dec. 11) to share a cut Hamilton song detailing George Washington’s death.

“Here you go,” he wrote in a tweet containing lyrics to the track. “Cut from Act Two. It comes after Dear Theodosia Reprise, also cut.”

The attached SoundCloud demo has Miranda taking on the roles of the musical's titular character, Burr, Madison and Jefferson: “There is wailing in the street/ Theodosia, stay inside/ What’s the word good man?/ Have you not heard?/ George Washington has died.”

A piano accompanies Miranda’s grieving vocals, which borrows lines from the song “One Last Time" sung by George Washington earlier in the play.

Miranda additionally posted a follow-up tweet containing lyrics that didn't make it into the original screenshot he shared.
