The Lyrics

They say you're tall and I won't grow
You have that hat even I know
And I know what you say is true
Since you're honest, so Lincoln I got you

I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe

Oh you were once a president
Before you died, the theatre you went
I know that's sad, because you got shot
It's too bad the Booth had chose to kill you not

I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe

I got cherries in the spring
A log cabin is darling
At Ghettysburg, you're around
And if you're talking, applause is the sound

Don't let them say your beard's too long
It hides your face, with that you can't go wrong
But look the pennies look just fine
And you look good on dollars that are five

I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe

I got you to run the land
I got you to lend a hand
I got you set slaves free
I got you for liberty
I got you to do what's right
I got you to change the light
I got you, you're so tall though
I got you to sit in stone

I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe
I got you, Abe
