The Lyrics

when Boothy said.. now I'm gonna do me some thinkin..
and after contrivin' he shot Abe Lincoln

when I heard the story of that tragic place
when old Abe Lincoln got shot in the face
it's sad but it's true but I will say
it changed the world on that fateful day

see American cousin, get all dressed up
and off to the show, Wilkes-Booth showed up
wants to end a fine life Abraham's fall
internally strifed, that was all

with a hand gun blast he ended it all
the president felt that hot lead ball
he gasped for breath and cried for air
as Wilkes-Booth then ran out of there

he led a good time for our nice nation
one of the best with emancipatio
why he was killed I just don't know
confererate heds should still hang low

he thought Abe's head is the target you see
and one big man I think I'll be

All of a sudden in a wink of an eye
our once great leader just had to die
and the the man jumped on the stage
and yelled i latin with a rage...

ran off the stage with a broken limb
a twelve day chase and they corndered him
he ran but then he'd run no more
they shot him dead inside that door

Now, all you think I'v lost my sense
by writing songs of dead presidents
They said, slow down, it's what I got
if I don't write my brain will rot

this shortened version of a one hit song
will seem just bad if I stretch it long
so soon I will end with a big diversion
as you take a 12 verser as an ten verse version

so think for a while and be thankful son
for the constitution and your right to a gun
they shoulda shot back, or so I was thinkin
on that fateful night when he shot......Abe... LIncoln
