The Lyrics

(hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
(hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
(hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)

every day this man screwed up and blundered
tryin' to make this land find harmony
maybe he should die, i often wondered
what's so wrong with slavery ?
and when the southern states surrendered
it made...a sorehead of me

ooh (hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
my aim could not be better
(my gun was crappy, but that's all i brought)
through the door, i spring...the bullet rings
(there together...with his lady love)
i know the act upset her
(hate abe lincoln and i'm playin' rough)

first, i'm climbin' up, and then down, i'm goin' (down, i'm goin' )
guess i kinda stumbled on my way
wouldn't be surprised if my limp is showin' (is it showin" ?)
sorer every minute, but i couldn't stay
and so i hit the ground and walked on
and its absurd...how i got away, now

ooh (hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
well, i hung around and stalked him
(i was unhappy and his ass, i sought)
now, his life will end...he cannot mend
(someday soon, the south will rise above)
i'm really glad that abe's gone
(people, i just did it for the land i love)

ooh...what a bad bad man, i shot
it meant to me, a lot

(hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
the country will do better
(i set a trap...he never even fought)
a quite simple thing...to kill the "king"
(so obnoxious...so i knocked him off)
some think that i'm a traitor
(hate abe lincoln...if you hate me, tough !)

(hate abe lincoln and that's why i shot)
twas not an act of treason
(i was unhappy...couldn't take a lot)
i'm a happy man, now that lincoln's gone

Sung by John Wilkes Booth as he went down in flames in that barn.

The South and Booth both got what they deserved. Five Lincoln-head pennies.
