Abraham Lincoln
Got me to think'in
How every person is born to be free
He delivered his proclamation
That brought about the emancipation
To end this nation's scourge of slavery.

Born in 1809 in frontier Kentucky

This world you know it sure was lucky

To see Abe Lincoln walk across its stage.

From his youth he loved to read and to share a good joke

He worked hard in the fields and on a river boat

And he grew up to be a great leader and a sage.

 

Well aquainted with hardship and sorrow

Why the righteous suffer, everbody would like to know

But Abraham he persevered, no nothing could keep him down

And his heart, with kindness overflowed ...

 

Abraham, Abraham
He saw what was fly'in and he took a stand
To uphold human rights and dignity
He saved the union but he paid the price
Some dirty little coward went and took his life
Now his soul shines bright for all eternity.

Abraham Lincoln
Got me to think'in
How every person is born to be free.
