Abraham Lincoln

words and music by David Kerner                                                


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.


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.
