YOUNG ABE LINCOLN Don Cornell Raised up in Kentucky, in a cabin cold and bare Readin by the fireside, he got his learning there Earned his keep by splittin logs, he grew so lean and strong He could fight against a bully Or could right a mighty wrong Young Abe Lincoln, loved all the people Oh! What a wond'rous man was he What a plain, what a humble man was he Then he went to Springfield, started practicin the law Folks began to know his name, from Maine to Arkansas But when the people called him into politics, he went Cause he had a date with destiny to be the president When he was elected, o'er his country to preside Rich or poor, to ev'ryone, his door was open wide And when he felt the sorrow of a nation in distress Whe he said will live forever in the Gettysburg Address Then, on dark and fateful night, that hist'ry wil recall He went to the theater in his silk hat and his shawl There a shot was fired by a scoundrel known as Booth and Abe Lincoln died, because he stood for liberty and truth Young Abe Lincoln, loved all the people Oh! What a wond'rous man was he Gave his life, so that people could be free Down in Washington, there stands a monument today People come to honor him from near and far away And though it's nigh a century, that he's been dead and gone His truth goes marching on
