Abe Lincoln Song Lyrics:
(The rap lyrics are below.)

(Spoken-Gettysburg Address)
Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers
brought forth on this continent a new nation,
conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition
that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war,
testing whether that nation or any nation
so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met on a great battlefield of that war.
We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place
for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.
It is all together fitting and proper that we should do this.


(Verse 1)
1809 Lincoln was born. His parents were poor.
In a cabin made of logs, slept in a pile of leaves.
He walked two miles to get to school.
He was eager to learn.
His momma died when he was nine,
but still grew strong and wise.

(Chorus)
Abraham Lincoln, was called Honest Abe.
He was the sixteenth president of the United States.
Civil War begun, 1861 between the north and south.
North thought slavery should end, south thought it shouldn't.
Two years went by, thousands of soldiers died,
Lincoln wrote Emancipation Proclamation.
It paved the way to end slavery.
He gave the Gettysburg Address.
It honored men for their bravery.

(Verse 2)
Abraham studied at night, and read by firelight.
Read of George Washington, read the Bible, lived honest and right.
Grew up tall and studied law, became a lawyer in just three years.
Moved to Springfield, Illinois and married Mary Todd.

(Spoken-Gettysburg Address)
But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate-we cannot consecrate-
we cannot hallow-this ground.
The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here,
have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here,
but it can never forget what they did here.
It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which
they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.
It is rather for us to be dedicated to the great task remaining before us-
that from these honored dead we take increased devotion-to that cause
for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that
we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain-
that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom-
and that government of the people, by the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.

(Verse 3)
1858 he ran for Senate. But lost to Douglas.
Two years later they ran again.
Lincoln won President.
Elected again, 1864. '65 the war came to an end
then Booth assassinated him.
Abraham Lincoln was called Honest Abe. (Honest Abe)
He was the sixteenth president of the United States. (United States)
Abraham Lincoln signed to free the slaves. (Freed the slaves) Repeat
Abraham Lincoln was called Honest Abe.

Abe Lincoln Rap Lyrics:

Yo, yo, here we go.
16th president, Abraham Lincoln,
born in Kentucky in a log cabin.
His mom and dad were really poor.
Abe walked two miles to get to school.
Abe walked two miles to get to school.
(clap & snap two times)

His momma died when he was nine,
he still grew up strong and wise.
He studied at night, read by firelight.
He read the Bible, lived honest and right.
He read the Bible, lived honest and right.
(clap & snap two times)

Grew up tall and studied law.
Moved to Illinois, married Mary Todd.
1858 he ran for senate,
but he lost to Stephen Douglas.
Two years later they ran again,
that's when Lincoln won president,
that's when Lincoln won president.
(clap & snap two times)

Wrote Emancipation Proclamation,
it gave slaves their freedom!
Gettysburg Address begins with "Fourscore."
Honors brave men who fought in the war.
1865 when the Civil War was done,
John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln.
John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln.
(clap & snap two times)

Yo, yo, Abraham Lincoln.
Yo, yo, Abraham Lincoln.
(clap & snap two times)
Abraham, Lincoln.
