Abraham Lincoln
Song For Teaching American History - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley


This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's The American Way


Lyrics:

Abraham.....
He’s our man....
Abraham .......
Lincoln was the 16th president
A back-woods country boy
Practiced law in Illinois
He appeared on the scene
When the U.S. had a need
Democracy to save
He soon showed us the way

Abraham.....
He’s our man....
Abraham .......
Lincoln was the 16th president
Tall, lanky, Honest Abe
‘Railsplitter’ was his nickname
Storyteller extraordinaire
Lawyer, politician fair
He failed in all enterprise
Yet we see life through his eyes....
He loved books and chose to read
His mind saw a constant need
Self-improvement was his game
Even after he’d attained
The highest office in the land
Showing us that we, too, can.

Abraham.....
He’s our man....
Abraham .......
Lincoln was the 16th president
In 1861 the Civil War had just begun and Abraham was President
And he would see there was no resentment
From the vanquished side
His country was his pride.

But an assassin’s gun
Destroyed that hope for everyone
Plunged into a dark despair
We looked for help everywhere
But we came through it all
And we still hear freedom’s call....
And so as we sing of Abe
And think of all the times he talked on fair play,
He would emphasize it
Showing the world all his pride
A self-made, honest man
Showing us that we, too, can.

Abraham.....
He’s our man....
Abraham .......
Lincoln was a great, great President !!!
