Johnny Horton - Young Abe Lincoln Lyrics




Well, he lived in a cabin way down by the creek
He ran through the dust in his bare feet
But they didn't know that one fine day
That he would rule this U.S.A.
And be the best leader in all the land
Yes, Young Abe Lincoln make a tall, tall man
(Young Abe Lincoln make a tall tall man)

He walked many miles to school every day
And no kind of weather could keep him away
A learnin' to read and a learnin' to write
He whipped many men in a wrestlin' fight
He whipped many of 'em with just one hand
Yes, Young Abe Lincoln make a tall, tall man
(Young Abe Lincoln make a tall, tall man)

Now he was admitted to the lawyer's bar
People sought his help from near and far
Ha could talk a country mile in an old court room
Make a man laugh whose life was doomed
He out talked Douglas or fancy Dan
Yes, Young Abe Lincoln make a tall, tall man
(Young Abe Lincoln make a tall, tall man)

We had a big war while he was President
Finally won with the U.S. Grant
He heard both sides of the battle cry
He hated to see those soldiers die
He hated to fight his own south land
Yes, Young Abe Lincoln made a tall, tall man
(Young Abe Lincoln made a tall, tall man)
Yes, Young Abe Lincoln made a tall, tall man
