Mr Lincoln-crd  Hank Williams

     [A]           [E]                    [D]Mr. Lincoln I wish you were here
The R[A]epublics changed alot in a hun[E]dred years[D]
I do[A]n't think its wor[E]king like you planned [D]
Mr L[A]incoln we sure c[E]ould use a hand[D]
I just r[D]ead the headlines in the Na[A]shville News[G]
And I wis[D]h i made this up but im afr[A]aid its true[G]
Cause a man w[D]as murdered for his money i[A]n the street[G]
He was takin[D] his wife to a nice plac[A]e to eat[G]
When they [D]caught the man he did 23 months of time[A] [G]
He pl[D]ead insanity like they do now all [A]the time[G]
Sir w[D]hat would you have done in 1859[A] [G]
now if you sho[D]ot someone sir you can get o[A]ff scott free[G]
its the lat[D]est thing mr Lincoln[A] can you believe[G]
Now they su[D]e the manufactures of t[A]he guns[G]
aint the la[D]w changed alot sinc[A]e 1861[E]
Repeat chorus
I just [D]heard the new story on[A] the radio[G]
they let da[D]ngerous men outta prison now yes[A] sir im afraid its so[G]
cause theyre over[D]crowded and it was only his fifth of[A]fense[G]
      [D]                              [A] [G]and this time hes killed someone does that make any sense
Now my lawy[D]er called me about a nuisa[A]nce case[G]
Cause ever[D]ybody sues over any little thin[A]g these days[G]
well at[D] least we're right all we gotta do is[A] tell the truth [G]
he said youre livin[D]g in the past you ro[A]mantic fool[G]
i said you got [D]that right i lean tow[A]ard the older ways[G]
And theres damn [D]few back woods lawyers left[A] today[E]
repeat chorus 2x
