Mr. Lincoln died in Ford’s Theatre,
While attending a play,
No one could have even guessed,
The events that would unfold that sad day,
It was John Wilkes Booth, an actor,
Who didn’t want President Lincoln alive,
He shot and fatally killed him,
It was April 15th in the year 1865.
Now his face is on the penny,
So if you see one, stop and pick it up,
Put it in your pocket,
Maybe Abe will bring you good luck!
He’s on the five dollar bill too,
So if you really get to thinkin’,
Instead of giving someone a "High Five"
You can give them a "High Lincoln"!
