[Intro]
A          E                    D

Mr. Lincoln I wish you were here
A                  E                     D
The Republics changed alot in a hundred years
A                E                      D
I don't think its working like you planned 
A               E                D
Mr Lincoln we sure could use a hand

[Verse]
D                   A                    G
I just read the headlines in the Nashville News
D                   A                    G
And I wish i made this up but im afraid its true            
D               A                            G
Cause a man was murdered for his money in the street 
D                       A                  G
He was takin his wife to a nice place to eat
          
D                      A                  G
When they caught the man he did 23 months of time
                       A                  G
He plead insanity like they do now all the time                    
D                 A               G 
Sir what would you have done in 1859
              
D                    A                             G
now if you shoot someone sir you can get off scott free
D                   A                       G
its the latest thing mr Lincoln can you believe
D                      A               G
Now they sue the manufactures of the guns
D                  A                 E
aint the law changed alot since 1861

[Repeat chorus]
D                A                G
I just heard the new story on the radio           
D                    A                       G
they let dangerous men outta prison now yes sir im afraid its so                 
D                        A                  G
cause theyre overcrowded and it was only his fifth offense      
 D                          A                         G
and this time hes killed someone does that make any sense          
D                   A                        G
Now my lawyer called me about a nuisance case
          
D                  A                           G
Cause everybody sues over any little thing these days
       D              A                        G
well at least we're right all we gotta do is tell the truth 
                   
D                   A                      G      
he said youre living in the past you romantic fool               
D                    A                             G
i said you got that right i lean toward the older ways                
D                 A                      E
And theres damn few back woods lawyers left today
