Glory, glory, hallelujah

His truth is marching on



This is a strange but true story

Which proves that history

Does repeat itself

And the events depicted here

Happened just one-hundred years apart



Both President Lincoln and

President Kennedy were concerned

With the issue of civil rights

Lincoln was elected in 1860

Kennedy was elected in 1960

One hundred years apart



Both were shot from behind in the head

Their successors, both named Johnson

Were Southern Democrats

With seats in the Senate



Andrew Johnson was born

In eighteen-hundred and eight

Lyndon Johnson was born

In nineteen-hundred and eight

One hundred years apart



John Wilkes Booth, the man

Who shot Lincoln was born in

Eighteen-hundred and thirty-nine

Lee Harvey Oswald, the man

Who shot Kennedy was born in

Nineteen-hundred and thirty-nine

One hundred years apart



Booth and Oswald were Southerners

Favoring unpopular ideas

Booth and Oswald were both

Assassinated before going to trial



Both presidents wives lost children

Whrough death while in the White House

Both presidents were killed on a Friday

And in the presence of their wives



President Lincoln's secretary

Whose name was Kennedy

Advised him not to go to the theater

President Kennedy's secretary

Whose name was Lincoln

Advised him not to go to Dallas



John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln

In a theater and ran to a warehouse

Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy

From a warehouse and ran to a theater



The names Lincoln and Kennedy

Each contain seven letters

The names Andrew Johnson

And Lyndon Johnson

Each contain thirteen letters

The names John Wilkes Booth

And Lee Harvey Oswald

Each contain fifteen letters



And friends, it is true

History does repeat itself
