Mr. Lincoln i wish you were here the republics changed a lot in a hundred years and i don't think its working like you planned. ow Mr. Lincoln we could use a hand.
i just read the headlines in the Nashville news and i wish id made this up but im afraid its true. cause a man was murdered for his money in the street. he was takin' his wife to a nice place to eat. when they caught the man he did 23 months of time. he plead insanity like they do now all the time.
Sir what would you have done in 1859? now if you shoot some one sir you can git of scott free. aw its the latest thing Mr. Lincoln can you believe? now they sewed the manufacturer of the guns. ain't the law changed a lot since 1861?
Mr. Lincoln i wish you were here cause things have changed a lot in a hundred years. and i don't think its working out like you planned. hey Mr. Lincoln we sure could use a hand.
i just heard the new story on the radio
they let dangerous men out of prisons now yes sir im afraid its so. cause there over crowded and it was only his 5th offense. yea and this time he's killed some one does that make any since? now my lawyer called me about a nuisance case cause everybody sues over any little thing these days. well at least were right all we got to do is tell the truth. he said your living in the past you old magic fool. i said you got that right i lean toward the older ways. and there's dam few backwoods lawyers left today. Mr. Lincoln i wish you were here the republics changed a lot in a hundred years. and i don't think its working like you planned hey Mr. Lincoln we sure could use a hand. Home
