Thread Name: Lyr Req: John Wilkes Booth
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: John WIlkes Boothe
Here's a thread creep ditty I learned when a small lad from a New York lawyer, sung to the toon of Ol' Black Joe:

My name is Abe,
An' I never done no sin.
I freed the slabe
An' my face is on the fin
I never tole
No-one nuffin but the truth!
How come you put that bullet in me,
John Wilkes Booth?!
