History

Rob Lincoln
Lingua: Inglese



I was there when little George – chopped down the cherry tree
And with a golden tear in his eyes he told the truth to me
I was sewing blankets -for my friend Old Hickory
Never heard of the small pox, it was such a damn pity

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap My words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free
To tell its history.

I went down to Texas beside General Zachary
The Mexicans attacked us, we never crossed their boundaries
I overheard Tennessee Johnson whispering loudly
How he tried to do his best to end all slavery.

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap my words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free
To tell its history.

I remember the Maine so well, but not the Phillipines
You say there were concentration camps
I don't know what you mean

I heard Woodrow Wilson's words ringing loudly
We'd fight a war to end all wars, not for aristocracy.

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap my words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free
To tell its history.

The haberdasheries was tough, he was a great man
he tried so hard to save so many lives, especially in Japan
I was petting Checkers – behind the scenery
Its little owner's daddy oh he felt no self pity

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap my words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free
To tell its history.

I was holding an umbrella -near a Dallas grassy knoll
I heard three shots, I was so shocked,
one madman took his toll
I was in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964
The commies they attacked us and forced us into war..

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap My words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free..
To tell its history.

Now Saddam was a liar
He hated our country
He was such an evil threat (danger)
To all of our safety

And I'm feeling real good now
better all the time
As long as you don't know your past
I'll have another line..

Some say I tell very tall tales
Some say I just lie
But their talk is cheap My words are free
So have another drink on me…
..We're living in a land that's free..
To tell its history.

..We're living in a land that's free
To tell its history.
