I HAVE THE BODY OF JOHN WILKES BOOTH

Like Marlon Brando, but bigger.
You’ll find that creature at the bottom of the deep down Susquehanna River.
This one I had stood right on up to me,
Tore out his hook and declared himself a prodigy.
But oh no, fishing ain’t what it used to be.
I’ve seen some bad years, but this one is just killing me.
One little nibble in thirteen years,
I really pack “em in.
This one I had, I seen it in dreams,
All shacked up with lightning and horizon beams.

Well I bring “em on up, and then I pack “em on in
In all the places I’ve been,
And I swear it’s never been like this before,
Least not since 19 and 44.
But today, I made a sick discovery,
Lead box in Sassafras Cove.
Well I brought him on up and then I packed him on in, oh yes,
Now I’m really cashing in.

Wash of the Chesapeake and Appalachian Blue Range,
I have discovered the body of John Wilkes Booth.
Yes, it’s true, I have Mr. Booth.
Everybody got to make a living somehow.
Do I hear a million?

Well I bring “em on up and then I pack “em on in.
