[Verse 1]

Em G DOn the twenty-first of April, eighteen and sixty-five
C Bm EmThree-thirty-one left Washington for Lincoln's last train ride
G DThe cannons boomed, the bonfires burned, the evergreens wore grey
C Bm EmThree-thirty-one in the morning sun, the hearse, that journey made
[Chorus]
Em GSee that train coming, boys
D A Asus2Rolling down the main
C Bm DDraped in black, she won't be back
EmIt's Lincoln's funeral train
Em G Asus4 AWith the portrait of a martyred man shot down by a traitor
C Bm D EmNow toll the bell and bid farewell to the great emancipator
[Verse 2]
Em G DCrowd's jam the streets for a final look, At the great man who had stood
C Bm EmAt the country's helm through the bitter war, That seemed of little good
G DFelled by the bullet of John Wilkes Booth, As the battle died away
C Bm EmHis guiding spirit to reconcile by absence brought dismay
[Chorus]
Em GSee that train coming, boys
D A Asus2Rolling down the main
C Bm DDraped in black, she won't be back
EmIt's Lincoln's funeral train
Em G Asus4 AWith the portrait of a martyred man shot down by a traitor
C Bm D EmNow toll the bell and bid farewell to the great emancipator
C Bm D EmNow toll the bell and bid farewell to the great emancipator
