Here's an anti-Lincoln campaign song that I found for a friend who performs historical music. I thought some Mudcatters might like it, too.

Good Morning, Master Lincoln!
By Max Langenschwarz.

(Melody: "Wait for the Wagon." &c.)

Good morning, Master Lincoln!
    How do you feel to day?
I think the joke is over now,
    You'll move before next May.
We've got another Tenant,
    They call him little Mac;
You'll find your house in Springfield yet,
    And better you go back!
        Please take your wagon,
        Please take your wagon,
        Please take your wagon,
        For the last little ride.

You hir'd from us this Mansion
    In Eighteen Sixty-One,
You promised to protect it, Sir,
    And now it's nearly gone.
You've sworn to our agreement,
    But did you keep your oath?
Therefore we have to put you out,
    It's better for us both.
        Please take your wagon &c., &c.

Our Neighbors made us trouble,
    You said, you'd make it right,
You told us only ninety days
    Would last that little fight.
And now, three years are over,
    Without the slightest gain.
We aided and assisted you,
    But this was all in vain.
        Please take your wagon &c., &c.

Our former Tenants paid us
    In Silvercoin or gold.
You took our coin away from us,
    And left us in the cold.
What else you've done to kill us,
    In silence we will pass;
But now we must get rid of you
    Before we go to grass.
        Please take your wagon &c., &c.

McClellan, your Successor,
    Has taken now the place.
He'll help you move your furniture,
    And go into your place.
Oh, what a day of glory!
    There will be but One Shout!
Good morning, Master honest Abe,
    Don't fall if you go out.
        Please take your wagon &c., &c.

Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1864 in the Clerks Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York by Max Langenschwarz.
