Lyrics for History Repeats Itself by Buddy Starcher

History Repeats Itself - Lyrics

Download Lyrics

Glory, glory, hallelujah
His truth is marching on

This is a strange but true story

Which proves that history
Does repeat itself

And the events depicted here
Happened just one hundred years apart

Both President Lincoln

And President Kennedy
Were concerned with

The issue of civil rights
Lincoln was elected

In eighteen hundred sixty
Kennedy was elected

In ninteen hundred sixty
One hundred years apart

Both were shot from behind in the head

Their successors both named Johnson
Were Southern Democrats

With seats in the Senate
Andrew Johnson was born

In eighteen hundred and eight
Lyndon Johnson was born

In nineteen hundred and eight
One hundred years apart

John Wilkes Booth

The man that shot Lincoln
Was born in 1839

Lee Harvey Oswald
The man that shot Kennedy

Was born in 1939
One hundred years apart

Booth and Oswald were Southerners

Favoring unpopular ideas
Booth and Oswald were both

Assassinated before going to trial
Both presidents wives

Lost children through death
While in the White House

Both presidents were killed on a Friday
And in the presence of their wives

President Lincoln's secretary

Whose name was Kennedy
Advised him not to go to the theater

President Kennedy's secretary
Whose name was Lincoln

Advised him not to go to Dallas
John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln

In a theater and ran to a warehouse
Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy

From a warehouse and ran to a theater
The names Lincoln and Kennedy

Each contain seven letters
The names Andrew Johnson

And Lyndon Johnson each
Contain thirteen letters

The names John Wilkes Booth
And Lee Harvey Oswald

Each contain fifteen letters
And friends, it is true

History does repeat itself
His truth is marching on
