lyrics

Received a letter from the post today
Gotta move my house for a railway
The return address was the Oval Office
Ulysses S. Grant signed the contents to dismantle

The time has come to do what must be done
To give Grant a piece of my mind
I'll risk life and limb so I can bury him
In a place no one can find

With my cabin razed logs lie in disarray
When I get an idea that shakes me down to my foundation
With my cabin's bones I will make Grant atone
By building a raft and sailing down the Mississippi

Grant's Farm lies ahead, my flintlock's full of lead
A gift to the commander-in-chief
My revenge in hand this pauper makes his stand
A bullet for him and then one for me
