[Intro]

Em Em Dsus4 D x 4


[Verse 1]

G
On the twenty-first of April
    D
Eighteen and sixty-five

The Three-Thirty-One left Washington
    C         Csus2      Em
For Lincoln's last train ride

G
Cannons boomed, the bonfires burned
                    D
The evergreens wore grey, Three-Thirty-One, in the morning sun
    C            Csus2   Em
The hearse, that journey made


[Chorus]

Em  Em/F# G                   D            A   A7sus4
See that  train comin', boys, rollin' down Main
C                Csus2                   D                 Em
Draped in black, she won't be back; it's Lincoln's funeral train
Em   Em/F# G              D                             A   A7sus4
With a     portrait of a martyred man, shot down by a traitor
C                     Csus2               D           Em
Now toll the bell and bid farewell to the Great Emancipator


[Instrumental]

Em Em Dsus4 D x 4


[Verse 2]

G
Crowds jammed the streets for a final look
       D
At the great man who had stood

At the country's helm, through the bitter war
     C          Csus2 Em                  
That seemed of little good

G
Felled by the bullet of John Wilkes Booth
                   D
As the battle died away, his guiding spirit to reconciled
   C       Csus2      Em
By absence brought dismay


[Chorus]

Em  Em/F# G                   D            A   A7sus4
See that  train comin', boys, rollin' down Main
C                Csus2                   D                 Em
Draped in black, she won't be back; it's Lincoln's funeral train
Em   Em/F# G              D                             A   A7sus4
With a     portrait of a martyred man, shot down by a traitor
C                     Csus2               D           Em
Now toll the bell and bid farewell to the Great Emancipator


[Middle 8]

Em Em/F# G D A A7sus4
C Csus2 D Em

(same strumming pattern as chorus)


[Chorus]

Em  Em/F# G                   D            A   A7sus4
See that  train comin', boys, rollin' down Main
C                Csus2                   D                 Em
Draped in black, she won't be back; it's Lincoln's funeral train
Em   Em/F# G              D                             A   A7sus4
With a     portrait of a martyred man, shot down by a traitor
C                     Csus2               D           Em
Now toll the bell and bid farewell to the Great Emancipator
C                     Csus2               D           Em
Now toll the bell and bid farewell to the Great Emancipator


From the video Greg likes to hammer on the Em chord at the end of each verse/chorus. Enjoy!
