I made a couple corrections to it. For example, Adams had a quasi-war with France, he
didn't really keep us out. And Obama isn't fantastic, so I edited that lyric. I also have
JoCo's correct lyric about Garfield's real assassination year. I'll try to keep the real 
year in the song updated.

Um, When making tabs about songs with lyrics, it's really not your place to fix "Historical Errors", especially about your views of Obama. Keep the lyrics as they are please. I want the song, not your political views
