meself Lyr Req: Booth Shot Lincoln / Booth Killed Lincoln (10) RE: Lyr Req: Booth Shot Lincoln 03 Apr 19

"It was sung by Bascom Lamar Lunsford of South Turkey Creek, Leicester, Buncomb County, North Carolina. Mr. Lunsford, who described the air as an old fiddle tune, as a small boy heard his father hum it and sing a few stanzas."

It is surprising, then, to be presented with what seems a complete set of lyrics, in seven stanzas. Were these Luford's lyrics, and if so, is it likely that he himself completed the song from the 'few stanzas' his father sung?
