Elmo Lincoln
By Jack Ingram

G6 – 320033
C9 - 032033

Elmo Lincoln was a friend of mine
C9                                         G6   C9
We used to throw papers every weekday afternoon
He was makin’ some dough saving up for a bike
      C9                                                G6     C9
I was layin low I was killin time on those weekday afternoons
          G                      G/F#
Well, our hands got black but we never got tired
Till one day I quit and Elmo got fired
D       C9                      G6       C9
We were free every weekday afternoon

We rode that bike that he’d worked for all year
Go down to the corner store, too young to want beer
But we’d buy some baseball cards, I’d give him my gum
Cause the s**t was too hard and I didn’t want none
It would always get dark and I’d make an excuse
Thinking he’d buy it But it was no use 
the sun never set down for Elmo Lincoln
Not For Elmo Lincoln

I’ll never forget when old Elmo got stuck
Stealing caps from a kid he ran out of luck
We laughed at his nose but nobody had died
Just a little lost blood and a bit of bruised pride
You’d think he would quit but Elmo kept on
Just pissed his collection was gone
I guess I never really knew Elmo Lincoln
Elmo Lincoln, Elmo Lincoln, Elmo Lincoln

Well, I’ll never let go the day I awoke from a call from a friend
It’d been years since we spoke
Elmo had been killed – run down in the night
By a train without end, a train without light
You think I would cry but never I did
Couldn’t help but smile just thinkin’ of that kid
That I used to run with – Elmo Lincoln
