NOTHING TO BRAG ABOUT
 (JOHN WILKES BOOTH)

It's nothing to brag about
What these hands have done
Wicked and sinful
Stained by a gun
Tattered and broken
Time on the run

After the victory
Shame has been won

It nothing to brag about
Nearer to thee
Crossing the water
To this destiny
Rain in the city
Hot mucky sun
After defeat
Shame has been won

Tell my dear mother
Country came first
Soon there'll be no sorrow
No hunger, no thirst
Read what Iíve written here
My deed can't be undone
After the bloodshed
Shame has been won

Remember me brothers
You who brought me down
Remember the fire
Remember this ground
If only for history
Forever's begun
It's nothing to brag about
Shame has been won
It's nothing to brag about
Shame has been won
