A Man Amongst Men

This song is by Big Joe Williams and appears on the compilation Can't Keep From Crying: Topical Blues on the Death of President Kennedy (1964).

I saw president Kennedy when he rolled in down this town
I saw that mean old snapper when he shot our president down

There'll be a man it just like president Kennedy was
Sad what he said
He's a man, he's a man amongst men
He was known in the four corners of the world

I got in my television, I looked in Washington town
I saw six white horses carrying president Kennedy to the early grave

There'll be a man it just like president Kennedy was
He's a man, he's a man amongst men
He was known in the four corners of the world

Now you know what we was told in here
Your hands all go ____
I said now president Kennedy's dead I may have to go wait on the seat everyday

Sad day sad day
When president Kennedy went down
He's a man amongst men
He was known in the four corners of the world
