GUITEAU

I am going to the Lordy,
I am so glad.
I am going to the Lordy,
I am so glad.
I am going to the Lordy,
Glory Hallelujah!
Glory Hallelujah!
I am going to the Lordy...

BALLADEER

Come all ye Christians,
And hear from sinner:
Charlie Guiteau.
Bound and determined
He'd wind up a winner,
Charlie had dreams
That he wouldn't let go.
Said, "Nothing to it,
I want it, I'll do it,
I'm Charles J. Guiteau."

Charlie Guiteau
Never said "Never"
Or heard the word "No."
Faced with disaster,
His heart would beat faster,
His smile would just grow,
And he'd say:

GUITEAU

Look on the bright side,
Look on the bright side,
Sit on the right side
Of the lord.
This is the land of
Opportunity,
He is your lightning,
You his sword.

Wait till you see tomorrow,
Tomorrow you'll get you reward!
You can be sad
Or you can be President-
Look on the bright side...
I am going to the Lordy...

BALLADEER

Charlie Guiteau
Drew a crowd to his trial,
Led them in prayer,
Said, "I killed Garfield,
I'll make no denial.
I was just acting
for someone up there.
The Lord's my employer,
And now He's my lawyer,
So do what you dare."

Charlie said, "Hell,
If I am guilty,
Then God is as well."
But God was aquitted
And Charlie committed
Until he should hang.
Still, he sang:

GUITEAU

Look on the bright side,
Not on the black side.
Get off your backside,
Shine those shoes!

This is you golden
Opportunity:
You are the lightning
And you're news!

Wait till you see tomorrow,
Tomorrow you won't be ignored!
You could be pardoned,
You could be President-
Look on the bright side...
I am going to the Lordy...

BALLADEER

Charlie Guiteau
Had a crowd at the scaffold-

GUITEAU

I am so glad...

BALLADEER

-Filled up the square,
Som many people
That tickets were raffled.
Shine on his shoes
Charlie mounted the stair,
Said, "Never sorrow,
Just wait till tomorrow,
Today isn't fair.
Don't despair..."

GUITEAU

Look on the bright side,
Look on the bright side,
Sit on the right side...

Of the...

I am going to the Lordy,
I am so glad!
I am going to the Lordy,
I am so glad!
I have unified my party,
I have saved my country.

I shall be remembered!

I am going to the Lordy...

BALLADEER

Look on the bright side,
Not on the sad side,
Inside the bad side
Something's good!
This is you golden
Opportunity:
You've been a preacher-

GUITEAU

Yes, I have!

BALLADEER

You've been an author-

GUITEAU

Yes, I have!

BALLADEER

You've been a killer-

GUITEAU

Yes, I have!

BALLADEER

You could be an angel_

GUITEAU

Yes, I could!

BALLADEER

Just wait until tomorrow,
Tomorrow they'll all climb aboard!
What if you never
Got to be President?
You'll be remembered-
Look on the bright side-
Trust in tomorrow-

BOTH

And the Lord!
