Musical notation, English
I went to James A. Garfield, he took me to be his friend. I shot a bullet
in him which caused his fatal end. 'Twas at the big depot I
thought I'd make my 'scape, but providence bein 'gainst me I found I was too late.
My name is Charles Giteau, My name I'll never deny, 'though I
leave my ancient parents in sorrow for to die, But
little did they think I, while in my youthful bloom, would be
taken to the scaffold to meet my fatal doom.
