Uncle SAM is a naughty old man.
He says he wants you but he only wants to use you.
He has a woman named Elizabeth she walk the streets selling her body for
Glory.
Immorality!
They get drunk from the blood of saints not the kind that are made into
Statues.
Her brother john drinks wine all day he and his friends trying to take our
Souls away.
O it's sad to say but uncle sam is gonna have his day.
They will weep for Elizabeth

They will weep for Elizabeth.
