I Have the Body of John Wilkes Booth Lyrics

Like Marlon Brando, but bigger.
You'll find that creature at the bottom of the deep down Susquehanna River.
This one I had stood right on up to me,
Tore out his hook and declared himself a prodigy.
But oh no, fishing ain't what it used to...

    No big mystery here. The lyrics basically say that fishing hasn't been real good for the protagonist, and when he finally catches something, it's a rare one--the actual body of JWB and that he's cashing in on it.
