Benjamin Harrison
Grandson of William Henry
Rose in Indianapolis
Great campaigner
Fought for Civil War veterans
And he was himself
Gave 140 speeches
Six states into the Union
He raised the tariff higher than it'd ever been before
Helped fight monopolies with Sherman Antitrust Act

But he left, but he left, but he left, but he left
The Panic of 1893
Was it caused, was it caused, was it caused, was it caused
By the Sherman Silver Purchase Act?
Some say yeah, some say yeah, some say yeah, some say yeah
But Harrison was never for it
And Harrison, Harrison, Harrison, Harrison
approved of annexation of Hawaii

But he left, But he left
