Copyright, 1892, by Henry J. Wehman.
Composed by G. C. Edwards.

The great fight is over, and Corbett has won,
Thousands have won money and thousands have won none;
The world is now excited, the Boston boy has lost,
It looked bad for Sullivan when Corbett won the toss.

Give John L. credit for what he has done,
For ten long years he has made them all run.
Though Corbett, they say, is a wonder to-day,
Give John L. credit for what he has done.

Corbett knew his business and kept out of John's way,
And when he got his chance on him he did play;
There stood the poor champion all covered with blood,
And everybody in the place knew John's name was mud.

Give John L. credit for what he has done,
For in ten long years many battles he has won;
His career has come to an end like all great things,
And all through the country his praises we sing.

He has fought many battles from California to Maine,
And now he has lost both money And name;
We see his hair is now turning gray,
And his fighting days have now passed away.- Chorus.
