Will Morgan was offended by the Masonic Lodge,
so he was arrested, paid a fine, was let go,
with a group of men, took him to the river, he couldn't dodge.
Will was never seen again by anybody here,
the Masons claimed they paid him off, the outcome was unclear;
people left the Masons scared of the church that they attended,
founded the Free Methodist, and that is how it ended.
