In April of 1775
this great nation started coming to life.
Old King George didn`t like it one bit,
so he proceeded to throw him a royal fit.
He told his generals : Better get `em back in line!
Make `em pay my taxes now, America is mine!
Stop that independence talk before it gets around,
Am D G
or it`s gonna be hard to hold them rebels down!
Well, the King was talking `bout the men like Paul Revere,
and the Minutemen who held their dream of independence dear.
They kept their eyes on the British, they watched them day and night,
they knew very soon they`d get their chance to stand and fight.
Yes, they knew that the British would be moving any hour,
so they arranged a signal in the Northend church tower.
Paul was watching when the tower showed a light,
Am D G
and he started on his midnight ride.
He jumped on his horse, hooves started a humming,
he screamed out his warning: Redcoats are comin!
Better get your guns, and your fighting breeches on,
they`re comin` and they`re eight hundred strong.
Next morning at Concord and Lexington town,
the spirit of freedom turned the Redcoats around.
When we praise the men who made that mighty nation we have here,
Am D G Em Am D G
then let`s remember Paul Revere, yes, let`s remember Paul Revere.
I guarantee you somethin and I wanna tell you all
that we never would been here if it hadn`t been for Paul.
Yes Sir I surely doubt us ever bein here
if it hadn`t been for that man on that horse named mr revere
