Paul Revere (Cash Johnny)

In April of 1775 This great nation started comin' alive Ol' King George didn't look 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 cops before it gets around Or it'll gonna be hard to hold them rebels down Well the King was talking bout the men like Paul Revere And the minute men who held their dream of Independence dear They kept their eyes on the British they watched 'em day and night They knew very soon they'd get their chance to stand and fight Yes they knew that the British would get movin' any hour So they arranged a signal in the Northern Church Tower Paul was watchin' when the tower showed a light And he started on his midnight ride He jumped on his horse hoofs started a hummin' He screamed out his warning redcoats're comin' Better get your guns and your fightin' britches on They're comin' and they're eight hundred strong Next mornin' at Concord and Lexington town The spirit of freedom turned the redcoats around When we praise the men who made this mighty nation we have here 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've 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
