The Liberty Song
Cite This Page
Come, join hand in hand, brave Americans all
In freedom we're born and in freedom we'll live, / Our purses are ready, steady, friends, steady, / Not as slaves, but as freemen our money we'll give.
Our worthy forefathers, let's give them a cheer, / To climates unknown did courageously steer; / Thro' oceans to deserts for Freedom they came
Their generous bosoms all danger despis’d, / So highly, so wisely, their birthrights they priz’d
Swarms of placemen and pensioners soon will appear / Like locusts devouring the charms of the year
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall
This bumper I crown for our sovereign’s health, / And this for Britannia’s glory and wealth; / That wealth and that glory immortal shall be, / If she is but just, and we are but free.
