Liberty Song

Line
Melody - "Heart of Oak", Dr. Boyce; Seq. by Barry Taylor
Line

John Dickinson

Come, join hand in hand,
Brave Americans all!
And rouse your bold hearts
At fair Liberty's call;
No tyrannous acts shall
Suppress your just claim,
Or stain with dishonor
America's name.
Chorus:
In freedom we're born,
And in freedom we'll live!
Our purses are ready,
Steady, friends, steady;
Not as slaves, but as free men,
Our money we'll give.
2. How sweet are the labors
That freemen endure,
That they shall enjoy
All the profit, secure,
No more such sweet labors
Americans know,
If Britons shall reap
What Americans sow.
Chorus:

3. Then join hand in hand
Brave Americans all,
By uniting we stand,
By dividing we fall;
In so righteous a cause
Let us hope to succeed,
For Heaven approves of
Each generous deed.
Chorus:
