Banjo tuned E, Capo 3, Key of F
Paul Revere
I[F]n April o[Bb]f 17[F]75
This great nation started[Bb] comin' al[F]ive
Ol' King George didn't like it one [C]bit
So he pro[F]ceeded to throw him a [C]royal f[F]it
He t[F]old his generals bette[Bb]r get 'em back in [F]line
Make 'em pay my taxes now America is m[C]ine
Stop that[F] Independence talk before it[Bb] gets around
Or it'll gonna [F]be hard to hold the[C]m rebels d[F]own
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
