Land Of The Free

Swiftly, Swiftly,


The message comes through.


Swiftly, Swiftly,




The Red coats are coming.


Swiftly, swiftly,


One if by land, two if by sea.


Swiftly, Swiftly,


Two lights I see in the in the distance.








Hurry, Hurry,


Hide your savings and supplies.


Hurry, Hurry,


Women and children need to leave.


Hurry, Hurry,


Into the houses quickly!


Hurry, Hurry,


Pray for your men and your sons.





Softly, Softly,


Behind the barns and stone walls.


Softly, Softly,


Lest your footsteps be heard.


Softly softly


Watch The Redcoats come through.


Softly, Softly,


As they march to their doom.





Bravely, Bravely,


A shot pierces the night.


Bravely, Bravely,


Over and over again.


Bravely, Bravely,


Ti's no time for for the meek.


Bravely, Bravely,


Remember why we fight.






Lively, Lively,


Are our voices and our hearts.


Lively, Lively,


As we face retreating backs.


Lively, Lively,


Are our women and young ones.


Lively, lively,


As they run into outstretched arms.




Gently, Gently,


As we bury our dead.


Gently, Gently,


Our tears run freely.


Gently, Gently,


Their lives shall not be in vain.


Gently, Gently,


Dry your tears.


Gently, Gently,


Ti's only just begun.
