Words- Paul Colwell
Music- Paul and Ralph Colwell
They saw two lanterns in the North Church tower,
They knew this was to be the fateful hour
For a man to ride and to alarm
Ev’ry village and ev’ry farm
To awaken them and call to arm,
It was the ride of Paul Revere!
Ride! Ride! Tho’ the night be cold.
Ride! Ride! Till the truth be told!
Ride! Ride! Like that man of old!
Ride like Paul Revere!
In seventy five upon an April night,
The air was chilly and the moon shone bright.
They rowed him past the man-of-war
Landed on the Charlestown shore,
Where the finest steed was ready for,
The ride of Paul Revere!
I wonder if, two hundred years ahead,
If they will ride, or if they’ll stay in bed.
When faith and freedom within them die,
And when they hear that midnight cry
And the hoof-beats cross the moonlit sky,
Will they ride with Paul Revere?
Ride with Paul Revere!
