The Revolution

(to the tune of “The Gambler”)
by Brent-Emory..Johnson

Once upon a time
Across the sprawling ocean
An evil king conspired to
Destroy the liberty
Of a faraway people
With a faith in God Almighty
A commitment to a life in which
They could all be free

So then people of all colors
Both the wealthy and the starving
Came together with a common goal
Of justice everywhere
They learned to work together
To be free from their oppressors
And they taught to their posterity
Not to live their lives in fear

‘Twas a long long time ago
In a musty place called Concord
At a dusty square in Lexington
With freedom in their hearts
Where two groups of stalwart men
Shed the shackles of complaisance
And erupted into something
That would set them all apart

CHORUS
We’ve got to start a Revolution
Be part of the solution
Stand up and resist those who
Attack our liberty
We need to show respect
For the men who died for freedom
If we don’t fight for America
She’ll be lost to history

Now the future is upon us
And it don’t look all that different
From the evil king our Founders fought
So we could all live free
We’re assaulted every day
By those sworn to protect us
While the liars up in Washington
Try to take our liberty

It’s a long time overdue
For the people to take action
Shed the shackles of complaisance and
Rise up and make your stand
If enough of you
Heed the sacred call of freedom
We can resurrect our liberty
Till it spreads throughout the land

CHORUS
We’ve got to start a Revolution
Be part of the solution
Stand up and resist those who
Attack our liberty
We need to show respect
For the men who died for freedom
If we don’t fight for America
She’ll be lost to history

CHORUS
We’ve got to start a Revolution
Be part of the solution
Stand up and resist those who
Attack our liberty
We need to show respect
For the men who died for freedom
If we don’t fight for America
She’ll be lost to history

CHORUS
We’ve got to start a Revolution
Be part of the solution
Stand up and resist those who
Attack our liberty
We need to show respect
For the men who died for freedom
If we don’t fight for America
She’ll be lost to history
