10 o'clock you get the call from Dr. Joe
Across the river Charles to Charleston row
Borrow a horse from Deacon John
Its already 11 better get yourself gone

All the way your warning people left and right
Soldiers are coming at the break of light
Make it to Lexington at 12 o'clock
In time to warn Sam Adams and John Hancock

Paul Revere your missions clear
Ride into the night

You gotta make it through
and warn those two
The king is gonna get em if they dont engage in flight

Paul, your job is finished now your day is done
Suddenly your thinking of another one
William Dawes is in full accord
So the two of you blaze to old Concord

Open up the armory and turn for home
Get yourself snagged in a redcoat comb(?)
Around 2'AM you wiggle loose
Today you wont be swinging from a royalist noose
