Opening verse of "The Liberty Song" -
the first American protest song:

Come, join hand brave AMERICANS all,
And rouse your bold hearts at fair LIBERTY'S call;
No tyrannous acts shall suppress your just claim,
Or stain with dishonor AMERICA'S name,
Chorus: In FREEDOM we're born and in FREEDOM we'll live,
Our purses are ready,
Steady, Friends, Steady,
Not as SLAVES but as FREEMEN our Money we'll give.


Text by John Dickinson, The Boston Chronicle, 1768
