Liberty Tree

A colony young and new

An empire that grew and grew

A king aloof on his throne

Oppressed people cry and groan

Seeds of rebellion planted

More freedom was demanded

Tea destroyed in the bay

Tax collectors kept away

Shots fired and blood was spilt

Quickly machines of war built 

Homes of rebels burnt to ash

Brave minutemen make a dash

Hounds of war let loose at last

A new flag run up the mast

Blood waters the thirsty tree

And her name is Liberty
