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.
