Patrick Henry
Song For Teaching American History - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Kathleen Wiley


This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's The American Dream


Lyrics:

Patrick Henry was an orator
Our country’s greatest orator
Inspiring men to take a stand
When freedom was at risk...
He gave a speech that then began
To burn in hearts of many men
Who then were willing to defend
With cannon, gun and fist....

CHORUS:
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
But never make me subject to a king...

His speech was so inspiring
Many people were admiring
They were also then desiring
To place freedom over life.....
Their willingness to sacrifice
Their comforts and their way of life
Would guarantee their children’s lives
Should then be free from strife....

CHORUS:
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
But never make me subject to a king...

Patrick Henry’s famous speech
Was delivered to the people
Of the Virginia Provincial Convention we know...
On March 23rd in 1775
These most famous words were heard
And here’s how the ending goes.....

IS LIFE SO DEAR OR PEACE SO SWEET
AS TO BE PURCHASED AT THE PRICE
OF CHAINS AND SLAVERY? FORBID IT, ALMIGHTY GOD!!
I KNOW NOT WHAT COURSE
OTHERS MAY TAKE, BUT AS FOR ME
GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!!!

And now we’ve got the nod...

To continue learning famous speeches
Famous people’s upward reaches
So that we can get a peek
Into what makes them tick...
So we can then continue
In their pathway and their venue
To guarantee the freedoms
That they risked their lives to pick.

CHORUS:
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
But never make me subject to a king...

So let us now remember
That in each soul is an ember
Burning January to December
With freedom’s light...
But if it is not tended
Its potential flame is ended
So it’s up to us to tend it
So the torch of truth stays bright.

CHORUS:
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
Patrick Henry
Give me liberty or death
But never make me subject to a king...
No, never make me subject to a king...
I’ll NEVER be subject to a king!!!
