Declaration of Independence
Song for Teaching About American History
Learning by Song/Barbara Speicher

This song, along with the instrumental version, sheet music, and extension activities, is available on Barbara Speicher's "Learning About Patriotic Holidays and Symbols by Song"

This song, instrumental version, and activities, is also available as an individual download.


We hold these truths to be self-evident
That all men are created equal
They’re endowed by their Creator with certain rights
Not taken from them, unalienable

That among these rights are life and liberty
And the pursuit of happiness
That the government is formed to help them
Keep these rights that they possess

Declaration of Independence
Written for our defense
Document that makes good sense
Declaration of Independence

The writers of the Declaration
Listed wrongs King George imposed:
The colonists could not make laws
Nor meet when or where they chose

British soldiers were sent to control them
And all judges were the King's
Worst of all were heavy taxes placed on tea
And many other things
