What He Wrote

Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Jonathan Sprout & Dave Kinnoin

    
This song is available on Jonathan Sprout's
American Heroes #3

Seventh & Market Street, Philadelphia, PA,
Second floor apartment, hot summer day.
Young Mr. Jefferson, thoughts swirling in his head,
Holds high his hopes and dreams that freedom isn’t dead.
History is on the brink. His pen dips into the ink.

Refrain:

What he wrote
It was a Declaration of an emerging nation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident
All men are created equal.
And on it went.
Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness…
He spelled democracy and nothing less.
He made it crystal clear
So all the world could hear.

Refrain

Let justice kick the King out and send his troops away.
Let freedom bells ring out our Independence Day!

Refrain
