The Lyrics

paul revere
saw two lights
by shore...they're coming by shore
so he rode down
through the village
with a warning in his refrain

british coming...can't you see ?
underfire, we'll soon be
hey, don't you hear me ?

paul revere
viewed steeple lamps
by shore...they're coming by shore
late at night
british thought
that no one was watching at all

we shall be free
and our guns will blaze
there's still hope
in the harbor, near the bay
war is underway

paul revere
saw signals there
by shore...they're coming by shore
streaking out
for his ride
through the cold wind
yelling out, "hey"
"look this way"

british marching endlessly
he shouts a warning out to thee
we shall be free

Bravo from a former Bostonian and current Concordian! It's pretty well agreed that Paul Revere would never have yelled "The British are coming!", since all the Colonials were still technically British subjects at the's most likely he yelled something like "The Regulars are out!" Also ...... many people don't know that there were MANY riders just like Paul Revere on that night of April 18-19 in 1775 .... there was an entire network of messengers and riders ready-to-go at a moment's notice, not only in Boston, but in all the surrounding towns, up and down the coast and inland. The Colonials had planned for that kind of eventuality long beforehand --- they had an intricate, cleverly-planned system of mounted messengers in-place and ready to be called upon in just such an emergency.
