Sherman Edwards - The Lees Of Old Virginia lyrics

My name is Richard Henry Lee
Virginia is my home
My name is Richard Henry Lee
Virginia is my home

And may my horses turn to glue
If I can't deliver up to you
The resolution on independency

For I am FFV
The first family
In the sovereign colony
Of Virginia

Yes, the FFV
The oldest family
In the oldest colony
In America

And may the British burn my land
If I can't deliver to your hand
The resolution on independency

You see, it's here a Lee, there a Lee
And everywhere a Lee, a Lee

Benjamin Franklin:
(Social)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(Political)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Bejamin Franklin:
(Financial)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(Natural)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(Internal)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(External)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(Fraternal)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(Eternal)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Lee!)

The FFV
The first family
In the sovereign colony
Of Virginia

And may my wife refuse my bed
If I can't deliver, as I said
The resolution on independency

John Adams:
(Spoken modest-Lee. God help us.)

Benjamin Franklin:
(He will, John. He will.)

They say that God in heaven
Is everybody's God
I'll admit that God in heaven
Is everybody's God

But I tell you John, with pride
God leans a little on the side
Of the Lees, the Lees of old Virginia

You see it's here a Lee, there a Lee
And everywhere a Lee, a Lee
Here a Lee, there a Lee
And everywhere a Lee
(Look out, there's Arthur Lee! Bobby Lee! And General Lighthorse Harry Lee! Willy Lee! Jesse Lee!)

Benjamin Franklin:
(And Richard H.?)

Richard Henry Lee:
(That's me!)

And may my blood stop running blue
If I can't deliver up to you
The resolution on independency

Yes, sir, by God it's
Here a Lee, there a Lee
Come on, boys, join in with me!

Here a Lee, there a Lee

Benjamin Franklin:
(When do you leave?)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Immediate-Lee!)

Here a Lee, there a Lee

Benjamin Franklin:
(When do you return?)

Richard Henry Lee:
(Short-Lee!)

Here a Lee, there a Lee
And I'll come back triumphant-Lee!

Here a Lee, there a Lee
Everywhere a Lee, a Lee
Forward, ho!
