Steve Martin - Me and Paul Revere Lyrics

(feat The Steep Canyon Rangers )

Late at night in the silver light, in the stables eating hay
In came a man, an artisan, and we both rode away
He whispered in my upturned ear, “it’s time to get an’ go”
'Till this job’s done, we breath as one, head for the outbound road”

Me and Paul Revere, oh, me and Paul Revere
I’m the horse he chose of course, me and Paul Revere

He told me that a thousand troops, were out to do their worst
“They want Sam Adams and Hancock, we’ve gotta get there first!”
Along the way to Lexington, the Regulars drew guns
They gave chase and we set pace, those boys they were outrun

Me and Paul Revere, oh, me and Paul Revere
On the run to Lexington, me and Paul Revere

We turned North through Cambridge Town, along the mystic road
Nostrils flared and gallop strong, my legs on fire below
We got up to where they slept, woke Adams and Hancock
And they said “who’s that?
That’s Larkin’s horse, she’s steady as a rock”

Brown Beauty is my name, Brown Beauty is my name
Revere and I one and the same, Brown Beauty is my Name

The Grenadiers are on the move, let’s fill the powder horns
How much more has that horse got, Concord must be warned
Paul Revere gave me the heel, we charged the Concord road
But we were taken prisoner, by ten men on patrol

Me and Paul Revere, oh, me and Paul Revere
I’m the horse he chose of course, me and Paul Revere

He told them that a hundred men, had spread the good alarm
“You better head away from here, for Lexington is armed”
Revere stood tall and fooled them all, told ‘em what to do
And they let him go but sadly so, they took me with them too

I never saw Revere again, I know he thinks of me
And wonders where I ended up, the night we set men free
I’m just the horse that no one knows, I’m famous though inside
But just standing proudly in a field, I was Revere’s ride
