on Schoolhouse Rock Rocks!
PS - This represents the author's best effort to identify chords. It
should not be taken as theft of intellectual or published property, as I
have never seen anyone else stupid enough to devote enough time to tabbing
out "Schoolhouse Rock!" jingles and thus have never seen a printed sheet
of music for this song....

Standard tuning, folks!
I find it works best with the volume knob on the guitar set on about 5
with distortion turned back to 6 or so. I've printed where the chords are
for the first verse and chorus, and after that, just repeat the same
pattern accordingly.

A  D  G   C  A  F#  C#  D  E
A  D   G   C F G A D E

Spoken: "The British are coming! The British are coming!"

              A                 D          
Now the ride of Paul Revere
            G                   C
set the nation on its ear 
               A                   F#                           C#       D
'And the shot at Lexington heard 'round the world
               A                             D
When the British fired in the early dawn
       G                                      C
the war of independence  had begun
                    A           F         G     A         D E
the die was cast, the rebel flag unfurled

        A                   D
And On to Concord marched the foe 
     G                         C
to seize the arsenal there you know
A                           F#                 C#        D E
Awakin' folks and searching all around

           A                                    D
So our militia stopped them in their tracks
           G                              C
at the old North Bridge we turned them back
       A                               F             G          A     D E
And chased those redcoats back to Boston town

CHORUS CHORDS: C  Bb  Eb  F  Eb  D  G  
                     Ab  Eb  Bb  C  F  Eb E 

               C                              Bb
Now the shot heard round the world 
             Eb                F
was the start of the revolution
       Eb                       D                    G
The minutemen were ready, on the move
Ab                         Eb
Take your powder take your guns
Bb                        C
report to General Washington
F                                     Eb         E 
hurry men there's not an hour to lose


Now the famous Bunker Hill

even though we lost it was quite a thrill

The rebel Colonel Prescott proved he was wise

Outnumbered and low on ammunition

as the British stormed his position

he said "Hold your fire till you see the whites of their eyes!"

Though the next few years were rough

General Washington's men proved they were tough

those hungry ragged boys would not be beat

One night they crossed the Delaware

Surprised the Hessians in their lair

And at Valley Forge just bundled up their feet

Now the shot heard round the world 

Was the start of the revolution

The minutemen were ready, on the move


Take your blankets

Take your sons

Report to General Washington

We got our rights and now it's time to prove


Well they showed such determination 

that they won the admiration 

of countries 'cross the sea like France and Spain
Who loaned the colonies ships and guns

and put the British on the run

and the Continental army on its feet again

Though we lost some battles too

the Americans swore they'd see it through 

they kept up raiding parties hit and run

At Yorktown the British could not retreat

Bottled up by Washington and the French fleet

Cornwallis surrendered and finally we had won 

And the shot heard 'round the world

was the end of the Revolution

The Continental rebel(s) took the day

And the father of our country 

beat the British there at Yorktown

brought freedom to you and me and the USA 
God bless America 
Let freedom ring

------------+Jesus Christ+-------------
      the original nonconformist
