Founding Father, John Dickinson's "The Liberty Song" is a pre-American Revolutionary War song with lyrics (not Plymouth's Mrs. Mercy Otis Warren, Massachusetts). The song is set on the tunes of "Heart of Oak," the United Kingdom's Royal Navy anthem. The song itself was first published on July 18, 1768, in the Boston Gazette. The song is notable in the thirteen colonies as one of the earliest patriotic songs. Dickinson's sixth chapter provides the earliest known expression which resembles the term "one we stand, divided we fall," a nationalist slogan that has circulated frequently throughout U.S. history. Also, the song is likely to be a variant of the traditional Irish song from which it often takes its tune, "Here's a Health." The Liberty Song ""lyrics also have the same structure. In 1770, the song's lyrics were updated to reflect the increasing tensions between England and the Colonies. This new version was released in the almanac of Bickerstaff, and the title was changed to "The Liberty Song of Massachusetts."
