SHOT HEARD 'ROUND THE WORLD
FROM ABC SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK!
As performed by WEEN
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....
"SHOT HEARD 'ROUND THE WORLD"
Standard tuning, folks!
ALL POWER CHORDS WITH SLIGHT DISTORTION.
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.
Any flames, corrections or grateful expressions or appreciations may be
sent to the email address listed in the header.
C YA!

VERSE CHORDS:
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!"
VERSE 1
A D
Now the ride of Paul Revere
G C
set the nation on its ear
A F# C# D
E
'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
VERSE 2
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
CHORUS
Take your blankets
Take your sons
Report to General Washington
We got our rights and now it's time to prove
VERSE 3
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
HOORAY!
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
***************
NOT SURE ON CHORD PATTERN FOR THIS EXCEPT THOSE NOTED
***************
brought freedom to you and me and the USA
E
God bless America
A
Let freedom ring
