Very many songs, bearing this title, were produced during the revolution. This spirited one was originally published as a broadside, early in 1776. At a later period, it appeared in a music-sheet, adapted to the " Tune of the sweeper: — Though I sweep to and fro."
My muse, now thy aid and assistance we claim, Whilst freedom, dear freedom, affords us a theme, Invok'd, be propitious, nor madly forbear, When a theme that's so sacred should ring far and near.
