One Response to A Green Dragon Spotted In Gloucester Harbor

    The Green Dragon Tavern was the meeting place of the Sons of Liberty and it was mysteriously empty on the night of the Boston Tea Party. Then came this song.

    Rally, Mohawks bring out your axes!
    And tell King George we’ll pay no taxes

    on his foreign tea!
    His threats are vain – and vain to think
    To force our girls and wives to drink

    His vile Bohea!
    Then rally boys, and hasten on
    To meet our Chiefs at the Green Dragon.
    Our Warren’s there, and bold Revere,
    With hands to do and words to cheer

    For Liberty and Laws!
    Our country’s Braves and firm defenders
    Shall ne’er be left by true North-Enders,

    Fighting Freedom’s cause!
    Then rally boys and hasten on

    to meet our Chiefs at the Green Dragon
