The Ode of the Commonwealth

Ode to the Commonwealth

words and music by Joseph Falzone

    Freedom, Freedom, Freedom
    From the Freedom Trail in Boston
    To the dome on Beacon Hill
    To Framingham and Worcestor
    And Springfield if you will
    From Concord on to Lexingtion
    No matter where you roam
    There's a not so common Commonwealth
    It's the place that I call home

    You are the heart of New England
    Old Ironsides and Bunker Hill
    Where JFK once paved the way
    To the day the world stood still
    Your one by land and two by sea
    Helped set our country free
    You can't get better Massachusetts
    You'll always be sweet home to me.
    No, you can't get better Massachusetts
    You'll always be sweet home to me.
    Freedom, Freedom, Freedom
