According to wikipedia,
“The Liberty Song” is an American Revolutionary War song composed by patriot John Dickinson, the author of Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania. The song is set to the tunes of “Heart of Oak”, the anthem of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom and “Here’s a Health”, an Irish song of emigration. The song itself was first published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768.
