It was three, not one that rode that night,
Dawes, Prescott, AND Revere,
Three men to carry the secret told by the church house light,
All somewhat filled with fear.
Dawes and Prescott were the successful ones,
Both completing their midnight runs.
Revere however met a different fate,
Luckily not delivering his message too late.
All three of the men played a part,
and yet its only Revere's story we know by heart.
The other two should be recognized,
If not the midnight ride is just a historical lie.
