Joe Falzone


by Joe Falzone
of East Boston

listen to the ode (mp3 file)


Freedom, Freedom, FREEDOM

From the Freedom Trail in Boston

To the Dome on Beacon Hill

To Framingham and Worcester

And Springfield if you will

From Concord on to Lexington

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 to MASSACHUSETTS

You’ll always be sweet home to me.

1998 Joe Falzone
