Happy Birthday!

2nd President

John Adams

born 10/30/1735
(died the same day as Tom Jefferson, 7/4/1826)

        Ye sons of Columbia, who bravely have fought
        For those rights which unstained from your sires have descended,
        May you long taste the blessings your valour has bought
        And your sons reap the soil which your fathers defended.

                "Adams & Liberty," by Thomas Paine & 1st sung 6/1/1798

I don't know if it actually went into tradition. Tune is "Anacreon in Heaven."
In Songbook of the American Revolution, Carolyn Rabson

Kinky Friedman born on 10/30/1944 [also born on 10/31]
