Lin-Manuel Miranda - One Last Ride Lyrics



[Washington:]
Hamilton!

[Hamilton:]
Sir!

[Washington:]
I hope you're happy

[Hamilton:]
Sir, is this about the Whiskey Rebellion
In western Pennsylvania?

[Washington:]
You could've given me a word of warning

[Hamilton:]
Because it is your Secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson
Who has been agitating these men

[Washington:]
Thomas Jefferson resigned this morning

[Hamilton:]
I'm sorry—what?

[Washington:]
This is expensive stuff

[Hamilton:]
The whiskey tax is very unpopular
But necessary

[Washington:]
Shh, haven't you talked enough?

[Hamilton:]
I hate to think about what Jefferson
Will do when he's no longer in this Cabinet

[Washington:]
Why?

[Hamilton:]
Imagine the damage he'll inflict
Agitating from the outside

[Washington:]
He's gonna run for president
In two years' time

[Hamilton:]
But you'll still be president, sir

[Washington:]
I won’t be president in two years’ time

[Hamilton:]
You could remain as long as you’re alive

[Washington:]
One last ride, while I'm in my prime
I'll need you by my side
while we still have time
We're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye
Say goodbye—you and I!

Let's begin
First, write my farewell address;
Madison wrote the first draft
It's a mess
Start with his words, or start from scratch

[Hamilton:]
To you, sir

[Washington:]
Hmm. Down the hatch!

[Hamilton:]
But what about the rebels
Who are mad about this whiskey?

[Washington:]
I have a plan, but it's risky

[Hamilton:]
What's your plan, sir?

[Washington:]
If I still fit in this thing

[Washington:]
We’re gonna turn around and win this thing!

[Washington/Hamilton:]
One last ride..

[Washington:]
Let's show these hellions!
I'm gonna need you..

[Washington/Hamilton:]
By my side

[Washington:]
We know from rebellions
We're gonna teach 'em
How to stay in line,
to stay in line..

[Washington/Hamilton:]
You and I!

[Washington:]
I never wanted a crown;
I never wanted to lead
But I couldn't turn my back
On a nation in need

[Hamilton:]
Sir, you were born to lead

[Washington:]
One last ride.
I'm past my prime, but I served with pride
while we still have time
We're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye
You and I

[Company:]
Western Pennsylvania
Here comes the President!

[Rebel 1:]
Oh my god!

[Company:]
Here comes the President!

[Rebel 1:]
Everybody put your guns down!

[Company:]
Here comes the President!

[Rebel 1:]
Can it really be?

[Rebel 2:]
It is! Look!

[Company:]
Here comes the President!

[Rebels:]
George Washington!

[Washington:]
You are outgunned!

[Hamilton:]
What!

[Washington:]
Outmanned!

[Hamilton:]
What!

[Washington:]
Outnumbered, outplanned!

[Hamilton:]
Pay your fucking taxes!

[Washington:]
Put your guns down on my command!

[Hamilton:]
Hand 'em over!

[Washington:]
This is Hamilton, my right-hand man

[Hamilton:]
Buck, buck, buck, buck, buck!

[Company:]
We're outgunned..
Outmanned..

[Hamilton:]
You hear it?

[Company:]
Outnumbered, outplanned

[Hamilton:]
now that's distilled spirits

[Company:]
by the greatest man in all of the land

[Hamilton:]
Please rise for your President

[Company:]
George Washington!

[Hamilton:]
Though, in reviewing the incidents of my administration
I am unconscious of intentional error
I am nevertheless
I am nevertheless too sensible of my defects
Not to think it probable that I may have committed many errors
I shall also carry with me the hope that my country
Will never cease to view them with indulgence;
And that, after...

[Washington/Hamilton:]
Forty five years of my life dedicated to its service with an upright zeal
The faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion
As I myself must soon be
To the mansions of rest

I anticipate with pleasing expectation that retreat
In which I promise myself to realize, the sweet enjoyment of partaking in the midst of my fellow-citizens
The benign influence of good laws under a free government
The ever-favorite object of my heart
And the happy reward, as I trust, of our mutual cares, labors, and dangers

[Washington:]
One last ride

[Hamilton:]
Teach 'em how to say goodbye

[Washington:]
You and I
One last hurrah!

[Hamilton:]
History has its eyes on you!

[Washington:]
Oh, we're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye
Oh, we're gonna teach 'em how to say goodbye
Teach 'em how to say goodbye
Say goodbye, say goodbye
One last ride!

  1. Amanda .Z

    *PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES*

  2. Wesley Sun

    3:40 Story of tonight motif. (For those music theory nerds around here)

  3. Alexander Hamilton

    Fun fact: President Washington died because of a closing in his throat, which closed his air pipes.
    (Sorry if it doesn’t really make sense.)

  4. Yukin Allen

    Man I wish they kept this in xD

  5. Unkown Posts

    PAY YOUR TAXES

  6. LamsShipper 4Life

    This is making me cry super hard but laugh at the same time. I'm listening to it on Philip's 238th birthday and I have a lot of emotions right now and I'm bawling my eyes out and crying "Don't leave us Washingtdad." I am very (very very very very very) attached to men who died two hundred years ago.

  7. zoe potter

    PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES

    That's a whole Hamilton mood if I ever heard one.

  8. Sophie Abbot

    PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES

  17. Collin

    Honestly One Last Time is great, but I wish they had used this instead.

  18. SassberrySnap

    Hamilton screaming is my new religion

  19. LamsShipper 4Life

    This is perfect why would they cut it?!?

  20. Koa Jaffe

    For those of you wondering what the fuck this song is, I believe it is based off of the Whiskey strike where people made whiskey and didn’t pay taxes to the government and the government published a whiskey ban

  21. Ashanti J.

    i have never heard this song before and i am genuinely crying from laughter this is the funniest shit

  22. Dusk The Corgi

    Please tell me this is actually in the musical

    It was replaced with "One Last Time", I love both versions, although, I am fond of Hamilton having a melt down on stage with the
    *"bWuH BwUh bwuh!!!*

  67. strqbxxry

    TO YOU SIR

    *slorp*

  68. katherine nwe

    2:54 *I AM DEAD*

  69. Yezou *

    this is hamilton, my worst hype man

  70. Sophie B

    It's cool he added the 'da da da' thing that's usually in king george's songs and then right after put george washington's letter. George Washington stepped down because he didn't want to be viewed as a king, but the ensemble doing that symbolises the king. Pretty cool

  71. Allison Gruhn

    P A Y Y O U R F U C K I N G T A X E S

  72. ella.umbrella

    *P A Y Y O U R F U C K I N G T A X E S!*

  73. something or someone

    PAY THE F*CKING TAXES

  74. Amanda Vieira

    Now I understand the difference between Broadway and off Broadway hahahahahhahaha

  75. Amanda Vieira

    Off Broadway was crazy

  76. LEEWEE !!!!!

    Is litterally gonna comment about 1:19 *SLURP* D O W N T H E H A T C H

  77. Shoto Todoroki

    PAY YOUR FUCKING TAXES

  78. Loki • Fʀᴏᴍ ᴛʜᴇɪʀ ᴍʏᴛʜꜱ

    Though this is hilarious, allow us to look at it from a more serious perspective.

    This song actually talks about how Washington really didn't want to lead again, which is something they don't really mention. This really properly reflects his frustration as a President. He was a good leader, but the best leaders get tired.

    Plus some of the harmonizing that doesn't actually have words is gorgeous. The nananas give me chills man.

  79. Clare Ann

    I understand why this was cut

  80. thatdude35 1

    I hate Hamilton

  81. ʟᴀᴠᴇɴᴅᴇʀ ᴄᴏs

    ITS BEEN 3 YEARS AND IVE NEVER HEARD THIS WTF

  82. Frank iero Plz love me

    This proves Alex was secretly a royalist and it was higly rumoured and it was an idea as soon as they alected george

  83. Lexi Hill

    I’ll never forget when this played out loud in my art class

  84. Secret3v7

    We were robbed

  85. brie likethecheese

    "PAY YOUR F****ING TAXES" is my new catchphrase

  86. Egg Thanos

    Ngl in my Hamilton phase I never knew this existed and I’m kinda glad I came here

  87. randomacting 1234

    omg! pay your fucking taxes!!! thought is was a joke but its absolutely hilarious

  88. Coolperson2323

    2:53 :)

  89. Sara Wilson

    2:39 Is amazing

  90. Incomplete Randomness

    *Bwah Bwah Bwah Bwah Bwah*

  91. UsotheMarshmallow

    this sounds like one of those song parody memes that were made of hamilton except its Real

  92. angeliy

    Washington: This is Hamilton



    Hamilton: *B U C K X 4*

  93. Josue Garcia

    Starting at 2:50 it sounds like hes screaming to an old man and the man cant hear him cuz hes old

  94. Skater

    Kinda glad this didn’t make it. It would take away the beauty of One Last Time.

  95. alegend sydn3y

    2:54 your welcome

    also 3:00 i’m WHEEZING

  96. Andrew Neal

    George sounds different...
