Hamilton - Tomorrow There Will Be More of Us Lyrics

Off-Broadway
Hamilton the Musical - Tomorrow There Will Be More of Us (The Laurens Interlude) Lyrics

(The song was not included on the original Broadway cast recording.)

[Laurens]
I may not live to see our glory

[Eliza]
Alexander, there's a letter for you from South Carolina

[Laurens]
But I will gladly join the fight

[Hamilton]
It's from John Laurens. I'll read it later

[Eliza]
No, it's not

[Laurens]
And when our children tell our story

[Hamilton]
Will you read it?

[Laurens]
They'll tell the story of tonight

[Eliza]
"On Tuesday, the twenty-seventh,
Lieutenant Colonel John Laurens was killed in a gunfight against British troops in South Carolina.
These troops had not yet received word from Yorktown that the war was over.
He's buried here until his family can send for his remains.
As you may know, Lieutenant Colonel Laurens was engaged in recruiting three thousand men for the first all-black military regiment.
The surviving members of this regiment have been returned to their masters."

[Laurens]
Tomorrow there'll be more of us

[Eliza]
Alexander, are you alright?

[Hamilton]
I have so much work to do

[Thanks to Anna for lyrics]
