Have you heard the story of General Greene,
A Rhode Island private who followed his dream.
In 1780 as Washington's man
He came to our state to free our great land.

Armies of British were sent by the King,
But they were no match for the genius of Greene.
Backed by the bravest of ill-equipped men
The Patriots fought to the glorious end.

There were Pickens and Sumter and Marion too,
Wild men at heart but to Greene they were true.
These Ghosts of the Woodlands who took up the cause
Gave the redcoats and Indians a reason to pause.

From the hills to the coast they took back our land,
For Liberty's sake they took a bold stand.
Our Nation was born by the Team and the Scheme
Of Marion, Sumter, Pickens and Greene.

To thank these great leaders and honor Greene's skill
Our town and our county were christened Greeneville.

[Along the base of the steps leading up to the Nathanael Greene statue are the words]:
I will recover the country or die in the attempt
