Alamo

Donovan

 CGCFC
hundred and eighty a challenge by Travis to die

 CGCFCC7
By a line that he drew with his sword when the battle drew nigh

 FCFC
man that crossed over the line was for glory and he who was left better fly

 CGCFCC7
And over the line stepped a hundred and seventy nine

Chorus:
 FEm
 Hey,......................up Santy Ana,Their killing you're soldiers below

 FCGCGCGFCGC
So the rest of Texas will know and remember the Alamo               

 CGCF
Jim Bowie lay dyin' his blood and his powder were dry

 CCGCFC
 , but his knife at the ready to take him a few in reply  [C7}

 FCFC
Old Davey Crockett lay laughin' and dyin', the blood and the sweat in his eye,

 CGCFCC7
But for Texas and freedon a man was more willin' to die,  

Chorus:

 CGCC
A courier came to a battle once bloody and loud,

 CGCFC
 but found only skin and bones where he once left a crowd,   [C7}

 FCFC
    Fear not little darlin' of dyin' if the world is sovreign and free,

 CGCFCC7
For we'll fight to the last for as long as liberty be,   

Last chorus hold on "F" and stretch out Hey...........to santy ana,

and remember the alamo...... Donovan

Hope this helps some of you fellow folk singers with this one, thank God I remembered the lyrics after all these years, I'm surprised more people don't do Donovan stuff, its generally 3 or 4 chord stuff, mostly in "G", the songs are very pretty and easy to sing, dug out this one and 4 others for my bar gig last week and made $10 in tips from some closet Donovan fans....Keep on....justasinger54
