A [C]hundred and [G]eighty a [C]challenge by [F]Travis to [C]die

By a [C]line that he [G]drew with his [C]sword when the [F]battle drew[C] n[C7]igh

A [F]man that crossed over the line[C] was for glory and he[F] who was left better [C]fly

And [C]over the [G]line stepped a [C]hundred and [F]seventy [C]ni[C7]ne

Chorus:
[F]Hey,......................up Santy Ana,Their killing you're soldiers be[Em]low

So the rest[F] of Texas will know[C] and remember[G] the Ala[C]mo[G]   [C]  [G]   [F]  [C]  [G]   [C]

J[C]im Bowie lay dy[G]in' his blood[C] and his powder[F] were dry

[C], but[C] his knife[G] at the ready[C] to take[F] him a few in reply[C]  [C7}

Old[F] Davey Crockett lay laughin'[C] and dyin', the[F] blood and the sweat in his[C] eye,

Bu[C]t for Texas[G] and freedon[C] a man was more wil[F]lin' to die,[C]  [C7]

Chorus:

A[C] courier came[G] to a battle[C] once bloody and loud[C],

but found[C] only skin[G] and bones[C] where he once[F] left a crowd,[C]   [C7}

    Fe[F]ar not little darlin' of dyin'[C] if the world[F] is sovreign[C] and free,


For[C] we'll fight[G] to the last[C] for as long[F] as liberty be,[C]   [C7]

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
