The Alamo
By Johnny Cash

  C           G7          C             G7        C G7 C G7
A hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
       C            G7            C              G7        C G7 C G7
By the line that he drew with his sword when the battle was nigh
    F                           C
Any man that would fight to the death, cross over
       F                          C
But if you wanna live, you better fly
    C        G7             C           G7      C G7 C G7
And over the line stepped a hundred and seventy nine

Chorus:
F                                               C
Hey, Santa Ana, we're killing you're soldiers below
   F                  C                        C G7 C G7 C
So men, wherever they go, will remember the Alamo


Old Bowie lay dyin', his powder was ready and dry
Flat on his back, Bowie killed him a few in reply
And young Davy Crockett was smilin' and laughin'
with gallantry tears in eyes
For God and for freedom, a man more than willing to die

Repeat chorus

They sent a young scout from the battlements bloody and loud
With the words of farewell from a garrison valiant and proud
Grieve not little darlin', my dyin', if Texas is sovereign and free
We'll never surrender and ever will liberty be

Repeat chorus
