Thread Name: Lyr/Chords Req: The Alamo
Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: Allamo
180 were challenged by Travis(?) to die
by a line that he drew with his sword as the battle drew nigh
those that stepped over the line were for glory
those that stepped back never tried
and over the line stepped one hundred and seventy nine

hey hey heyup santianna they're killing your soldiers below
and the rest of texas will know
and remember the Alamo.

jim Bowie lay dying his blood and his powder were dry
his knife at the ready to take him a few in reply
young davy Crocket lay laughing and dying the blood and the sweat in his eyes
for texas and freedom no man was more ready to die

thats the first two verses and chorus if the third verse comes back into my head for a visit i'll post it
