Subject: RE: Songs by Donovan
As regards the Alamo, there is a trad itional song called REMEMBER THE ALAMO here. The 1960's song by the same name, popularized by the Kingston Trio and Donovan, I do not find in the DT. It goes:

One hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
By the line that he drew with his sword when the battle drew nigh
Let he who would fight to the death step over,
But he who would live better fly.
And over the line stepped a hundred and seventy-nine!

Cho.:Way up! Santy Anna we're killing your soldiers below,
So the rest of Texas will know,
And remember the Alamo.

'S all I remember...but there is at least one more verse.
