Well, it exists. Found it on a CD here, but I can't find any lyrics on line, and I don't know it.

THE PIPER AT THE ALAMO
As sung by Isla St. Clair on "When the Pipers Play" (1998)
CHORUS: He came down to Texas from the Scottish shore,
Came down to fight in the Mexican war.
McGregor was the piper at the Alamo,
The piper at the Alamo.
1. His name was John McGregor, defiant and tall.
He played through the siege, thirteen days in all.
He played through the madness of the bloody fight.
He played through the sadness on the final night.
2. He piped for the defenders as the sun did rise,
With hope and glory shining his eyes,
And though the line was broken, he played so well,
He played for Texas as the eagle fell.
3. Now the guns are silent; no bugle calls.
The ghost of McGregor haunts the mission walls.
If you listen carefully, on a winter's day,
You can feel his spirit; you can hear him play.
