Remember the Alamo

Return to Tales from a Draughty old Fen: Top ten songs about places

A hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die
By the line that he drew with his sword when the battle was nigh.
Any man that would fight to the death cross over,
But him that would live better fly
And over the line went a hundred and seventy nine

Hey Santa Anna we're killing your soldiers below,
That men where ever they go, will remember the Alamo

Jim Bowie lay dyin', but his powder was ready and dry
Flat on his back Bowie killed him a few in reply
And young David Crockett was singin' and laughin',
With gallantry fierce in his eyes
For God and for freedom, a man's more than willin' to die

Hey Santa Anna we're killing your soldiers below,
that men where ever they go, will remember the Alamo

And then 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 with liberty be"

Hey Santa Anna we're killing your soldiers below,
that men where ever they go, will remember the Alamo!

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote
and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too
am an aspiring blog
writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any
recommendations for novice blog writers? I'd definitely
appreciate it.
