Remember the Alamo, (approximatively) as sung by Donovan
------------------

[capo 2] : on my record, he seems to use one. But if you
           want to use an harmonica, you can remove it.

3/4 :      The song is rather fast, and there are three times
           per measure.

I used a transcription that I found on the Internet, which
didn't satisfy me at all (it was made by ). I added several
chords and also an introduction, which is very sketchy ...

F  F/E  F :  you just have to lift a bit your first finger while
---------    playing a standard F chord ...

(1)--(1)--(1)
(1)--(1)--(1)
 2----2----2
 3----3----3
 3----3----3
 1----0----1


Riff

It's almost the same as above, but you have play it very fast,
without loosing the rythm, of course. Listen to the record, and
you'll understand want I mean. If you can't do it, just play
a plain F chord.

(1 1)--1--1  
(1 1)--1--1
 2-2---2--2  And so on ...

Verse 1:

C                 G           C             F    F/E   F  C    
Eight hundred and eighty were challenged by travellers to die,
C                 G             C            F  F/E F    C     C7    
By a line that he drew with his sword as the battle drew nigh,
    F                         C
Hey man that crossed over the line was for glory
    F                       C
And he that was left better fly,
    C        G            C               F  F/E F  C    G C C7
And over the line crossed one hundred and se-ven-ty nine.


Chorus :

Riff     *          *             *            *          Em
Hey      at Santa   Anna they're  killing our  soldiers below
F                         C
So the rest of Texas will know,
G     G6         C      (Play the end of the introduction)
And remember the Alamo.

Verse 2 :

Jim Bowie lay dying, his blood and the sweat in his eyes
But his knife at the ready to take him a few in reply
Young Davy Crockett lay laughing and dying
The blood and the sweat in his eyes
For Texas and for freedom a man was more willing to die.

Verse 3 :

A courier came to a battle once bloody and loud
And found only skin and bones where he left a crowd
Fear not little darling of dying
If the world is sovereign and free
For we'll fight to the last for as long as liberty be.
