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 ...

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 A chord diagramFF chord.

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 chord diagramA augmentedA 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.
