REMEMBER THE ALAMO (Jane Bowers) Tex Ritter - 1955 Johnny Bond - 1955 Johnny Cash - 1958 The Kingston Trio - 1959 Donovan - 1965 Willie Nelson - 1968 Don Great - 1976 John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett - 1978 Charlie Major - 1996 Asleep At The Wheel - 2003 Riders In The Sky - 2004 The Southcoasters - 2008 A hundred and eighty were challenged by Travis to die By the line that he drew with his sword when the battle was nigh The man who'll fight to the death cross over, but him would live better fly Over the line went a hundred and seventy nine Aye-yip Santa Anna, we're killin' your soldiers below That men wherever they go will remember the Alamo Though Bowie lay dyin', his powder was ready and dry >From flat on his back Bowie killed him a few in reply And brave Davy Crockett was singin' and laughin' with gallantry fierce in his eye For God and for freedom a man more than willin' to die Aye-yip Santa Anna, we're killin' your soldiers below That men wherever they go will remember the Alamo They sent a young scout from the battlements bloody and loud With words of farewell from a garrison valiant and proud Don't grieve little darlin' my dyin' if Texas is sovereign and free We'll never surrender and ever with liberty be Aye-yip Santa Anna, we're killin' your soldiers below That men wherever they go will remember the Alamo (Transcribed from the Tex Ritter recording by Mel Priddle - Sept 2010)
