Hurray! I found the lyrics to "The Ballad of the Alamo" by Marty Robbins! I love this song, but I didn't realize how long it is. Plus, the melody shifts. The melody for the beginning and end parts is completely different from that in the middle. I had always thought those were two different songs.

I'm sure this is a terribly over-romanticized version of how the actual event happened, but it still makes a great ballad.

Oh--In Texas, we call it 'the Alamo,' not 'Alamo' by itself. That is really weird, in this song. I keep wanting to add the 'the' in.

Hm. I need to dind myself a 'Texan' icon. :)

Current Mood: Texan (happy!)
