Let the old men tell the story
Let the legend grow and grow
Of the 13 days of glory
At the siege of Alamo.

Lift the tattered banners proudly
While the eyes of Texas shine
Let the fort that was a mission
Be an everlasting shrine.

Cause they fought to give us freedom.
That is all we need to know
Of the 13 days of glory
At the siege of Alamo.

The Alamo Tribute - Music By Dimitri Tiomkin


Youtube took the video down.

I can't stop playing that song.  I look forward to singing it at the 13th minute of every game.

Guess I better start trying to memorize this...  Can't you find a little 7 word chant??  Or a familiar tune?? No??  Okay, okay.  I'll get to work on this one!

I think the first four blocks of this little tune would make a good chant:

[credit]Remember the Alamo
(Music and Lyrics by Gianluca Zanna Copyrights 2004)[/credit]

Remember the Alamo
remember our heroes
Remember why the died
their sacrifice

Freedom
will never die
From our ashes Texas will rise

We won’t surrender
We won’t retreat
our spirit they can’t defeat

We fought with honor
We lived with pride
as free texans we’re gonna die

==================

I like the third and fourth stanzas as a chant by themselves.

We will definitely have to build an arsenal of chants. In time, we will decide which chants will belong there. Some will be borrowed from established songs, some will be originals.

Keep the ideas flowing.

Idea: UPRISING

Muse - Uprising [OFFICIAL VIDEO]



The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They'll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around
(So come on!)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
And endless red tape to keep the truth confined
(So come on!)

[Chorus]
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious


Interchanging mind control
Come let the revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you'd see that
We should never be afraid to die
(So come on!)

Rise up and take the power back, it's time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end
We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

[Chorus]
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!(repeat)

[Chorus]
They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Hey .. hey ... hey .. hey!
(repeat)

A chant to take with us to the Houston game.

Song to the tune of "yellow submarine"  "We all live in a yellow submarine"

All we want is a team in ALAMO... A team in ALAMO.. a team in ALAMO    Repeat

In case you live under a rock and don't know the song.  Here is a link.
