Alamo

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Alamo
Heard all about your fandango
Banged on my knees on your back door
Only to wake you to blues on the way
Blues on the way
Blues on the way

Embarcadero
Figures you'll see me as a older
23 hours till the border
Don't think I'll be going as fast as I came
Fast as I came
Fast as I came

Tears on my pillow
Of course they're not mine
Alter that altar
Making a play
Somebody invent the telephone line
I'll take my chances

Alamo
Wish I could do what gold does
Heard that the stars were in order
Got yourself dealt a hand with two queen of spades
And blues on the way
Blues on the way

Tears on my pillow
Of course they're not mine
Alter that altar
Making a play
Somebody just
Somebody invent the telephone line
I'll take my chances


"Alamo"
October 20, 1996 - Ft. Meyers, Florida
