Description

From the London Phase 4 1972 "Film Spectacular Vol. 4 - The Epic" album (SP 44173) - Stanley Black conducting the London Festival Orchestra and Chorus.

Music: Dimitri Tiomkin
Lyrics: Paul Francis Webster

"Let the old men tell the story
Let the legend grow and grow
Of the thirteen days of glory
At the seige of Alamo.

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

Once they fought to give us freedom.
That is all we need to know
Of the thirteen days of glory
At the seige of Alamo ...


A time to be reaping, a time to be sowing,
The green leaves of summer are calling me home.
It was good to be young then in the season of plenty
When the catfish were jumping as high as the sky.

A time just for planting, a time just for plowing,
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own.
T'was so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth.

The green leaves of summer are calling me home ..."
