VERSE 1:
G   B            C     -       C       E            D    G
 In front of the Alamo, in the fading light of the Texas day
G   B     C     -            C          C    F#    G 
    San Antonio, through the windshield of a Chevrolet
         G           B       C      C
With the front tires pointed out of town
    D         -         D#dim  -
She sighs and rolls the window down
Em        -         D                   A/C# -  A -
Counts to three and throws that wedding band

CHORUS:
G   B            C     -         C           E        F#     G
 In front of the Alamo, that's a pretty good place to make a stand

VERSE 2:
G   B            C     -          C       E             D        G
 In front of the Alamo, where the cameras click and the tourists stare
G  B          C       -     C       C      F#       G 
 A long, long time ago, she met the man in question there
    G      B          C      C          D         -         D#dim  -
She wanted trust, she wanted truth, the two things he found hard to do,
   Em    -     D                A/C#  -   A  -
So forever was shorter than she planned

CHORUS
SOLO (OVER CHORUS)

BRIDGE:
C    C       C        C   C   -   C  -
 She didn't come for inspiration,    or to
G           G      F#      F#     Em  -   Em  -
breathe the mighty dust of heroes lost,       she just
A7       -        A7     -
felt the time was right, at this
A7     -       A7     -
random traffic light, to say
Am      -   Am     -        D  -  D  -
'Enough is enough' and move on

VERSE 3: (same)
In front of the Alamo, in the fading light of the Texas day
San Antonio, through the windshield of a Chevrolet
Maybe something in the air, makes the timid braver there
To cross the line that they've drawn in the sand

MODIFIED CHORUS OUT:
G   B            C   -  D         D#dim  Em       C
 In front of the Alamo, they held on,    she lets go
G   B            C   - [C   -          2 extra beat line]
 In front of the Alamo,       that's a 
C           E        F#     G
pretty good place to make a stand

INSTR. G  B  C - | C  -  F# G (hold)
