ACROSS THE ALLEY FROM THE ALAMO
By Joe Greene
The Mills Brothers
Key: F

1   4    4  4   4   -4   4  -5 4 -3
A-cross the al-ley from the Al-a-mo
  1   1 -3  -3 -3 -3  3* -3-3* -3-2
Lived a pin-to po-ny and a Nav-a-jo
 1   3   3  -2* 3 -2*-2* 3   4 -3* 3
Who sang a sort of In-di-an "Hi-de-ho"
3   3   3   3   -2  3   -3
To the peo-ple pass-in' by

 1   4  4    4    4   -4  4  -5   4    -3
The pin-to spent his time a-swish-in' flies
 1   1  -3 -3 -3    3*   -3  -3* -3  -2
And the Nav-a-jo watched the laz-y skies
 1   3  3  -2* 3  -2*  -2*
And ver-y rare-ly did they 
3  3    4   -3*   3
Ev-er rest their eyes
3   3   3  -3*  -3  3   -2
On the peo-ple pass-in' by

-2  -3*   -3*  4  -3* -3  4
One day, they went a walk-in' 
-2 -3* -3*  -3*  -3    4
a-long the rail-road track
 -3   -3   -3   -3  3 -3  3  -2
They were swish-in' not look-in' 
 -5    -5     -3  -3  3   -2   3
Toot! Toot!, they nev-er came back

1   4    4  4   4   -4   4  -5 4 -3
A-cross the al-ley from the Al-a-mo
 1    1  -3  -3  -3  -3   3*  -3 -3* -3  -2
When the sum-mer sun de-cides to set-tle low
1  3    3   3 -2*-2* 3   4 -3* 3
A fly sings an In-di-an "Hi-de-ho"
3   3   3  -3*  -3   3  -2
To the peo-ple pass-ing by

Across the alley from the Alamo
Lived a pinto pony and a Navajo
Who used to bake frijoles in cornmeal dough
For the people passing by

They thought that they would make some easy bucks
By washin' their frijoles in Duz and Lux,
A pair of very conscientious clucks
To the people passin' by

Then they took this cheap vacation, 
their shoes were polished bright
No, they never heard the whistle, 
Toot! Toot! they're clear out of sight

Oh, across the alley from the Alamo
When the starlight beams its tender glow
The beams go to sleep and then 
there ain't no dough
For the people passin' by

One day, they went a walkin' 
along the railroad track
They were swishin' not a-lookin' 
Toot! Toot!, they never came back

Oh, across the alley from the Alamo
When the summer sun decides to settle low
A fly sings an Indian 
"Hi-de-ho"
To the people passin' by
Across the alley from the Alamo
