The volunteers crept in the afternoon
And we'd been drinking through the night
Our reinforcements and elaborate ruse
And our perimeter defenses were too light

Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh

The foolish general sat and sipped his wine
While the fire took Vince's bridge
Posted no sentries or he surely would have known
That his demons had come back for their revenge
And so the cannons roared
Turned to the sound of clashing swords
And our colors fell somewhere along the shore
Of the San Jacinto
Ah, San Jacinto

Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh

Then all was quiet in the afternoon
As the smoke gave way to night
The rebels brought a call for Goliad's revenge
And they had a flag to match their eyes
And so the cannons roared
Turned to the sound of clashing swords
And our colors fell somewhere along the shore
Of the San Jacinto
Ah, San Jacinto

Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh

Ah, oh
Ah, oh
Ah, oh
