(Harris)
“My son ask for thyself another
Kingdom , for that which I leave
is too small for thee”
(King Philip of Macedonia - 339 B.C)

Am
Near to the east
             G
In a part of ancient Greece
Dm                            G---E 
In an ancient land called Macedonia
Am
Was born a son
             G
To Philip of Macedon
Dm                          G---E
The legend his name was Alexander


At the age of nineteen
He became the Macedon king
And he swore to free all of Asia minor
By the Aegian Sea
In 334 B.C.
He utterly beat the armies of Persia


Chorus:
Am            G 
Alexander the Great
    Dm                    G
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Am            G 
Alexander the Great
Dm                       G--------E Am
Became a legend ` mongst mortal men


King Darius the third
Defeated fled Persia
The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
And he founded the city called Alexandria


By the Tigris river
He met King Darius again
And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa , treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia


Chorus:
Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men

Am                                    
A Phrygian king had bound a chariot yoke
Am
And Alexander cut the “Gordian Knot”
G
And legend said that who untied the knot
Dm              G 
He would become the master of Asia

Helonism he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity

Am       G    Am  F    G
Marching on , marching on


The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander’s army line by line
They wouldn’t follow him to India
Tired of combat , pain and the glory


Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon



And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
Entering Babylon
And Susa , treasures he found
Took Persepolis the capital of Persia


Chorus:
Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
Became a God amongst mortal men


A Phrygian king had bound a chariot yoke
And Alexander cut the “Gordian Knot”
And legend said that who untied the knot
He would become the master of Asia



Helonism he spread far and wide
The Macedonian learned mind Their culture was a western way of life
He paved the way for Christianity


Marching on , marching on


The battle weary marching side by side
Alexander’s army line by line
They wouldn’t follow him to India
Tired of combat , pain and the glory


Alexander the Great
His name struck fear into hearts of men
Alexander the Great
He died of fever in Babylon
