Battle of New Orleans
In 1814 we took a little trip Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip. We took a little bacon and we took a little bean. And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans. (Repeat Chorus #1) We fired our guns and the British kept a comin. There wasn't as many as there was a while ago. (CHORUS #1) We fired once more and they began a runnin On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. They ran through the briar and they ran through the bramble. And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go. They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch them. (CHORUS #2) On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. We looked down the river. We could see the British come. There must've been a hundred of em beatin on the drum. They stepped so high that they made the bugles sing. We stood behind our cottontails and didn't say a thing. (Repeat Chorus #1) We bet 3 cents we could take em by surprise If we didn't fire muskets till we looked em in the eyes. We held our fire till we could see their faces well. We opened up our squirrel guns and really gave them well. (Repeat Both Choruses) We held our fire till the barrel melted down. So we grabbed an alligator and we called another round. We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind. And we touched the powder off and the gator lost his mind. (Repeat Both Choruses)
