Battle Of New Orleans Lyrics

(Jimmy Driftwood)

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 beans,
and we fought the bloody British in the town of New
Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't 'bout as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

we looked down the river and we seen the British come.
There must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on a
drum.
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring.
We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a
thing.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't 'bout as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Old Hickory said we could take em by surprise,
if we didn¹t fire our muskets till we looked em in the
eyes.
We held our fire till we seen their faces well,
and opened up our squirrel guns and gave em a little
...

Well we fired our guns and the British kept a comin',
There wasn't 'bout as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Well they ran through the briars and they ran through
the brambles,
and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldn¹t
go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch em,
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fired our cannons till the barrels melted down,
so we grabbed an alligator and we fired another round.
We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his
behind,
and when we touched the powder off, the gator lost his
mind.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin,
There wasn't 'bout as many as there was awhile ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

Well they ran through the briars and they ran through
the rambles,
and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldn't
go.
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch em,
on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
