    The 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 beans,

    And we fought the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

    We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',

    But there wasn't not as many as there was awhile ago.

    Fired once more and they began to runnin'

    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    Well, we looked down the river and we see'd the British come.

    And there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum.

    They stepped so high and they made the bugle ring.

    We stood behind our cotton bales and didn't say a thing.

    We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',

    But there wasn't not as many as there was awhile ago.

    Fired once more and they began to runnin'

    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    Old Hick'ry said we could take 'em by surprise,

    If we didn't fire our muskets till we looked 'em in the eyes.

    We held our fire till we see'd their faces well,

    Then we opened up our squirrel guns and really gave 'em.....well,

    We fired our guns and the British kept a comin',

    But there wasn't not as many as there was awhile ago.

    Fired once more and they began to runnin'

    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    Yeah, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles.

    And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.

    They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em,

    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    We fired our cannons till the barrel melted down,

    Then we grabbed an alligator and we fought 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',

    But there wasn't not as many as there was awhile ago.

    Fired once more and they began to runnin'

    On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
