BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS recorded by Johnny Horton written by Jimmie Driftwood
C F In 1814 we took a little trip G7 C Along with Col. Jackson down the mighty mississip' F We took a little bacon and we took a little beans G7 C And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans
We fired our guns and the British kept a comin' G7 C There wasn't as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they began to runnin' G7 C On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
We looked down the river and we see'd the British come And there musta been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring We stood beside our cotton bales and didn't say a thing
Old Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise If we didn't fire our musket till we looked 'em in the eyes We held our fire till we see their faces well Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em Well...
Yeah! They ran through the briers and they ran through the brambles G7 C And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go
They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em G7 C On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico
We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down So 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
Repeat 1st chorus
