The Battle of New Orleans Lyrics

The Battle of New Orleans Lyrics

Well, 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
We met the bloody British in a town near New Orleans

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

We looked down a river
And we see’d the British come
And there must havе been a hundred of ’em
Beatin’ on thе drums

They stepped so high
And they made their bugles ring
We stood beside our cotton bales
And didn’t say a thing

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

Old Hickory said
We could take ’em by surprise
If we didn’t fire our muskets
‘Till we looked ’em in the eye

We held our fire ’till we see 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’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

They ran through the briars
And they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes
Where the 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 cannon ’til the barrel melted down
So we grabbed an alligator and we fired another round
We filled his head with cannon balls, and powdered his behind
And when we touched the powder off the gator lost his mind

They ran through the briars
And they ran through the brambles
And they ran through the bushes
Where the 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 guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there was a while ago
We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

To the Gulf of Mexico
To the Gulf of Mexico
