*The Battle Of New Orleans*
Nitty Gritty Band

In 1814 we took a little trip , along with Colonel Jackson, Down the mighty Mississipp, we took a little bacon,
And we took a little beans  and we caught the bloody British In the town of New Orleans
We fired our guns and the British kept acomin'  There wasn't nigh as many as there was awhile ago
We fired once more - And they began to runnin'  On down the Mississipi - to the Gulf of Mexico

We looked down the river, and we seed the British come And there must have been an hundred of them beating on the drum
They stepped so high  and they made the 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 began to runnin', - On down the Mississipi to the Gulf of Mexico

Old Hickory said we could take them by surprize if we didn't fire our muskets
'Till we looked them in the eyes we held our fire til we seen their faces well
Then we opened up with 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 began to runnin'  - On down the Mississpi 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 couln't go
They  ran so fast the hounds couldn't catch them  ... On down the Mississipi to the Gulf of Mexico

We fired our cannon til the barrel melted down ... So we grabbed an Aligator
And we fought another round ... We filled his head with cannon balls
And powdered his behind ... When we touched the powder off ... The 'Gator lost his mind

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 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 the hounds couldn't catch them
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico ...
