The Battle Of New Orleans
Performed by Warren 'Potsie' Weber

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 caught the bloody British in the town of 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 began to runnin'
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

We looked down the river and we seed the British come
And there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the 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 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

Old Hickory 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 seed their faces well
Then we opened up our squirrel guns and 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 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 cannon till the barrel melted down
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round,
We filled his head with cannonballs 'n' 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 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 that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico

Hut, hut, three, four,
Sound off, three, four,
Hut, hut, three, four
