In 1814 We Took A Little Trip

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.

CHORUS: We fired our guns and the British kept a’comin.
There wasn’t quite as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin’
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We looked down the river and we seen the British come.
And there must have been a hundred of’em beatin’ on the drum.
They stepped so high and they made the bugles ring.
We stood by our cotton bales and didn’t say a thing. CHORUS:

Old Hickory said we could take ’em by surprise
If we didn’t fire our muskets til we looked ’em 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. CHORUS:

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
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. CHORUS:

We fired our cannon til the barrel melted down.
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round.
We filled his head with cannon balls and powdered his behind
and when we touched the powder off, the gator blew his mind. CHORUS:

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
down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. CHORUS:
