-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:Xaxu
Tuning:Standard

I found this a long time ago but when i tried to look for again it was gone.
I take no credit for this tab. I am simply bringing it here for everyone else.
You can either play the chords above the staff or fingerpick the song.
I put the lyrics underneath the staff so to show how slow to play it.

   A                    D  
In Eighteen-Fourteen we took a little trip 
 E                                  A 
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip' 
   A                          D 
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans 
       E                                A 
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a-comin' 
             A                            E         A  
But, there wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago 
   A                    A 
We fired once more and they began to runnin' 
   A                           E           A  
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf Of Mexico

We looked down the river and we seen the British come 
          E                               A
And there must have been a hundred of 'em beatin' on the drum 
     A                        D
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring 
   E                                 A
We stood beside our cotton bales and didn't say a thing

Ol Hickory said we could take 'em by surprise '
      E                               A
If we didn't fire our muskets 'til we looked 'em in the eyes 
   A                     D
We held our fire till we seen their faces well 
         E                            A
Then, we opened our squirrel guns and really gave 'em....well we,

And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em

We fired our cannon 'til the barrel melted down
      E                           A
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round 
   A                                    D
We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind 
    E                                A
And when we set the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind.
