The Battle Of New Orleans chords
Johnny Horton (Jimmy Driftwood)

Capo I

F G
F F G F

   F       F
In 1814 we took a little trip
 G7                              F
Along with Col. Jackson down the mighty mississip'd
                              F
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
       G7                             F
And we caught the bloody British in a town in New Orleans.

   F
We fired our guns and the British kept a comin'
                              G7           F
There wasn't as many as there was a while ago

We fired once more and they began to runnin'
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

   F                            F
We looked down the river and we see'd the British come
          G7                           F
And there musta been a hund'erd of 'em beatin' on the drum 
                              F
They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring
   G7                                F
We stood beside our cotton bales and didn't say a thing. 

   F
We fired our guns and the British kept a comin'
                              G7           F
There wasn't as many as there was a while ago

We fired once more and they began to runnin'
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

    F                     F
Old Hick'ry said we could take 'em by su'prise 
      G7                             F
If we didn't fire our musket till we looked 'em in the eyes 
                         F              
We held our fire till we see'd their faces well 
        G7                               F
Then we opened up with squirrel guns and really gave 'em ... Well -

   F
We fired our guns and the British kept a comin'
                              G7           F
There wasn't as many as there was a while ago

We fired once more and they began to runnin'
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

           F
Yeah! they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
                                        G7              F
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. 

   F                         F
We fired our cannon till the barrel melted down 
      G7                          F
So we grabbed an alligator and we fought another round
                                        F
We filled his head with cannonballs and powdered his behind 
    G7                                  F
And when we touched the powder off, the 'gator lost his mind. 

   F
We fired our guns and the British kept a comin'
                              G7           F
There wasn't as many as there was a while ago

We fired once more and they began to runnin'
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

           F
Yeah! they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
                                        G7              F
And they ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

They ran so fast that the hounds couldn't catch 'em
                               G7          F
On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
