"Battle of New Orleans" Pre-match I've dreamt of singing this against England for years. Is this my chance? BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS (Written by Jimmy Driftwood) Johnny Horton 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 a town in New Orleans. We fired our guns and the British kept a-coming There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago. We fired once more, and they began to running, On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
