[Verse 1]
In [A]1814 we [D]took a little trip
[E7]Along with Colonel Jackson down the [A]mighty Mississip’
We took a little bacon and we [D]took a little beans
And we [E7]caught the bloody British in a [A]town in New Orleans

[Chorus]
We [A]fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there [E7]was a while [A]ago
[A]We fired once more and they begin to Runnin
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexi[A]co

[Verse 2]
We [A]looked down the river.
And we [D]see’d the British come,
And there [E7]must have been a hundred of ’em.
[A]Beatin’ on the drums.
[A]They stepped so high.
And they [D]made their bugles ring.
[E7]We stood beside our cotton bales.
And [A]didn’t say a thing.

[Chorus]
We f[A]ired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there [E7]was a while [A]ago
[A]We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexi[A]co

[Verse 3]
Old [A]Hickory said we could [D]take ’em by surprise.
If we [E7]didn’t fire our muskets.
‘Till we [A]looked ’em in the eye.
[A]We held our fire.
‘Till we [D]see’d their faces well
Then we [E7]opened up our squirrel guns
And [A]really gave ’em – well we

[Chorus]
[A]Fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there [E7]was a while [A]ago
[A]We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexi[A]co

Yeah, they [A]ran through the briars.

And they ran through the brambles.

And they ran through the bushes.
Where a [E7]rabbit couldn’t [A]go.
[A]They ran so fast.

That the hounds couldn’t catch ’em.
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexico.

[Verse 4]
We [A]fired our cannon ’til the [D]barrel melted down
So we [E7]grabbed an alligator and we [A]fought another round
[A]We filled his head with cannon balls, and [D]powdered his behind
And [E7]when we touched the powder off the [A]gator lost his mind

[Chorus]
We [A]fired our guns and the British kept a-comin’
There wasn’t nigh as many as there [E7]was a while [A]ago
[A]We fired once more and they begin to runnin’
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexi[A]co

[Outro]
Yeah, they [A]ran through the briars.

And they ran through the brambles.

And they ran through the bushes.
Where a [E7]rabbit couldn’t [A]go.
[A]They ran so fast.

That the hounds couldn’t catch ’em.
On down the Mississippi to the [E7]Gulf of Mexi[A]co.
