In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississippi
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans

This is my new favorite country song. The vocals and melody/tune/ b e a t is unparalleled . What you can call an oldie but a goodie. :)

The bloody British, lol...and they ran through the briars and they ran through the bushes. Then we bailed their rear ends out in both world wars.
