We fired our guns and the British kept a comin`, There wasn`t `bout as many as there was awhile ago. We fired once more and they began to runnin` On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Oh we looked down the river and we seen the British come. There must have been a hundred of `em beatin` on a drum. They stepped so high and they made their bugles ring. We stood behind our cotton bales and didn`t say a thing. Old Hickory said we could take em by surprise, if we didnąt fire our muskets till we looked em in the eyes.

We fired once more and they began to runnin` On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Well they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles, and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldnąt go. They ran so fast that the hounds couldn`t catch em, on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

We fired our guns and the British kept a comin, There wasn`t `bout as many as there was awhile ago. We fired once more and they began to runnin On down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Well they ran through the briars and they ran through the rambles, and they ran through the bushes where a rabbit wouldn`t go. They ran so fast that the hounds couldn`t catch em, on down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.
