Music I Like: The Battle of New Orleans - Johnny Horton


My friends and I sang this on the playground at school during recess. When you're eight years old, it's pretty dang cool. And to prove I've never grown up, I still like it.

When my wife was a young teacher in the mid-1970's she used "Battle of New Orleans" in the first show she had her second graders put on.

Fun song, awful costumes. And that dance routine? #shudder#

You can't go wrong with a song that has a gator in it.

James, I used to sing this song with a couple of friends at recess too. I hope your version sounded better than ours.
