Subject: RE: The Battle of New Orleans
Johnny Horton's BoNO recording was about my 1st exposure to the Folk Tradition. In 1984 (abouts) I penned my own version of -

The Battle of New Oil-Lease (CHORUS)

Iran thru the presses and
Iran thru the papers
Iran thru the White House where the oil money flows
Iran so bad, our Army couldn't catch them
They took our radar bases
In the Gulf of Texaco

In light of the Deep Horizon disaster, it might be time to update the lyrics to this parody tune.
