  • Battle Of The Forum Migration

    Battle of the Forum Migration (same as Battle of New Orleans, only different)

    VERSE
    In twenty thirteen we took a little trip
    Down the Migration River in this lousy sinking ship.
    We took a couple capos and we donned our cleanest jeans
    And we caught those bloody tech guys and we kicked them till they screamed.

    CHORUS
    We pressed return and guitarist's kept a coming
    There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while a- go
    Then we clicked our mice and they began a runnin'
    And we dumped this rotten forum in the Gulf of Mexico.

    VERSE
    Well we looked at our browser's and we watched the errors come
    There musta been a hund'erd of 'em, no one's having fun
    They froze our screens and they made our keyboards ring
    We stood beside our music stands and didn't say a thing.

    CHORUS 1X

    VERSE
    OldTwelver said we could take 'em by su'prise
    If we didn't strum our axe's till we looked them in the eyes
    We held our picks till we see'd their faces well
    Then we opened up with E chords and really gave 'em ... Well -

    REPEAT 1ST CHORUS

    2ND CHORUS
    Yeah! they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles
    And they ran through the bushes where a tech guy shouldn't go
    They ran so fast that guitarist's couldn't catch 'em
    Down the Migration River to the Gulf of Mexi- co.

      Love it! One suggestion. In the chorus make the line

      "There wasn't NEAR as many as there was a while ago."

       

      Just for the cadence.

        Thank you for the suggestion. I did the original with my teeth in a glass on the counter. With them glued in, your version works better !

        Very good suggestion, and I sure hope you don't think I'm splitting hairs, but in the original Johnny Horton version, it was "there wasn't NIGH as many as there was awhile ago".

        for the record, I completely concur with the use of "nigh" as many instead of "near."  when I suggested "near" I did not know that we were using an actualy line from the song.  Old Twelver and I come from the part of the world where people still actually say "near as many..."
