Sink The Bismarck

Johnny Horton



 DAD
In  May of nineteen forty one, the  war had just be-  gun
 GD
The  Germans had the biggest ships that  had the biggest guns
 D
  The Bismarck was the fastest ship that ever sailed the seas
 DAD
  On her decks were guns as big as steers and  shells as big as  trees

 DAD
  Out of the cold and foggy night  came the British ship the  Hood
 GD
And  every British seaman, he  knew and understood
[D} They had to sink the Bismarck, the terror of the seas
 DAD
  Stop those guns as big as steers and  shells as big as  trees

Chorus
 DAD
  We'll find that German battleship that's  makin' such a  fuss
 DAD
  We gotta sink the Bismarck 'cause the  world depends on  us
 GD
  Hit the deck a-runnin' boys and  spin those guns around
 DAD
  When we find the Bismarck, we  gotta cut 'er  down

 DAD
  The Hood found the Bismarck and  on that fatal  day
 GD
  The Bismarck started firin'  fifteen miles away
 D
  We gotta sink the Bismarck, was the battle sound
 DAD
  But when the smoke had cleared away, the  mighty Hood went  down

 DAD
  For six long days and weary nights  they tried to find her  trail
 GD
  Churchill told the people, put  every ship a-sail
 D
  Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she's gotta be
 DAD
  We gotta sink the Bismarck to the  bottom of the  sea

 DAD
  The fog was gone the seventh day an' they  saw the mornin  sun
 GD
  Ten hours away from homeland, the  Bismarck made it's run
 D
  The Admiral of the British fleet said turns those bows around
 DAD
  We found that German battleship, and we're gonna cut 'er  down

 DAD
  The British guns were aimed and the  shells were coming  fast
 GD
  The first shell hit the Bismarck, they  knew she couldn't last
 D
  That mighty German battleship is just a memory
 DAD
  Sink the Bismarck was the battlecry, that  shook the seven  seas

Chorus
 DAD
  We found that German battleship that's  makin' such a  fuss
 DAD
  We had to sink the Bismarck 'cause the  world depends on  us
 GD
  We hit the deck a-runnin' and we  spun those guns around
 DAD
  Yeah we found that mighty Bismarck and we  had to  cut 'er  down
 DAD
  Yeah we found that mighty Bismarck and we  then we  cut 'er  down
