Sink The Bismarck  Johnny Horton



In [D] May of nineteen forty one, the [A] war had just be- [D] gun
The [G] Germans had the biggest ships that [D] had the biggest guns
[D] The Bismarck was the fastest ship that ever sailed the seas
[D] On her decks were guns as big as steers and [A] shells as big as [D] trees
[D] Out of the cold and foggy night [A] came the British ship the [D] Hood
And [G] every British seaman, he [D] knew and understood
[D} They had to sink the Bismarck, the terror of the seas
[D] Stop those guns as big as steers and [A] shells as big as [D] trees

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


[D] The Hood found the Bismarck and [A] on that fatal [D] day
[G] The Bismarck started firin' [D] fifteen miles away
[D] We gotta sink the Bismarck, was the battle sound
[D] But when the smoke had cleared away, the [A] mighty Hood went [D] down
[D] For six long days and weary nights [A] they tried to find her [D] trail
[G] Churchill told the people, put [D] every ship a-sail
[D] Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she's gotta be
[D] We gotta sink the Bismarck to the [A] bottom of the [D] sea
[D] The fog was gone the seventh day an' they [A] saw the mornin [D] sun
[G] Ten hours away from homeland, the [D] Bismarck made it's run
[D] The Admiral of the British fleet said turns those bows around
[D] We found that German battleship, and we're [A]gonna cut 'er [D] down
[D] The British guns were aimed and the [A] shells were coming [D] fast
[G] The first shell hit the Bismarck, they [D] knew she couldn't last
[D] That mighty German battleship is just a memory
[D] Sink the Bismarck was the battlecry, that [A] shook the seven [D] seas
Chorus
[D] We found that German battleship that's [A] makin' such a [D] fuss
[D] We had to sink the Bismarck 'cause the [A] world depends on [D] us
[G] We hit the deck a-runnin' and we [D] spun those guns around
[D] Yeah we found that mighty Bismarck and we [A] had to  cut 'er [D] down
[D] Yeah we found that mighty Bismarck and we [A] then we  cut 'er [D] down
