Sink The Bismark Recorded by Johnny Horton Written by Tillman Franks and Johnny Horton
G D7 G In May of 1941 the war had just begun C G The Germans had the biggest ship that had the biggest guns
The Bismarck was the fastest ship that ever sailed the sea D7 G On her decks were guns as big as steers and shells as big as trees
D7 G Out of the cold and foggy night came the British ship the Hood C G And every British seaman he knew and understood
They had to sink the Bismarck the terror of the sea D7 G Stop those guns as big as steers and those shells as big as trees
D7 G We'll find the German battleship that's making such a fuss D7 G We gotta sink the Bismarck cause the world depends on us C G Yeah hit the decks a running boys and spin those guns around D7 G When we find the Bismarck we gotta cut her down
D7 G The Hood found the Bismarck and on that fatal day C G The Bismarck started firing fifteen miles away
We gotta sink the Bismarck was the battle sound D7 G But when the smoke had cleared away the mighty Hood went down
D7 G For six long days and weary nights they tried to find her trail C G Churchill told the people put every ship a-sail
Cause somewhere on that ocean I know she's gotta be D7 G We gotta sink the Bismarck to the bottom of the sea
Repeat #3 D7 G The fog was gone the seventh day and they saw the morning sun C G Ten hours away from homeland the Bismarck made its run
The Admiral of the British fleet said turn those bows around D7 G We found that German battleship and we're gonna cut her down
D7 G The British guns were aimed and the shells were coming fast C G The first shell hit the Bismark they knew she couldn't last That mighty German battleship is just a memory D7 G Sink the Bismark was the battle cry that shook the seven seas
D7 G We found that German battleship was makin' such a fuss D7 G We had to sink the Bismark 'cause the world depends on us C G We hit the decks a-runnin' and we spun those guns around D7 G Yeah we found that mighty Bismark and then we cut her down
Repeat last verse
