Youtube Of The Day - Johnny Horton – Sink The Bismark
November 13, 2015 6:24pm CST
A great folk song commemorating the British navy pursuit of the German’s greatest and most feared weapon, the Bismark battleship. The song captures the tragic sinking of the Hood and the pursuit in all its excitement. Very much a true story brought to life in just a few minutes. Arthur Chappell

I haven't heard this, but as a child I do remember my parents playing Johnny Horton a fair amount. Even though I was a kid, I still think he's underrated as a vocalist and story teller-he is very good at communicating historical events via song.
