    I agree. Battle of New Orleans is better (I know all the words) but I never heard of the Bismark song.

    I think "The Green Berets" may be his "best" though.

    I never heard the Bismarck song either. I still have the vinyl 45 of NO and the B side is North to Alaska. i think Bismarck would have been better.

    Dang. I love Johnny Horton (and I typically hate most country music!)!!! "Battle of New Orleans" was his most famous, I think....but my second fav was "Bismark". I also loved some of his Civil War stuff, too....tryin to remember titles...."Johnny Reb" bein one, and I recall one about the Battle of Antietem. Man....wish my braincell worked better....

    I've been to Chalmette, LA where the battle of NO was fought... the song rang through my head.

    There shoulda been some verses about the Catalina that found her and the Swordfish that jammed the rudder.

    "Some long legged Cats searched far and wide
    Through miles of mist and clouds the Bismark's wake was spied
    we've found the demon ship the radio call went out
    Churchill smiled and lit a cigar, knowing it would be a rout.

    The plane they call stringbag was tote'n a mighty load
    packin a torpedo with Bismarks name on her .. it was wrote
    in the water the iron fish swum towards the towering mass.
    The ogre they call Bismark was crippled by just one splash.

    I have a 2 disc set of Johnny Horton. Rocket 88 is another good one, but I agree with you guys, I like his more historically based songs. It's a hard choice for me between Sink the Bismarck and Battle of New Orleans as my favorite one.

    I found a Youtube vid loooooong time ago...it was the "Snoopy vs. Red Baron", but the video was from an RC plane gathering. Of course, one was a Fokker triplane (red)....the other was the most awesome thing I'd ever seen, a flying doghouse! I can't find the dang vid anymore, though!
