I have tried this before to no avail and so far as I know it is not recorded even by Johnny Collins who sings it. If you are successful please let me know!

Ickle Dorritt,

Johnny Collins recorded Jutland on his latest CD "Now & Then" which was recorded this summer. I think I got the words allright now:

Jutland
(Les Sullivan)

Where are you goin' my Billy-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining "Queen Mary" Nancy-O,
Joining "Queen Mary" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe,
But where is "Queen Mary"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland.

Where are you goin' my Rodney-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining "Invincible" Nancy-O,
Joining "Invincible" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe,
But where is "Invincible"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland.

Where are you goin' my Johnny-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining the "Black Prince" Nancy-O,
Joining the "Black Prince" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe,
But where is the "Black Prince"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland. ^^

Just in case you don't know and would like to know, the Battle of Jutland was a sea battle between the British and the German fleets, May 31/June 1 1916. The three ships mentioned above are three of the top four British losses ('Indefatigable' isn't a good name for a song because it's too long). Here's a table of the Battle of Jutland material losses.
The battle was a victory for the British fleet though it doesn't look so at the first glance. Britain lost a larger number of ships, more ship tonnage, and much more hands (about three times as much as Germany). The number of hits, however, saw a large British advantage. It seems curious that a fleet scoring about twice as much hits as the opposing fleet lost much more hands and slightly more material. The reason is a faulty design in British ship construction which meant that some British ships went down with very few hits whereas German ships returned into the harbour with many hits on them. For the same reason, the British ships went down very quickly taking with them nearly all hands, whereas the German ships (with one single exception) went down slowly and a large number of hands could be taken on other ships.
That so many large British pre-Dreadnought ships went down so quickly in a victorious battle after only very few hits is the historical background to the song above.
Why was it a British victory after all, despite larger losses inflicted on them? It was the last time in that war that the German fleet left the harbour. On the day following the battle, who was there on the ocean looking for survivors or enemy ships having lost their way? The loser of that particular battle but long run winner.^^

Wolfgang

Below you'll find the song in an easier to read shape, making it more probable that it'll be harvested for the DT. I have added a note to explain one name with which the non-British mudcatters might not be familiar with (sorry, if I'm wrong). A short account of that battle including a map can be found here.

(one question: how do you pronounce 'Jutland'?)

JUTLAND -
(Les Sullivan)

Where are you goin' my Billy-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining "Queen Mary" Nancy-O,
Joining "Queen Mary" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe*,
But where is "Queen Mary"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland.

Where are you goin' my Rodney-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining "Invincible" Nancy-O,
Joining "Invincible" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe,
But where is "Invincible"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland.

Where are you goin' my Johnny-O, (2x)
I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow,
That's where I'm going my Nancy.
I'm joining the "Black Prince" Nancy-O,
Joining the "Black Prince" Nancy-O,
She's bristling with guns and ready to go,
To sail to glory with Jellicoe,
But where is the "Black Prince"? Gone Now!
And where is the glory? Gone Now!
And six thousand sailors, Gone Now!
They have gone to the bottom at Jutland.

*: Jellicoe: Sir John Jellicoe, 1859-1935, commander of the British fleet at the battle of Jutland, later First Sea Lord.
