Solomon Browne

Album: Poor Man's Heaven (2008)
  • At fair Mount's Bay, on that Christmas week
    Was such a raging storm, no man could speak
    That lifeboat thundered through an angry sea
    Was called Solomon Browne and her company

    With courage, it was called
    On our heroes brave and bold
    With courage, it was cold
    On board that night

    Now the stricken coaster called the Union Star
    Her maiden voyage, she never thought that far
    With Captain Moreton and his four man crew
    A woman to save and her daughters two

    Now, never had a lifeboat fought in vain
    She could have made a dash for port but she tried again
    All sixteen perished in that mighty wave
    It tossed them overboard into a watery grave

    With courage, it was called
    On our heroes brave and bold
    With courage, it was cold
    On board that night

    Now back at Penlee Point, time stood still
    Twelve young children cried for their fathers killed
    A nation shed tears for years as the news went round
    The constant courage of our Solomon Browne.

    With courage, it was called
    On our heroes brave and bold
    With courage, it was cold
    On board that night

    With courage, it was called
    On our heroes brave and bold
    With courage, it was cold
