rumanci Lyr Req: Solomon Browne (Paul Sirman) (24) RE: Lyr Req: Solomon Brown (Paul Sirman) 09 Aug 12

There may be a couple of stray words up for discussion Joe but here's the rest for now:-

(Paul Sirman)

On the nineteenth of December in the year of '81
'Round the coast of Cornwall, a bitter storm begun.
While fishing boats they ran for port to shelter from the storm
The "Union Star" was foundering, her fate was known by none(?).

The rugged coast of Cornwall is famed to those who sail,
To fight the sea when the gales blow, many were due to fail.
From Penlee Point the lifeboat came, her name was "Solomon Browne"
From Mousehole came her gallant crew, these men of great renown.

Four times they battled as the boats they ______ around
To save all hands from the "Union Star" to suffer from running aground
Four timely battles fought? but alas it was all in vain
After 9:30 on that fateful night she was never heard from again.

The memory of those gallant men will live for ever more
The memory of that awful night will remain with those on shore.
Eight men who fought the raging main to save those in distress
Now we hold their pain, the suffering's gone, their souls are now at rest.
