The Lifeboat Mona (Peggy Seeger) Chorus: Remember December of fifty-nine The howling wind and driving rain Remember the gallant men who drowned On the lifeboat, Mona was her name The wind did blow and the sea rose up Beat the land with mighty waves At Saint Andrew's Bay the light ship fought The sea until her moorings gave The captain signalled to the shore "We must have help or we'll go down" From (Broughty) Ferry at two a.m. They sent the lifeboat Mona Eight men formed that gallant crew They set their boat against the main The wind's so hard and the sea's so rough We'll never see land or home again Three hours went by and the Mona called The wind blows hard and the sea runs high In the morning on (Carnusty) Beach The Mona and her crew did lie Five lay drowned in the (Chalon) there Two were washed up on the shore Eight men died when the boat capsized And the (eighth) is lost forever more Remember December of fifty-nine The howling wind and the driving rain The men who leave the land behind And the men who never see land again Remember December of fifty-nine The howling wind and the driving rain The men who leave the land behind And the men who never see land again Performed by The Dubliners.
