Lifeboat Mona lyrics and chords. Peggy Seeger, recorded by The Dubliners with Luke Kelly on vocals.
 

[Chorus]
[Am]Remember December[G] fifty-[Am]nine
The howling wind and the[G] driving[E] rain
Re[Am]member the gallant[G] men who[C] drowned
On the[G] lifeboat[Em] Mona[E] was her[Am] name
 
The wind it blows and the sea roar's up
Beats the land with mighty waves
At St.Andrew's bay the lightship fought
The sea until her moorings gave
 
Three hours went by and the mona called
the wind blows hard and the sea runs high
in the morning of Carnusty beach
the Mona and her crew did lie
 
 
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 boats against the main
The wind's so hard and the sea's so rough
We'll never sea land or sea again
 
Five lay drowned in the cabin there,
two were washed up on the shore
Eight men died when the boat capsized
and the eight is lost forever more.
 
Remember December fifty-nine
the howling wind and the driving rain
The men who leave the land behind
and the men who never see their homes again.

Words With No Chords
[Chorus]
Remember December fifty-nine
The howling wind and the driving rain
Remember the gallant men who drowned
On the lifeboat Mona was her name
 
The wind it blows and the sea roar's up
Beats the land with mighty waves
At St.Andrew's bay the lightship fought
The sea until her moorings gave
 
Three hours went by and the mona called
the wind blows hard and the sea runs high
in the morning of Carnusty beach
the Mona and her crew did lie
 
 
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 boats against the main
The wind's so hard and the sea's so rough
We'll never sea land or sea again
 
Five lay drowned in the cabin there,
two were washed up on the shore
Eight men died when the boat capsized
and the eight is lost forever more.
 
Remember December fifty-nine
the howling wind and the driving rain
The men who leave the land behind
and the men who never see their homes again.

The lifeboat Mona, which over the years had saved more than 100 lives, was lost answering a distress call from the North Carr lightship. She left Broughty Ferry at 3.13 a.m. in a full gale. It is known she passed the dangerous bar of the Tay, but after that nothing further is known as to how her crew lost their lives, although it is certain she must have capsized. It was early the next day that a helicopter from R.A.F. Leuchars spotted the Mona stranded on the sands near Buddon Ness. At about the same time Senior Coastguard Officer David Mearns of Carnoustie heard of the lifeboat and alerted the life-saving team of Carnoustie. Said Officer Mearns: "One of the coastguard officers came in and said the lifeboat was on the sands. We all went down, but there was nothing we could do. The body of one man was lying on the sand a little way from the boat ... the sea rushing over him. There were four men in the wheelhouse and one in the engine room. The boat was flooded. Later we found the body of another man half a mile away across the sands
