Solomon Browne - Seth Lakeman
------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Laurence Wilson 17.09.09

Tuning: E A E A C# E (Open A)
Capo: 8th Fret

Seth plays this live (and solo) on a tenor guitar tuned to G-D-G-D with a capo at
the 10th fret. I've arranged this for six strings in a similar style. Allow all
six strings to ring out during the intro and chorus riff.

               Dadd9       E         A
At fair Mounts Bay on that Christmas week
                  Dadd9    E         A
Was such a raging storm no man could speak
              Dadd9                E     F#m7
That lifeboat thundered through an angry sea
                   Dadd9          E     A
Was called Solomon Browne and her company

Dadd9                    A
Good courage it was called
E                       A
Our heroes brave and bold
Dadd9                    A
Good courage it was called
 E        A
Upon that night

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

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

Good courage it was called
Our heroes brave and bold
Good courage it was called
Upon 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

Good courage it was called
Our heroes brave and bold
Good courage it was called
Upon that night

Good courage it was called
Our heroes brave and bold
Good courage it was called
Upon that night
