[Verse 1]~
Not tonight of any night said the Coxwain of the crew

G                                 D             G
The chances of survival on a night like this are few

G                    C        G
December 1940 on the coast of Donegal

G
Came a great north wind

G
That could have been the cruellest of them all

G                   D         C      G
14 men were missing 18 more in great destress

G
Jack Boyle knew that their future in his hands had come to rest

G                              C                G
He knew a man who knew the sea if any man would know

G                                D         C       G
We’ll show the way without delay O’Donnell said I’ll go


[Chorus]~
G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                   Em       C       Em            G
I’ll go cause I’m a lifeboat man I am my father’s son

G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                    Em       C       Em          G
I’ll go cause I’m an island man I am my father’s son


[Verse 2]~
G
The neighbours watch them gather and they cast a worried eye

G                                D                  G
And wondered how that lifeboat crew could possible survive

G                   C                 G
They all agree that some at least the greatest price would pay

G
And old the men shed a tear and knelt down on the ground to pray

G                                  D         C      G
While standin on the pier with his handpicked squad of men

G
Jack told each of one that they might never see their homes again

G                               C                      G
And he told that there would be no shame if this time they said no

G                                  D           C       G
Each traced a cross upon his brow,.. stepped up and said I’ll go


[Chorus]~
G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                   Em       C       Em            G
I’ll go cause I’m a lifeboat man I am my father’s son

G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                    Em       C       Em          G
I’ll go cause I’m an island man I am my father’s son


[Verse 3]~
G
Against the storm against the gale against the mighty waves

G                                  D                  G
Those men were rightly honoured as the bravest of the brave

G                     C               G
And let everyone salute them and thank god for men like these

G
Who would risk their lives for strangers in peril on the seas

G                             D         C      G
O’Donnell,.. Ward and Gallagher remember these names well

G
With the Boyles,.. Byrne’s and Rodgers they faced the seas from hell

G                              C              G
With the waves above them crashing down and a heaving mass below

G                                D        C      G
God bless them everyone who made the vow to say I’ll go


[Chorus]~
G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                   Em       C       Em            G
I’ll go cause I’m a lifeboat man I am my father’s son

G                             C                    G
I’ll go and do the best I can I’ll do what must be done

G                    Em       C       Em          G
I’ll go cause I’m an island man I am my father’s son


[Verse 4]~
G
Now this volunteer lifeboat crew Illion Arranmore

G                                 D                   G
They faced the biggest storm that they had ever seen before

G                     C                 G
But they brought them 18 sailors home and left them on the land

G
Now their safe
