The Visitor from Whitby Town 

Was wrecked at Robin Hood's Bay 

Their crew with a longboat, spied offshore 
                       D 
At the breaking of the day 


     G 
Like Robin Hood, we no lifeboat had 
                   D 
No answer to their pleas 
       G 
So the lifeboat men from Whitby Town 

Did brave the raging seas 



N.C. C Em D Two hundred men, eight miles through the snow C Taking nothing was there for granted G C Using hope to their advantage D As they hauled C So when you're face to face with a desperate plight Think about Henry Freeman's night G C Could have written them off, could have stopped their flight N.C. Em C Em C But they never sought dawn
G Those brave young men battling the seas Were knocked back by raging gale They had no chance of landing her D No point in setting sail G So they hauled their lifeboat onto the shore D Wet from all the spray G And they pulled that boat down to Scarborough Bow Down to Robin Hood's Bay

G From Whitby and from Robin Hood's Bay The men came mountain roads Shovelling through the snowdrifts as D They toiled across the moors G They lowered her down the steepest cliffs D Into the raging seas G And the brave men onboard battled through the surf But this time wasn't to be

G Back to the shore, a fresh cool wind They launched back out to sea With John Scouten guiding them D Through rocks and through debris G The Visitor's crew were saved D The peoples worked as one G So I drink to them and the families To all that they have done
