Bert Hansell Origins: Grace Darling (from Walter Pardon) (24) LYR: Grace Darling 18 Jul 97

Seeing the thread about the Lifeboat Mona reminded me of a song my Father used to sing about Grace Darling.

It was evidently based on a true event
Does anyone know any more of it? This snippet sounds as though it might be the chorus.

She pulled away on the dashing spray, over the waters blue
"Help, help", she could hear the cry of the shipwrecked crew
But Grace had an English heart and the stormy winds she braved
She pulled away on the dashing spray
and the crew she saved.
