It was on a Friday evening in November,
And the wind was very high,
When we got the report,
There were German planes up in the sky.

Now when they attacked,
They came in on the sun,
But they soon found out,
We had a man on every gun.

But our ship was numbered,
And the Nazis found their mark,
The great ship “Rohna” went down
Just after dark.

Now the water was full of men,
And they were all my buddies too,
But I know that God is taking care,
Of the ones that didn’t pull through.
