Blaydon Races: NUFC Songs


Newcastle

Great vintage chant

Lyrics

I went to Blaydon Races 'Twas on the 9th of June Eighteen Hundred and Sixty Two On a Summer's Afternoon We took the bus from Balmbras And she was heavy laden Away we went along Collingwood Street That's on the Road to Blaydon Chorus: Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin' Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin' Aal the lads and lasses there aal wi' smilin' faces Gannin along the Scotswood Road To see the Blaydon Races We flew past Armstrong's factory And up by the Robin Adair gannin ower the Railway Bridge The bus wheel flew off there The lasses lost their crinolenes And the veils that hide their faces I got two black eyes and a broken nose gannin t' Blaydon Races Oh me lads... Now when we got the wheel back on Away we went again But them that had their noses broke They went back ower hyem Some went to the dispensary And some to Doctor Gibbses And some to the infirmary To mend their broken ribses Oh me lads... Now when we got to Paradise There were bonny games begun There were four and twenty on the bus And how we danced and sung They called on me to sing a song and I sung 'em 'Paddy Fagan' I danced a jig and I swung me twig The day wi' went to Blaydon Oh me lads... We flew across the Chain Bridge And into Blaydon Toon The bellman he was calling then They called him Jackie Broon I saw him talking to some chaps And them he was persuadin' To gan and see Geordie Ridley's show At the Mechanics' Hall in Blaydon Oh me lads... The rain it poured down all the day And made the ground quite muddy Coffee Johnny had a white hat on Shouted 'Whi stole the cuddy?' There were spice stalls and monkey shows And owld wives selling ciders And a chap on a ha'penny roundaboot Saying 'noo me lads for riders?' Oh me lads... (to fade)
