5.15 a.m.
                        (A)  G
Snow laying all around

A collier cycles home
                            D/A   A
From his night shift underground

Past the silent pub
                                  Em
Primary school, workingmens club

On the road from the pithead
                G
The churchyard packed
             D/A
With mining dead


D

Then beneath the bridge

He comes to a giant car
     G
A shroud of snow upon the roof
               D   A
A mark ten jaguar

He thought the man was fast asleep
                        Em
Silent, still and deep

Both dead and cold
  D/F#  G
Shot through
             D
With bullet holes


GMaj7
                          G6
The one armed bandit man
                              D
Came north to fill his boots

Came up from cockneyland
                             GMaj7
E-type jags and flashy suits

Put your money in
 G6
Pull the levers
                D
Watch them spin

Cash cows in all the pubs

But he preferred the new nightclubs


A

Nineteen sixty-seven
                               Bm
Bandit men in birdcage heaven
  
La dolce vita, sixty-nine
     G                         D  A
All new to people of the Tyne


D

Who knows who did what

Somebody made a call
      G
They said his hands

Were in the pot
                         D     A
That he’d been skimming hauls

He picks up the swag
                      Em
They gaily gave away

Drives his giant jag
D/F#  G              D
Off  to his big pay day


GMaj7
                   G6
Oh the bandit man
                              D
Came north to fill his boots

Came up from cockneyland
                              GMaj7
E-type jags and flashy suits
                G6
The bandit man
                              D
Came up the great north road

Up to geordieland

To mine

The mother lode


| A | G/A | A | G/A |

D

Seams blew up or cracked
                              G
Black diamonds came hard won

Generations toiled and hacked
                          D    A
For a pittance and black lung

Crushed by tub or stone

Together
           Em
And alone

How the young and old
       D/F#  G       D
Paid the   price of coal


A

Eighteen sixty-seven
                           Bm
My angel’s gone to heaven
                      G
He’ll be happy there
                              D  A
Sunlight and sweet clean air


D/A

They gather round the glass
                           Bm
Tough hewers and crutters

Child trappers and putters
                 Em         A       Em
The little foals and half-marrows

Who pushed
                A       Em
And pulled the barrows

The hod boys
         G            D/A
And the rolleywaymen
