Byker Bank                                                              By: Jack Routledge

G                                 C                  G                   D      
They're pulling down old Byker bank, down come those old streets rank on rank
D             G             C                  G        D         G
Oh fare you well old Raby street, you leave behind you memories so sweet

G                              C                 G               D      
And now their end those houses meet, from Union road to Dalton street
D                G             C                  G              D         G
From shepherds yard to Albion row, the wreckers pull the ropes and down they go

G                             C                    G          D              
When we were kids we used to roam, all over Byker miles from home
D              G                 C                            G              D        G
Down to the burn and the old quayside, chuck bricks at ships along the river Tyne

G                              C                G                   D           
Down Granny's park we used to play, a football match lasting all the day
D                G             C                  G          D         G
Then to the plagie just to be seen, the Parky chased us of the bowling green

G                              C                   G                       D         
The wash house standing in the rain, the smell of washing through a broken pane
D                G                   C                  G                D         G
The tram cars rattled as they swayed along, the trolley busses sang their silent song

G                               C                 G                   D         
We used to run up and down the lane, from top to bottom and then back again
D                   G                C                    G                  D         G
But now those back lanes they are no more, you can't play football on the fourteenth floor

G                    C                           G                  D           
Cos we live in these super flats, you can't keep pigeons, dogs or cats
D           G                  C                  G                 D        G
To pay the rent is extremely hard, but from the lounge you can see the naval yard

G                                 C                     G              D     
And now old Byker has been pulled down, they're building us a brand new town
D                G             C                     G                   D         G
We hope the planners can understand, you can't build people out of bricks and sand

G                              C                     G                           D   
They're pulling down old Byker bank, down come those old streets rank on rank
D              G             C                  G     D         G
Oh fare you well old Raby street, you leave behind you memories so sweet
