The Blaydon Races; A Geordie folk song.

I went to Blaydon Races
DTwas on the ninth of June
A7 DEighteen Hundred and Sixty Two
G DOn a summer's afternoon
E7 A7I took the bus from Balmbras
DAnd she was heavy laden
A7 DAway we went along Collingwood Street
G DThat's on the Road to Blaydon
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
G D A7To see the Blaydon Races
D We flew past Armstrong's factory
DAnd up by the Robin Adair
A7 DBut gannin ower the Railway Bridge
G DThe bus wheel flew off there
E7 A7The lasses lost their crinolines
DAnd veils that hide their faces
A7 DI got two black eyes and a broken nose
G DIn gannin to Blaydon Races
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
G D A7To see the Blaydon Races
D Now when we got the wheel back on
DAway we went again
A7 DBut them that had their noses broke
G DThey went back ower hyem
E7 A7Some went to the dispensary
DAnd some to Doctor Gibbses
A7 DAnd some to the infirmary
G DTo mend their broken ribses
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
G D A7To see the Blaydon Races
D We flew across the Tyne Bridge
DAnd came to Blaydon Toon
A7 DThe barman he was calling then
G DThey called him Jackie Broon
E7 A7I saw him talking to some chaps
DAnd them he was persuadin'
A7 DTo gan and see Geordie Ridley's show
G DAt the Mechanics' Hall in Blaydon
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
G D A7To see the Blaydon Races
D Now when we got to Paradise
DThere were bonny games begun
A7 DThere were four and twenty on the bus
G DAnd how we danced and sung
E7 A7They called on me to sing a song
DSo I sang 'em 'Paddy Fagan'
A7 DI danced a jig and I swung me twig
G DThe day I went to Blaydon
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
G D A7To see the Blaydon Races
D The rain it poured down all the day
DAnd made the ground quite muddy
A7 DCoffee Johnny had a white hat on
G DShouted 'Wee stole the cuddy?'
E7 A7There were spice stalls and monkey shows
DAnd old wives selling ciders
A7 DAnd the chap on the ha'penny roundabout
G DSaying 'Any more lads for riders?'
A7 D Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D A7 DPassing the folks along the road
G DAnd all of them were starin'
G E7 AAll the lads and lasses there
DThey all had smilin' faces
A7 DGannin along the Scotswood Road
