DTwas on the ninth of June A7Eighteen Hundred and SDixty Two GOn a summer's afternoDon E7I took the bus A7from Balmbras DAnd she was heavy laden A7Away we went along CDollingwood Street GThat's on the Road toD Blaydon

D

We flew past Armstrong's factory DAnd up by the Robin Adair A7But gannin Dower the Railway Bridge GThe bus wheel fDlew off there E7The lassA7es lost their crinolines DAnd veils that hide their faces A7I got twDo black eyes and a broken nose GIn gannin toD Blaydon Races

D

Now when we got the wheel back on DAway we went again A7But them thDat had their noses broke GThey went back Dower hyem E7Some wenA7t to the dispensary DAnd some to Doctor Gibbses A7And someD to the infirmary GTo mend theiDr broken ribses

A7 D

D

We flew across the Tyne Bridge DAnd came to Blaydon Toon A7The barman Dhe was calling then GThey called himD Jackie Broon E7I saw hiA7m talking to some chaps DAnd them he was persuadin' A7To gan aDnd see Geordie Ridley's show GAt the MechaDnics' Hall in Blaydon

D

Now when we got to Paradise DThere were bonny games begun A7There were Dfour and twenty on the bus GAnd how we dancDed and sung E7They calA7led on me to sing a song DSo I sang 'em 'Paddy Fagan' A7I dancedD a jig and I swung me twig GThe day I weDnt to Blaydon

D

The rain it poured down all the day DAnd made the ground quite muddy A7Coffee JohnDny had a white hat on GShouted 'Wee stDole the cuddy?' E7There weA7re spice stalls and monkey shows DAnd old wives selling ciders A7And the Dchap on the ha'penny roundabout GSaying 'Any Dmore lads for riders?'
