Big River

Walking on cobbled stones, little bits of skin and bone Jumping on a tram car for a ride I can remember when, I was a just a boy of ten Hanging around the old Quayside. Now all the capstans and the cargo boats And Stevadores are gone To where all the old ships go But memories, just like the sea live on 'Cause that was when coal was King The river was a living thing And I was just a boy but it was mine The coaly Tyne. This was a big river I want you all to know That I was proud This was a big river But that was long ago That's not now, that's not now My father was working man He earned our living with his hands He had to cross the river every day He picked up his Union card, out of the Neptune yard Mouths to feed and bills to pay There came a time for him to sail across the sea and far away And finally when the war was won They brought him home and home he stayed And when his days were done Under a golden sun They took him back to where he longed to be
