And she was heavy laden
A7	            D

D	          A7	            D
Passing the folks along the road
G	             D
And all of them were starin'
G  E7            A
All the lads and lasses there
D
They all had smilin' faces
A7                            D
Gannin along the Scotswood Road
G	D  A7
To see the Blaydon Races

We flew past Armstrong's factory
D
And up by the Robin Adair
A7	   D
But gannin ower the Railway Bridge
G	       D
The bus wheel flew off there
E7	A7
The lasses lost their crinolines
D
And veils that hide their faces
A7	D
I got two black eyes and a broken nose
G	    D
In gannin to Blaydon Races
A7	     D

	D



Now when we got the wheel back on
D
Away we went again
A7	   D
But them that had their noses broke
G	       D
They went back ower hyem
E7	A7
Some went to the dispensary
D
And some to Doctor Gibbses
A7	D
And some to the infirmary
G	    D
To mend their broken ribses
A7	     D

We flew across the Tyne Bridge
D
And came to Blaydon Toon
A7	   D
The barman he was calling then
G	       D
They called him Jackie Broon
E7	A7
I saw him talking to some chaps
D
And them he was persuadin'

To gan and see Geordie Ridley's show

At the Mechanics' Hall in Blaydon

Now when we got to Paradise
D
There were bonny games begun
A7	   D
There were four and twenty on the bus
G	       D
And how we danced and sung
E7	A7
They called on me to sing a song
D
So I sang 'em 'Paddy Fagan'
A7	D
I danced a jig and I swung me twig
G	    D
The day I went to Blaydon
A7	     D

The rain it poured down all the day
D
And made the ground quite muddy
A7	   D
Coffee Johnny had a white hat on
G	       D
Shouted 'Wee stole the cuddy?'
E7	A7
There were spice stalls and monkey shows
D
And old wives selling ciders
A7	D
And the chap on the ha'penny roundabout
G	    D
Saying 'Any more lads for riders?'
A7	     D


Oh me lads, you should've seen us gannin
D	A7	D
Passing the folks along the road
G	D
And all of them were starin'
G      E7            A
All the lads and lasses there
D
They all had smilin' faces
A7                            D
Gannin along the Scotswood Road
G	D  A7
To see the Blaydon Races
