Byker Hill / Elsie Marley

 

Lyrics

BYKER HILL

If I had another penny
I would have another gill
I would have the fiddler play
The bonnie lads of Byker Hill

Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore
Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore

When I came to Walker work
I had no coat and no pit sack
Now I’m getting two or three
Walker pits done well for me

Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore
Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore

If I had another penny
I would have another gill
I would have the fiddler play
The bonnie lads of Byker Hill

Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore
Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore

Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore
Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads forevermore
