I went to Blaydon Races ’twas on the ninth of June
Eighteen hundred and sixty-two on a summer’s afternoon
We took the bus from Balmbras and she was heavy laden
Away we went along Collingwood Street
That’s on the road to Blaydon

Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races

We flew past Armstrong’s factory and up by the Robin Adair
But gannin doon te the Railway Bridge, the bus wheel flew off there
The lasses lost their crinolenes and veils that hide their faces
I got two black eyes and a broken nose in gannin to Blaydon races

Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races

Now when we got the wheel back on away we went again
But them that had their noses broke they went back over hyem
Some went to the dispensary and some to Doctor Gibbses
And some to the infirmary to mend their broken ribses

Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races
Now when we got to Paradise the bonny games began
There were four and twenty on the bus,man, how they danced and sung
They called on me to sing a song, I sang them Paddy Fagan
I danced a jig and I swung me twig the day I went to Blaydon

Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races

We flew across the Chain Bridge right into Blaydon Toon
The bellman he was calling there they called him Jackie Broon
I saw him talking to some chaps and he was them persuadin’
To gan te see Geordie Ridley’s show at the Mechanics’ Hall in Blaydon
Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races

The rain it poured down all the day and made the ground quite muddy
Coffee Johnny had a white hat on Shouted ‘Wee stole the cuddy?’
There were spice stalls and monkey shows and old wives selling ciders
And the chap on the ha’penny roundabout saying “now me boys for riders?”

Oh me lads, you should’ve seen us gannin
Passing the folks along the road just as they were stannin
All the lads and lasses there, all with smiling faces
Gannin along the Scotswood Road to see the Blaydon Races
