The Geordie Boy

Written by: Ann Anderson

Please dad,
please don't cry,
it's selfish for me to say,
cause dad you gave me breath,
the breath I breath today.

A strong man,
always the family fed,
dad you gave us so much more
than our want and our
daily bread.

Dad you cry, I know,
for youth you know demised
but dad to me, you'll always be
the geordie who worked the tyne.

The geordie boy
who held respect
for his decent ways
and the men he led.

Please dad,
please don't cry,
your still the man
that led his men
and I can't bear to watch you die.
