Lyrics

If I had another penny
I would buy another gill
I would make the piper play
The Bonny lads of Byker Hill.

Chorus:
|: Byker Hill and Walker Shore
Collier lads for evermore. :|

2. The pitman and the girls are trim
They drink bumble made from gin
Then to dance they do begin
To the tune of Elsie Marley.

Chorus:

3. When first I went unto the dirt
I had no coat or no pit shirt
Now I’ve gotten two or three
Walker Pit’s done well by me.

Chorus:

4. Geordie Johnson he had a pig
He hit with a shovel and it danced a jig
All the way to Walker Shore
To the tune of Elsie Marley.

Chorus:
