A chant sung by Newcastle United fans.

I went to Blaydon Races,
Twas on the 9th of June,
Eighteen Hundred and Sixty Two,
On a Summers Afternoon,
I 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,
And all of them were starin,
All the lads and lasses there,
They all had smilin faces,
Gannin along the Scotswood Road,
To see the Blaydon Races...

Comments: All time Geordie great

To the tune of: Blaydon Races
