Lyrics (for guide purposes only)

Walking on cobble stone, little bits of skin and bone
Jumping on the tram car for a ride
I can remember then, I was just a boy of ten
Hanging out along the old quayside
Not all the capstans and the cargo boats
And stevadores are gone
To where all the old ships go
But memories just like the seas live on

That was when coal was king,
The river a living thing
And I was just a boy, but it was mine,
The coaly tyne

This was a big river,
I want you all to know that I was proud
This was a big river, but that was long ago,
That's not now, that's not now

My fther was a working man,
He earned our living with his hands
He had to cross the river every day
He picked up a union card out of the neptune yard
Mouths to feed and the bills to pay
Then came a time for him to sail across the sea
And far away
Finally when the war was won
You brought him home and home he stayed

And when his days were done, under a golden sun
You carried him to where he longed to be,
Back to the sea

This was a big river,
I want you all to know that I was proud
This was a big river, but that was long ago,
That's not now

The neptune was the last to go,
I heard it on my radio
And then they played the latest number one
But what do they do all day?
And what are they supposed to say?
What does a father tell his son?
If you you believed that there's a bond between our future
And our past
Then try to hold on to what we had,
We build them strong, we built to last

'cause this is a mighty town,
It's built upon solid ground
And everything they tried so hard to kill,
We will rebuild

This was a big river
I want you all to know that I was proud
This was a big river, but that was long ago,
That's not now
This is a big river,
And in my heart I know it will rise again
The river will rise again

Paris Music Limited specialise in producing sound-a-like backing tracks for singers and performers.

Only the best musicians and vocalists are used to re-create these professional recordings and as a result they are hard to distinguish from the original song.

All our backing tracks have definite endings (no fade outs) and are always recorded in the original key unless stated otherwise. We can produce songs in keys other than the original, but prices and availability will vary from track to track. If you would like a quote for any track in a different key please Contact Us.
