Bar538 [Synopsis] 

 [Notation]

O, ye taak aboot travels an' voyages far,
But thor's few beat the trip fre' the toon to the bar¹ ;
As ye gan doon to Tynemouth yell hear the chop shoot-
"Here's Howdon for Jarrow, maa Hinnies¹, loup¹ oot! [Note 538.1]

Chorus: Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
              Howdon for Jarrow, maa hinnies, loup oot"

When yen hes been doon bi' the side o' the Tyne,
An' seen a' the smoke an' the chimlies see fine ;
Thor's mony a voice that is welcome, nee doot,
But the bonniest soond that Aa knaa is "Loup oot !"
Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow, maa hinnies, loup oot"

Sin' Aa knew the banks o' wor aan bonny river,
Thor's been changes gan' on, an' thor's noo mair than iver ;
But the finest ov aa', barrin' change o' the wind,
Is when the soft voice caals, an' then ye aal find,
"Ye mun change here for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow, maa hinnies, loup oot !"

Thor's chemicals, copper, coals, clarts¹, coke, an' stone,
Iron ships, wooden tugs, salt, an' saadust, an' bone,
Manure, an steam ingins, bar iron, an' vitr'ol
Grunstans an' puddlers (Aa like to be litt'ral),
At Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow, maa hinnies, loup oot

Besides on wor river we hev the big dredgers, [Note 538.3]
That howeks oot the muck, man, Aa's sure we're nee fledgers,
An' then the greet hopper¹ works like a wheelbarrow,- [Note 538.4]
Ye'll see'd if ye come doon te Howdon for Jarrow.
Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow, maa hinnies, loup oot !

Aa yence wis at London, an' hard a chop shoot,
"Yor tickets !"- Aw "Howdon for Jarrow" caaled oot ;
He leuked see teun back that, ses Aa to me marrow¹,
"Here's a chep, mun, that dissent knaa Howdon for Jarrow !"
Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow, man hinnies, loup oot !

Thor's Jack Scott, the puddler (just hear what a caalker),  [Note 538.2]
Uphads that there surely is nee place like Walker;
But Aa've elways thout, for'ts the place Aa hev grow'd in,
Yen may range thro' the world, but thor's nee place like Howdon.
Howdon for Jarrow, Howdon for Jarrow,
Howdon for Jarrow maa hinnies, loup oot !
