    Lyrics

    Come drive me down to the central station
    I hate to leave my river tyne
    For some damn town that's god-forsaken
    Fare thee well, northumberland
    Although I'll go where the lady takes me
    She'll never tell what's in her hand
    I do not know what fate awaits me
    Fare thee well, northumberland

    My heart beats for my streets and alleys
    Longs to dwell in the borderlands
    The north-east shore and the river valleys
    Fare thee well northumberland
    I may not stay, I'm bound for leaving
    I'm bound to ramble and to roam
    I only say my heart is grieving
    I would not gamble on my coming home

    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll

    So drive me down to the central station
    I hate to leave my river tyne
    For some damn town that's god-forsaken
    Goodbye old friend of mine
    Although I'll go where the lady takes me
    She'll never tell what's in her hand
    I do not know what fate awaits me
    Fare thee well, northumberland

    So roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
    Roll on, geordie boy, roll
