DARK SHORES

DARK SHORES
(J.Lowe / Lowe Life Music)

Well, I’ve walked along the shore where the northern wind did roar
The wind blew in me hair and the spray did drench me there
I’ve walked the coaly sand, the black and coaly strand
On the dark shores of Durham every day
Oh the dark shores of Durham, will they always be this way?

And in every other bay there’s a tower tall and grey
The rock comes down the flight on the pithead day and night
And it’s very strange to me why they dump it in the sea
On the dark shores of Durham every day
Oh the dark shores of Durham, will they always be this way?

I’ve seen many a man on the dole by the water picking coal
And all the folks that could, in the rocks collecting wood
And there’s fishermen that stand like statues on the sand
On the dark shores of Durham every day
Oh the dark shores of Durham, will they always be this way?

There I’ve often made me way on a cold and windy day
At the beacon point I stand and I gaze across the strand
And for all the black and grey, still the seagulls play
On the dark shores of Durham every day
Oh the dark shores of Durham, will they always be this way?
