words: Ed Pickford Music: Ah You My Hinney Bird


There’s Hartlepool & Horden

Ah you me hinney bird

And Dalton Dale & Dawdon

Ah you Ah

They’re all on the coastal way

Ah you me hinney bird

Hartlepool to Seaham Bay

Ah you are


There’s Blackhall Rocks where Carter chanced

Ah you me hinney bird

And Easington where Billy danced

Ah you ah

There’s Crimdon Dene & Hawthorn Dene

Ah you me hinney bird

One clear days Whitby can be seen

Ah you ah


There’s oak trees & ash trees

Ah you me hinney bird

And wild-flowers waving in the breeze

Ah you ah

There’s roe deer and foxes too

Ah you me hinney bird

And fungi on the dying yew

Ah you are


There’s meadows on the limestone

Ah you me hinney bird

And morning dew like rhinestone

Ah you ah

There’s cowslips and meadow wheat

Ah you me hinney bird

And grass that sings beneath your feet

Ah you ah



Oh Hartlepool to Seaham Bay

Ah you me hinney bird

Is Durham’s bonnie coastal way

Ah you are
