Kate Rusby – Big Brave Bill Lyrics

KATE RUSBY
Big Brave Bill Lyrics

Young Jamie Clarke was in Cannon Hall Park
Messing about with a laugh and a lark
When all down the valley the rain forced the flood
Young Jamie was a goner neck deep in the mud
But here’s Bill, Bill with a rescuing plan
And it’s Bill, Bill and he saved the young man

Big Brave Bill, from Barnsley he came
Big Brave Bill, from the mine
Big Brave Bill, we’ll remember his name
The hero who drinks Yorkshire Tea all the time

Thomas B Grindle worked in Carlton Main
Proud as can be of his part in the chain
But oh woe betide on this terrible day
When a prop in the shaft underground it gave way
But here’s Bill, Bill with his hero strength eyes
And he’s burned deep and now Tom sees blue skies

Big Brave Bill, from Barnsley he came
Big Brave Bill, from the mine
Big Brave Bill, we’ll remember his name
The hero who drinks Yorkshire Tea all the time

Old Mrs Dobbins from down the Dearneside
Went to Majorca to take the seaside
Was served a cup of warm water, tea bag on the side
UHT milk, oh she broke down and cried
But here’s Bill, Bill he’s with kettle and proud
We love Bill, Bill came the cheers from the crowd

Big Brave Bill, from Barnsley he came
Big Brave Bill, from the mine
Big Brave Bill, we’ll remember his name
The hero who drinks Yorkshire Tea all the time

Big Brave Bill, from Barnsley he came
Big Brave Bill, from the mine
Big Brave Bill, we’ll remember his name
The hero who drinks Yorkshire Tea all the time
The hero who thinks Yorkshire
The hero who loves Yorkshire
The hero who drinks Yorkshire Tea all the time
