    Jarrow Song
    Album: Between Today And Yesterday. Posted by hollyh



    My name is Geordie McIntyre
    And the Bairns don't even have a fire
    So the wife says Geordie go to London Town
    And if they don't give us half a chance
    Don't even give us a second glance
    Then Geordie with my blessings burn them down

    Come on follow the Geordie boys
    They'll fill your heart with joy
    They're marching for their freedom now
    Come on follow the Jarrow lads
    They'll make your heart feel glad
    They're singing now yes now is the hour

    My name is little Billy White
    And I know what's wrong and I know what's right
    And the wife says Geordie go to London Town
    And if they don't give us a couple of bob
    Won't even give you a decent job
    Then Geordie with my blessings burn them down

    Come on follow the Geordie boys
    They'll fill your heart with joy
    They're marching for their freedom now
    Come on follow the Jarrow lads
    The joy'll make your heart feel glad
    They're singing now, yes now is the hour

    Well I can hear them and I can feel them
    And it's as just as if they were here today
    I can see them I can feel them
    And I'm thinking nothing's changed much today

    Not all came here to stay their way and die
    But they would come and hit you in the eye
    Now's the time to realize that time goes on
    Nothing changes, changes, changes

    Now I can feel them, I can see them
    And it's as just as if they were here today
    I can feel them and I need them
    And I'm thinking nothing's changed much today

    Not all that people stay their way and die
    But they would come and hit you in the eye
    Now's the time to realize that time goes on
    And nothing changes, changes, changes

    My name is little Alan Price
    I tried to be nice all of my life
    But I'm afraid that up to date it doesn't work
    Because when you lay some money down
    The people try to put you down
    Now where do I stand either side or not

    Come on follow this Geordie boy
    He'll try and fill your heart with joy
    We're marching for our freedom now
    Come on follow this Jarrow lad
    He'll try and make your heart feel glad
    We're saying it now yes now is the hour

    (No 4 in the UK chart in June 1974)

    Jarrow Song 86
    7" single -86 version - Posted by Jean

    My name is Geordie McIntyre
    And the Bairns don't even have a fire
    So the wife says Geordie go to London Town
    And if they won't give us half a chance
    Won't even give us a second glance
    Then Geordie with my blessings burn them down

    Come on follow the Geordie boys

    We're singing now yes now is the hour

    Well I can hear them and I can see them
    And it's as just as if they were here today
    I can see them I can feel them
    And I'm thinking nothing's changed much today

    Not all came here to fade away and die
    But they would come and hit you in the eye
    Now's the time to realize that time may go on
    But it never changes, changes, changes

    My name is Mr Everyman
    And every man must have a plan
    To live a life thatÂ’s free to some degree
    But if I'm stopped from being me
    By some such stupid economy
    I'd rather fight to save my family

    Come on follow this Geordie boy
    He'll try and fill your heart with joy
    We're marching for our freedom now
    Come on follow this Jarrow lad
    He'll try and make your heart feel glad
    We're saying it now yes now is the hour

    Just For You
    Album: The Best Of Alan Price. Posted by Jean

    Just for you I'll take whatever life can give
    Just for you, I'll pour the ink right out my nib
    I can do all the things you've ever wanted to do
    Every single moment I think about you
    For you, I'll do it all just for you

    Just for you, I'll take the rough and take the smooth
    Just for you, I'll try to do my best to prove
    I can do all the things you've ever wanted to do
    What's more baby, everything's times two
    For you, I'll do it all just for you

    Just for me, you're all I ever dreamed you'd be
    Just for you, I'll reach and shake the money tree
    I will do all the things you've ever wanted to do
    What's more baby, everything's times two
    For you, I'll do it all just for you
    Just for you, I'll do it all just for you
    Just for you, I'll do it all just for you

    Justice
    Album: O Lucky Man. Posted by hollyh


    We all want justice but you got to have the money to buy it
    You'd have to be a fool to close your eyes and deny it
    There's a lot of poor people who are walking the streets of my town
    Too blind to see that justice is used to do them right down

    All through life from beginning to end
    You pay your monthly installments
    Next to health is wealth
    And only wealth will buy you justice

    There'll always be a fool who insists on taking his chances
    And that is the man who believes in true love romances
    He will trust and rely on the goodness of human nature
    Now a judge will tell you that's a pathetic creature

    All through life from beginning to end
    You pay your monthly installments
    Next to health is wealth
    And only wealth will buy you justice

    Money, justice
    Money and it just is
    Money, justice

    Just Once In My Life
    By Gerry Goffin & Carole King
    Album: The Price To Play. Posted by hollyh

    There's a lot of things I want
    A lot of things that I'd like to be
    But girl I don't foresee
    A rags to riches story for me
    I've given up on schemes
    I've given up so many dreams
    Don't ask me to give on you
    And baby, baby

    Once in my life let me get what I want, girl,
    Don't let me down
    Just once in my life let me hold on to one good thing I've found
    Don't let me down
    Baby say that you'll be staying

    I couldn't face the day
    If you weren't here by my side
    If you ran away
    I'd be left without any pride
    I've given up on schemes
    'Cos all of them fell through
    I've given up so many dreams
    Don't ask me to give up on you
    And baby, baby

    Once in my life let me get what I want, girl,
    Don't let me down
    Just once in my life let me hold on to one good thing I've found
    Don't let me down
    Baby say that you'll be staying

    That gold pot, girl
    Ain't so easy to find
    But if you stand by me
    I'll give you peace of mind
    I'll work hard every day
    If you'll just do this one thing for me

    Just once in my life let me get what I want, girl,
    Don't let me down
    Just once in my life let me hold on to one good thing I've found
    Don't let me down
    Baby say that you'll be staying
