The Cliffs of Old Tynemouth
Last updated: 22.01.22
The Cliffs of Old Tynemouth is very sentimental Geordie song written by in 1843 David Ross Lietch to the Irish tune of The Meeting of the Waters that was probably performed by that old time musical performer Charles Ernest Catcheside-Warrington who also published the song in his Tyneside Songs Volume 1.
The singer recalls childhood, passed friends and sweethearts and in the last verse declares that The cliffs of old Tynemouth are ever for me.
The Cliffs of Old Tynemouth was also published in A Choice Collection of Tyneside Songs (1863). This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
