The Day We Went to the Coast
Last updated: 22.01.22
The Day We Went to the Coast was written by Johnny Handle in 1960. It tells the humorous story of an extended miner's family out on a day-trip to the coast. In the course of this unforgettable day, they get caught a huge downpour, have serious altercations involving the police, and finally when they get back home, they discover that the father was missing. The kids had buried him in the sands before the downpour started! Great stuff indeed and in the finest Geordie!
This song may be found in the Tyneside Maritime Chorus songbook
