Subject: Geordies help!heres the tender comin'
Does anyone know the words and background to a song- which I think I heard the Keelers or another tyneside group sing. Its got a lot of 'Geordie language' in it and I'm not even sure if i've even got the title right, but liked the sound of it when I heard it a long while ago. I think it's called Here's the Tender comin'

Got a feeling it's got a coal connection, but not really sure.
From what I remember some of the song goes like this.

Here's the tender comin, off the (Keel) spar
Here's the tender comin .............
Oh dear Hinny, what shall we (protect?)

Well this could be a tricky one- from my lack of information,I might have to wait till I see one of the keelers to ask them.
Hope someone knows it, or has heard of it
