Here's the text that Mark Dowding referred to. The broadside was printed in Newcastle. This song was printed without dialect, as shown, but dialect is implied by rhyming "use" with "workhouse." Another song on the same broadside is written in dialect, using "ye" for "you" and "dinnet gang doon" for "don't go down" etc.

THE OLD MINER SONG
Words, Jim Ellwood. Tune, "Dan Leno."
