DT Lyrics:





Subject: Eeh By Gum Broon Coo
From: Fiona
Date: 08 Jul 05 - 04:01 PM

Does anyone know the proper title and the rest of the lyrics for this song as I can't find it in the DT.

The lyrics I do know are,

'Jonathan Pratt were a gravely chap and he liked his pint of ale.
That's why his nose was always red and his cheeks was always pale,
And if tha stops him on the street to ask the time of day,
In drunken tones as he raised his hat, this is what he'd say:

Eeh by gum broon coo, eeh by gum broon coo,
Cos me hands are like stone, me feet are like lead,
Ah hanna bin warm sin Ah left me bed,
Ah skips right up t'fire, as near as Ah'm allowed.
An Ah might git gradley warm at last,
Eeh by gum broon coo.'

I know there's another verse (at least about a parson stopping him but we can't remember them.

Many thanks,
Fiona

(don't forget the accent)
EEE BY GUM

CHORUS: Eee by gum but I'm cowd, eee by gum but I'm cowd
Mi hands are like stone, mi feets like lead,
I 'ave n' bin a warm sin' I left mi bed,
I gets reet up t' fire, as near as I'm allowed,
That I might get gradely warm at last, ee by gum but I'm cowd.

Old Jonathan Pratt were a gradely chap, an' 'e liked a pint of ale
That's why 'is nose were allus red but 'is cheeks were allus pale
An' if thou stopped 'im on the street for to pass the time of day
In drunken tones as 'e raised 'is 'at; this is what 'e'd say

Oh a glass at night were 'is great delight, for it warmed 'im up y' know
Where often over over t' danger line t'owd beggar used to go
The parson said "My man, you're on your downward way"
But Jonathon said with 'is ususal charm " It's warm down there they say"

Then Jonathon finally met his match with a yard of ale they say
So we laid 'im out with a jug of stout for t' warm 'im on 'is way
The devil welcomed him and showed him all his charms
But Jonathon said "If this is hell, it's noan so bloody warm"

I requested these lyrics for a friend(who has since died)((Haira Mai Ian))about 5years ago when I first discovered Mudcat,and found out it was recorded by Bernard Wrigley when he was a member of Five Penny Piece

You're welcome Fiona BTW I think what you heard i.e Eeh By Gum Brown Cow is fantastic and could be the first line of a whole new song

I can see now the chord spacing has shrunk compared to the words because the font has changed after pasting. But you can easily adjust that by copy/paste into a WORD doc and a odd shuffle to t' right will se' thee reet.
