Hi everyone - new to this so have patience. Not sure if anyone can help but I noticed a few threads about the Hartlepool Monkey so I guess I might get a few hits.

I am originally from Teesside (1970's)(Formally North Yorkshire) and I used to listen mainly to folk music on local radio - Tyne, Tees and Durham. One of my favourite songs was about the River Tees, and sung to the tune Lillie Marlene. I'm not sure but think it could have been sung by The Teesside Fettlers - (waiting on a reply from one of the members) It mentioned Chop Gate(pronounced Yop Yat) and the Gare (not sure if it was the North or South Gare) and many other features along the River, tracing its passage through the industrial towns of Middlesborough, Stockton etc.

If anyone can recall this song please let me know, I'm now a music student/ performer in Australia and I'd like to build a 30 minute show around songs of the North East

Here's the words. They're from one of my old song folders. I've got The Fettlers singing it on Travelling The Tees and if I get time I'll play the LP and compare their version with this.

I'll try and put the tune up later (it's not Lili Marlene, btw).

Mick



TEESSIDE AND YORKSHIRE
(Richard Grainger)

Chorus:
  It's Teesside and Yorkshire that's still in my blood,
  The romance of the nasty fumes, the dales that mean good.
  For my home's in the smoke by that cold, mucky river
  And my ancestors came o'er the wind-bitten heather.


While others are leaving, to find pastures of plenty,
The old concrete roads and the signs of No Entry,
I'm satisfied sitting by our own River Tees,
Out by The Gare where the winds make you freeze.

Then I turn to the South and I see the high hills,
Where the cold open moors and the high rugged fells
Look down over Blakey, The Cross and Ryedale,
And beauty looks down on the heart of Teesdale.

From Dorman's who make the steel, the finest of all,
To Wilton and Billingham you must make a call.
For here's The Transporter and The Newport Bridge too.
And that isn't all we'ver got better than you.

So, from Ayton, Chop Gate, aye, and Kildale and all,
To The 'Boro' and Stockton, to the Tees River call,
Let's lift up our jars and drink a toast to the Tees,
From the gritty old docks to The Gare where you freeze.


Source: One of my song folders, originally from Pete Moore of Eston.

Don't forget this one, either:

So if you're for fine bridges, then on Teesside we've got two,
To show what local engineers and labourers can do.
There's one of them that lifts the road way out of shipping's way
And the other shuttles back and forth a hundred times a day.

If you're interested, I'll see if I can track the rest of the words down

Richard's song, Teesside and Yorkshire as per the words above was rerecorded last year by Richard on his album 'On Heather and Clarty Moor', together with many other songs and tunes concerning the North York Moors. It's a really good album representing many factes of life on the moors.

The "Thornaby Anthem" is another,


There's a little place upon old Britain's map
where I first saw daylight from my mother's lap
you can take New York and Tennessee
There's a little place on the river Tees
and I'm coming back to you sweet Thornaby


I believe it was written in the trenches of WW1.

I've always been amused by one of the verses which includes the lines

Oh the New York girls are pretty
all dressed in fancy clothes
but if you want a pretty girl
just take me down Mandale Road


If you could see Mandale Road these days you would know why I find it funny!

I first heard it in the early seventies sung by Violet Smith, an old Thornaby resident with a voice like a car with a flat battery, in The Collingwood next to Victoria bridge.
The pub was run by Eva and Georgie, two old, retired sisters who tread the boards of the music halls and insisted that anyone who called in for a drink had to either play a tune on the battered old piano or sing a song.
As a 15 year-old I regularly attended on a Friday night as I knew I would get my turn to sing and play my guitar although the price was that I was expected to accompany any of the singers whether I knew the song or not. (usually not)
By the time I was 16 I knew more old music-hall songs and 40's/50's hits than most of my contempories and learned that there was more to music than Bowie and Bolan.

Of course like Eva and Georgie, the Collingwood has long gone and what's left of Mandale Road is a pick-up point for prostitutes but I've got many great memories of that time and Violet's voice stills rings in my ears!
Ouch!

It was part of North Yorkshire when I was born here and these days no one is sure whether to use Cleveland or TeesSide.

Subject: Lyr Add: THE PROCESSION (Graeme Miles)
From: bill\sables
Date: 29 Nov 05 - 04:08 AM

There was also The Duchess of Kent about a Royal visit to Middlesboro, This was around in the 60's.
The Duchess of Kent
The mayor and his click held a meeting, a proposal were put to the board
That a letter be sent to the Duchess of Kent to open a new hospital ward
The alderman had a collection to acquire the mayor's chain out of pawn
And a note was sent round to the heads of the town saying collars and ties must be worn

The flags and the bunting were flying and crowds lined the Middlesbrough streets
And the mayor and his band with their hats in their hand at the station the Duchess would meet
At the station they waited and waited but the Duchess she weren't on the train
Then somebody cried "She's at the dockside she's arrived on the Tees floating crane"

The procession it started at Airsome, past the park and museum as well
Passed Kirkhams fruit stall and the borough town hall and into the Baltic Hotel

Now the beer in the Baltic were heavy, the beer in the Baltic were strong
The Duchess went wild over a pint of brown mild and was singing The Match Factory song
The mayor he had twenty five bitters The Duchess she had twenty nine
Then she said "man I'm starved" so they downed one more half and went into St, Mary's to dine

The community kitchen was crowded There wasn't no room for no more
So the mayor and his group bought their black bread and soup and sat themselves down on the floor
The runner bean soup was delicious and the crab apple melba a dream
The crust was well done to the very last crumb poured thick with evaporated cream

When they all walked out of the kitchen the crowd how it cheered and it yelled
The Duchess was first to go quench her thirst back into the Baltic Hotel
To the diesel the Duchess she staggered and when she had clambered aboard
The mayor he cried stop for he'd quite clean forgotten to mention the hospital ward.

Yes I have that on cassette somewhere, funny I went up to Hartlepool to visit my sister over the weekend and although she lives on the 'Headland' i.e. Old Hartlepool neither of these areas are part of their address and now they're not in any county, used to be Co. Durham then it was was Cleveland (which very few people in Hartlepool thought they should be part of!) It's a unitary authority now so I don't think it's in any county at all but they're still proud of the Monkey hanging episode!

As an exiled Hartlepudlian myself I always address the town as in County Durham.

Does anyone know why West Hartlepool, which is where I was born, is often referred to as 'Bristish' West Hartlepool? I've never been able to find that out

Maybe its a new thread needed.

Cleveland was a really nice area in its own right, encompassing the Cleveland Hills and the villages around - my childhood bedroom window looked out on to Roseberry Topping, and my primary school was a couple of miles away at Marton-in-Cleveland, itself a pretty little village. Now its all just part of the Boro conurbation of course, so the use of the name Cleveland to describe it, though inaccurate, is no longer really seems such a shame as it used to be.

When I left it was still just called the North Riding of Yorkshire.

Brassgirl - You should try to get a hold of the Northumbria Anthology, which contains dozens of Teesside & Tees Valley songs. It's expensive, but worth it. Check out the website:
http://northumbriaanthology.com/

As for the Cleveland-Yorkshire debate, I've known some people get really bent out of shape over this (why I don't know) but it was first named Cleveland by the Angles (Cliff-land) which would have been before the Vikings renamed Eboracum "Jorvik" which was of course glossed to York, and the county was cut away from the Kingdom of Northumbria later still.

I went to school in Darlington (mid 60s) when Teesside first became designated a city, and the kids from that neck of the woods were proud to have their own city. Also to have Stan Anderson lead the Boro into the old First Division. ;o)

Fiddler,
I couldn't disappoint you.
Chop Gate is pronounced exactly as written, by the locals who live there .
Chop Yat is used by all the Townies M'boro, Stockton etc.
Some sort of perverse folk lore has grown up whereby all the Townies believe the locals pronounce it Chop Yat .
Go and have a pint at Chop Gate - and pronounce it Chop Yat and the locals will have a great laugh at your expense.

Terry K , in his mention of Marton-in-Cleveland omitted to mention that , this is also the birthplace of Capt James Cook - the worlds greatest cartographer and seafarer / explorer ( and for our U.S. friends who may find this thread a bit puzzling) the man who started the Americans calling the Brits - Limeys , as 'twas he, who accidently discovered, that eating limes eradicated scurvy in his crew members.

Pete, not being picky but the great Captain Cook was born in Great Ayton (pronounced "Great Ayton" by the locals and "canny Yatton" by the townies in the same perverse way as you rightly point out about Chop Gate!). His family moved to Marton when he was young and just before he was packed off to Staithes as an apprentice shipbuilder.

Some time later, Marton celebrated their favourite inhabitant by building Capt Cook's Memorial School, which is where life started to go all wrong for me.

Fiddler / Andy,
It wasn't my intention ( or Terry k's ) to make you look silly - the subject still causes arguments in pubs and clubs.That's my take on it - so you could still be right!!
I tried to find the thread re that "Do" at Guiseboro ( Gillies spelling) to see if you are at that bash on the 10 th which would be an execellent excuse for a pint.

Terry I'm struggling to accept your Cook scenario - I was sure he was born Marton - then went to school in Great Ayton - ( the tiny village school building still being there ) i.e. not the Friends School which used to be on the Village Green.

Looks like a case for Sherlock !!!

Thanks all who answered, only just got back to it - I'm pretty sure its the one 'that grand old lady the Tees' by the Fettlers I'm looking for - but I need to hear it.

It's not the Teesside & Yorkshire song I'm after or the Thornaby song although I was born in Thornaby.

Doesn't make me feel homesick - I went back in 2000 and only miss the family - although a bit of snow would cool me down at the moment in 30+C temp.

BigPinkLad's link has a nice photo of the said Roseberry Topping, and a mention of a "trip to Coatham in Yorkshire". I made the same trip on the 63 bus to Coatham five days a week and that alone stuffed any chance I had of a decent education!

I'm confused if Brassgirls not looking for Teesside and Yorkshire!

I have got the whole of both Fettlers LPs in MP3 and CDA format but I really shouldn't publish the lot and to the best of my knowledge they are now only relics of a byegone age when we were all young and beautiful (or thought we were).

I'll check out some others tonight.

G'day, folks and ex Tees-siders, the first post was ages ago - I'd forgotten all about it - until my brother emailed me (Rare occasion) and mentioned Chop Yat. I went looking for the words again as he is a lot older than me and should know where they all are and what the old words mean.(But he didn't)


I'd love to get copies of the music sheet or otherwise but being out here in the colonies hardly likely to find them.

I have the lyrics now I have to listen to the old scratchy cd and try and transcribe it - something I'm not real good at!
