Durham Town Lyrics

Durham Town - Roger Whittaker

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

And the leaving's gonna get me down

 

Back in nineteen forty four

 

I remember daddy walking out the door

 

Mama told me he was going to war he was leaving

 

Leaving leaving leaving leaving me fade

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

And the leaving's gonna get me down

 

When i was a boy i spent my time

 

Sitting on the banks of the river tyne

 

Watching all the ships going down the line

They were leaving

 

Leaving leaving leaving leaving me

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

And the leaving's gonna get me down

 

The last week mama passed away

 

Good bye son was all she'd say

 

There's no cause for me to stay

So i'm leaving

 

Leaving leaving leaving leaving free

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

And the leaving's gonna get me down

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

I've got to leave old durham town

 

And the leaving's gonna get me down
