​Coorie Doon

This song is by Matt McGinn.

Coorie doon, coorie doon, coorie doon, my darling
Coorie doon the day
Coorie doon, coorie doon, coorie doon, my darling
Coorie doon the day

Lie down, my dear, and in your ear
To help you close your eye
I'll sing a song, a slumber song
A miner's lullaby

Your daddy's doon the mine, my darling
Doon in the curbly main
Your daddy's howkin' coal, my darling
For his ain wee wean

There's darkness doon the mine my darling
Darkness, dust and damp
But we must have oor heat, oor light
Oor fire and our lamp

Your daddy coories doon, my darling
Doon in a three foot seam
So you can coorie doon my darling
Coorie doon and dream
