Coorie Doon

(Matt McGinn, Heathside Music/Arr. Quigg & McCalman)

'Another great song from Matt McGinn, Coorie Doon tells of the hardships faced by the now extinct mining communities in Scotland. First recorded in 1961 by Robin Hall and Jimmie McGregor.'

Chorus:
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 doon, my dear, and in your ear,
To help you close your eye,
I'll sing a song, a slumber song,
A miner's lullaby.

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.
