The Cliffs Of Old Tynemouth - Sheet Music Download
By Dr D. R. Leitch 1838
Arranged by C. Warrington.

A very rare example of this old tune.

The Cliffs of Old Tynemouth is a Geordie folk song written in the 19th century by David Ross Lietch.
This song is a ballad, romanticising about one of the tourist sights of the Tyneside area.

This song appears in a small pamphlet or chapbook being Number 2 of a series appearing to consist of only 3,
forming a series of 'Shields' songs. They were published in the 1850s by the Shields Gazette editor, William Brockie.
The songs reflect the towns of Cullercoats, Tynemouth, North Shields and South Shields, small coastal towns on both sides of the Tyne.
All are variously famous for fishwives, press gangs, ships, boats and sailors, and beautiful scenery.
