This is an a cappella SATB arrangement of Geordie Ridley's famous song from Tyneside in the north-east of England.

The humorous song is about an eventful bus trip from Balmbra's Music Hall in the English city of Newcastle to the horse racing in nearby Blaydon, situated on the Gateshead side of the River Tyne.

With the rain pouring down throughout the journey, the bus loses a wheel and various injuries are sustained, some requiring hospital attention. When they finally get there, one of the horses has been stolen.

More recently, the song has been adopted by supporters of the local football team, Newcastle United.

    a very nice arrangement. i would have liked to get a XML version as i am a finale user and could convert that into finale then use that to generate a sound version i can listen to and let others listen. i would have liked a TTBB version but this...

    is not available - more's the pity.
