Here's the words. If anyone wants the tune I'll post it.

WHEN THE TEES RAN WARM
(Graeme Miles)

Cold run the waters, waters of the Tees,
On the shore bleak Winter's frost and snow;
And no bird is singing in a firmament of gray,
And the smoke from yonder factory rises slow.
  Chorus:
  And I am yet, and even yet,
  Thinking on the one I still adore.
  The one who said goodbye, but gave no reason why,
  When beneath the Summer sun the Tees ran warm.


Black run the waters, waters of the Tees,
Lapping round the barges by the quay.
The last time I was here my love was at my side,
The very side I thought he'd always be.                
  Chorus

Slow run the waters, waters of the Tees,
Past the empty wharves and lofty cranes.
It was on this very ground I stole my first warm kiss;
How I wish I could live that time again.
  Chorus

Silent run the waters, waters of the Tees,
Carrying the big ships to the sea.
Constantly my mind dwells on the one I love,
And I wonder if he ever thinks on me.
  Chorus
  And I am yet.
