Underneath The Arches

Album: The Flanagan And Allen Story (1927)
  • Underneath the arches
    We dream our dreams away
    Underneath the arches
    On cobblestones we lay
    Every night you'll find us
    Tired out and worn
    Happy when the daylight comes creeping
    Heralding the dawn

    Sleeping when it's raining
    And sleeping when it's fine
    Trains rattling by above
    Pavement is a pillow
    No matter where we stray
    Underneath the arches
    We dream our dreams away

    Sleeping when it's raining
    And sleeping when it's fine
    Trains rattling by above
    Pavement is a pillow
    No matter where we stray
    Underneath the arches
    We dream our dreams awayWriter/s: JOSEPH MCCARTHY JR., BUD FLANAGAN, REG CONNELLY

  • Peter from Englaish CanalsI believe the arches concerned were, in fact, the Friargate Bridge over Ashbourne Road in Derby. Built by Andrew Handyside & Co, a local firm the bridge was transferred to Derby Council when the railway line was closed on the understanding that it would be maintained in perpetuity. It is now in a state of disrepair and a petition demanding the council honour their commitment has been started
