Ring of Iron (Graham MIles) Cho: It's all around the town All around the town It's all around the town This hard ring of iron. There's smoke up in the sky Smoke up in the sky There's smoke that's black and chimney stacks As far as the eye can see There's shipyards to the north Chemicals to the south Factories, stills and rolling mills Right down to the river's mouth. But there's fields and pastures green Fields and pastures green There's fields and pastures green Outside this ring of iron So it's out of town I'm bound Out of town I'm bound It's out of town I'm bound And I'll break this ring of iron.
