Mostly right except for the following (If I remember correctly!)

Young Jimmy Dickinson sits at the wheel.

Casting the Iron or rolling the steel.

Well down in the hedgerow Billy Dowson is working.

The blade of his sickle glints in the bright sun.

Well you can't blame the young men for throwing the towel in.

Tis a good song
