I'd love to know the rest of the lyrics if anyone knows this song!

Gypsy Boys

The times down here they're the hardest life
It takes them a ______________
And the promises made by the men in grey, they seem to be delivered
Deaken and me we were marking time in the ranks of the unemployed
When they hired us on for a week or so,to work with the gypsy boys

well the factory closed down yesterday, the textiles turned to ---
Say what you will, but down this way, one goes the other follows
So it's up your rigors, up your rigors go
Haul your chains around the doors
Cos they hired us on for a week or so, to work with the gypsy boys


Well the lights come up and the crowd goes home

And we're paid our wages and the loadin's ore
We're gone to another town
And from Pennysylvania in the great north west
From Champagne, Illinois,
Well they've hired us on for a week or so, to work with the gypsy boys,oh

For they're calling the towns, tipping ore ashore
All lights and fire and noise
And they've hired us on for a week or so, to work with the gypsy boys
