This is a difficult one to transcribe. Maybe somebody else can fill in my gaps. I heard this at YouTube:

WALLS
As sung by Robbie Ellis

1. The wall that climbs the ... teeth of the wind
Stands easy on the green valley floor,
And it serves to remind us what skilled men can do
... lifetimes before.

2. With side stones ... holes, fillings and ...
Cap stones shedding all the rain,
Abstract and patterned, purpose and ...
Held in the stones that remain.

CHORUS: Stone upon stone, weathered and blown,
Standing; will you ever fall?
Stone upon stone, the times that you've known,
You'll see out the lives of us all

3. Sandstone and limestone, cobble and slate,
Textures that ... from time,
Edging the pathways, trackways and fields,
... all crusted with grime.

4. Provider of shelter from cold wind and snow,
Shade in the heat of July,
Bordering barley crops forest and ...
... where mountain birds .... CHORUS

5. Landscapes tied up with long ribbons of stone
Change as the years rise and fall.
... of patience they just ...
... stone wall. CHORUS
