"Ring of Iron"
I know of no other songs about Middlesbrough and its surrounding steelworks
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.
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.
