Help with lyrics

Hello there

Not being a native speaker of English, I frequently have trouble getting the words of a song right.

This is happening again with the following :

For which I’m missing two bits, in verse four :

Oh she rode west but he rode best
Until he came to a ??? valley

and in verse nine :

But tonight I’ll lay on a cold barn floor
With the seven yellow gypsies ??? me-oh

I’d be ever so grateful to anyone who would kindly help.

All the best

In verse four it’s the place name Stradbally (probably the County Laois one) and in verse nine it’s ‘with seven yellow gypsies to annoy me-o’.
