Garry Gillard:

THanks for that link in your post. It contains some very specific historical information, a lot of which I was totally unaware of - like the swagman is identified, there are pictures of the "troopers", the song involved a labor strike, a romance and heartbreak, all good stuff.

There is also the hand written manuscript at the website of the composer's original lyric as well as a transcription of the original melody.

Does anyone know whether or not there is a recording of that original lyric and melody available on the Net?
