Thread Name: Tune Req: American-Australian Songs
Subject: RE: Tune Req: American-Australian Songs
Eric Bogle wrote a fine one about being on tour in America called "Somewhere in America", but I'm not sure that's what you're looking for. A fair number of Aussie sheep-shearers come over here for our shearing season, which is their off season back home. There's some friction with American workers, as I've heard the Aussies are more desirable to the sheep ranchers because they're faster and more skilled. Don't know if there's any songs about it.
