Thread Name: Lyr Req: Diamantina Drover (Hugh McDonald)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Diamontina Drover
Hugh wrote the song during 1977, I think, when he was staying at my brother's place in Rosanna. There was some mirth about the fact that Hugh spent most of the day watching midday tv, usually a mind-numbing experience. But he got a great song out of it. And the Diamantina is wonderful country.
