For a seriously moving perfomance, including the sometimes-dropped final four lines, I suggest James Fagan's recording with Nancy Kerr.

You'll find it on Fellside CD167, "Between The Dark and Light". Also on Fellside compilation "Men folk" FECS1.

What is it about Australia and melancholy songs? As a nation they come across as cheerful and optimistic, yet they seem to produce some of the finest sad songs you can find [IMHO, of course].
