Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Freedom on the Wallaby (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Freedom on the Wallaby -- Meaning
Thank you! I was so sure I could count on Mudcat and all the fine folks who read it and respond and post. My granddaughter and I were listening and trying to make sure we heard the words right. I learned all the things about the shearer's strike, what the rebel flag was -- I really wanted all the words -- and I wanted to know what humpin' bluey meant. I feel so much better now that I do know.
And we will go back to listening to the Makem and Spain Brothers singing the song. I realaly like it!
