Thread Name: Lyr Add: Nobody's Moggy Now (Eric Bogle)^^^
Subject: RE: 'Nobody's Moggy Now' - Bogle^^^
Thanks, Gerry. I've only heard Eric sing it (Do You Know Any Bob Dylan) "live" and wondered if he'd ever thought of recording it; it was always most entertaining. I've only ever heard him sing "The Little Ice Queen" once, at the 1974 (Brisbane) National Folk Festival main concert; he was given the gig partly because he'd won second place in that year's Songwriting contest with "And the band played Waltzing Matilda", which he also sang as part of his bracket.

Ironically, nobody seems to remember who got first place that year or what the winning song was; the second placer was the one everyone has remembered, even if the words and tune have undergone subsequent modifications.

Cheers, Rowan
