Subject: RE: Info req: Shearer's Lament
We have a Shearer's Lament in the database, but it in not attributed to Henry Lawson, and it doesn't have the words you quote, Jerry. Instead it is by Matt O'Conner, tune by Martyn Wyndham-Read. Check it out.
Bob Bolton, can you sort this out for us?
And while you're at it, I was curious about the Shearing of the Cook's Dog. Do you have those lyrics around?
