Subject: RE: LYR REQ: Diamontina Drover
G'day,
That's my understanding too about the origins of The Diamantina Drover. That's the only Redgum song I sing, so I can't help with other lyrics. Songs like 'I was only 19' are important for the same reason as 'The Band Played Waltzing Matilda' and I find them both hard to listen to.

Cheers,
Alan
