"Bringing the Beer to Broome" is a song by Victorian, Peter Lenne.
The lyrics and provenance are in this thread : /mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=13459
I knew it from the singing of the Alice Springs (NT) bush band BLOODWOOD*,
who despite being excellent - and chosen by The Gummint as representatives of the "Face of Australia" for some years (many overseas tours!),
now have barely a presence online and all their recordings are hard to find. Very Sad.
PS *AFAIK, most members are still performing around The Alice.
