One of my fav. songs begins

On a lonely selection, away in the West
There lived an old woman who worked without rest.

and the refrain is

And I'll keep the old place til the children come home.

It's obviously an Aussie song, as it refers to "Sundowners" so thot Eric Bogle....but have searched his discography w/o success. Does anybody know who wrote this. I sing it a lot and would like to give composer's name. Thx...
