Hi Bob...I find the musical connection between those 2 melodies occult, to say the least! There are no minors in Doggie, for one thing... On the other hand, my cowboy neighbor loves D. in the Window, and we play it every time we get together, and it does have a fetching cadence.

I am glad to know the derivation of the Aussie tune, however, and who set the words to I can give credit where it's due, as everyone who hears it likes this song, and asks me about it.
