The Queensland Tiger - The Diamantina Drover - Internet Download
A late starter, the Queensland Tiger learnt to play piano by just playing folk songs. First song learnt was “Andy’s Gone with Cattle”, followed by many others by Henry Lawson. Ballads from the nineteenth century express the hopes, beliefs, and attitudes of people at that time, making an interesting comparison to those of today … some are different … some are the same. They also tell the history of the period.

All songs have videos on Youtube containing the lyrics, so they could be used for teaching.

The Queensland Tiger rarely performs live, and may soon have a CD. Accounts on Youtube and SoundCloud plus a website.

About this track...

This droving ballad was written in the 1980s by the late Hugh McDonald (1954 - 2016) , though the song sounds much older, and has become a classic.

Backing vocals and violin by Jessie Morgan
