Home amongst the gum trees!

My friend from Perth ( fifth house on the right ) has just
visited us, and they showed us a video? music thingamy!
on their smart phone?
It was a ditty about a home among the gum trees!
Since hearing it, it seems to have captured my imagination?
And l now wake up singing it in my mind?
Can any of our antipodean correspondents tell me if this
tune has ever rated in aussie pop charts?

Regards Donkeyman!

Is this it Donkeyman. No idea if its been in the Aussie charts, but I think it has been around for quite a number of years. Somebody called Williamson began it, I think. Catchy little tune.

What a great start to the day ciderman!
I seem to remember the tune from years ago in uk, but cant
remember the words, some thing like, off to tipperary in the
morning! So probably an old sea shanty?
But l like your version better!

Sorry Ciderman - the Kiwis can't have that one. It belongs to Billie Connolly.

I think my memory predates Billy as well Aerolor?
Seems to be a lot of plagerism in the Ditty industry don't
there?
However very humerous all of them!

You lot wouldn't know what "Gumboots" were, 'cause you've never had Kauri gum diggers.
