SNOWY RIVER MICRO-STORY
No way I wanted to be a legend -
Something I would never have planned ,
I had heard the old bloke was in trouble
So came down to lend him a hand.
My horse was a mean stubborn devil,
Hard to keep his mind on the job,
Sheer mad-headed chance that when he bolted
We turned up in front of the mob !
Those brumbies were so worn out and tuckered
They gave in without any fight ,
Truant colt trotting meekly behind them
Was back in his stable that night !
this is where it all began -
‘The Banjo’s ‘Snowy River Man’. !
