Bob Bolton Lyr Req: The Dogs' Party/Dogs' Meeting (37) RE: Lyr Req: The Dogs' Party/Dogs' Meeting 12 Sep 11


G'day GUEST,Jackse,

That's an interesting reworking by Matt McGinn ... but the collected (and a few recollected) versions in Australia date back at least a decade before Matt drifted into the 1960s British "Folk Revival" ... and the (Gulgong, NSW, Australia) version I cited had ... by then ... become linked (in form and refain "Bump, bump, bump" device to the 1950s novelty song "The Thing". However, Gulgong locals remembered ( ... or mis-remembered ...) for collector John Meredith, the song as dating back to Henry Lawson in his days as an occasional ex-local passerby - up to the early 1920s!

Regard(les)s,

Bob
