Joybell Origin: Happy Land (39) RE: Origin: Happy Land 25 Aug 12

For what It's worth the performer I'm studying sang a song he wrote in 1855 to this tune. It was sung at the Sal De Valentino (The Old Sally)in Melbourne. It was called Unlock the Lands. At the time small farmers, in Victoria Australia, were not allowed to buy into the large farms even with the permission of the land-holder.
Cheers, Joy
