Don Meixner Clancy of the Overflow (Banjo Paterson) (30) RE: Clancy of the Overflow 21 Feb 99

Clancy of the Overflow has one of the most lyric verses I've ever read in poem

And the bush has friends to meet him, and their pleasant voices great him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars, And he views the vision splendid, On the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory in the everlasting stars,

(or words to that effect)

I have a recording of some of some "Bowtie Tenor" singing the poem. Its dreadful, Paterson wrote it to be read and spoken aloud.

I have found it on the net fairly quickly, If you like The Banjos poems, try "Lost" or "The Horse Auction"
