Good grief!
That song isn't even known in NZ!
I'm sure he only used the placename Otago because he could rhyme it with all the other lines. Perhaps he should have used Ohio instead.
I don't think he'd ever find Woodbines over here either.
If you want a real NZ song that mentions Otago, Paul Metsers' Farewell to the gold is much better, much closer to reality.
