We are truly blessed... we have such popular numbers as that world-wide chart buster; By the Dog Dosing Strip at Dunsandel (lets give it an 8... ruff words but you can dance to it!) And that ever popular Bristol Stomp by the Dovells from 1961!!
Kids in Bristol are sharp as a pistol when they do the Bristol Stomp! Really somethin when they join in jumpin when they do the Bristol Stomp!

And Orlok hasn't even clocked in yet, but he might well get shut out by Anh with her Hotel California!

Five Miles from Gundagai (the polite version is that the dog sat on the tuckerbox, but it actually did something much worse in the food container!)
The Streets of Forbes
Cockies of Bungaree

and then there's:

The Marseillaise

Is "Five Miles from Gundagai" different from "The Road to Gundagai?" I'd hate to not give credit where it's due, but need to be careful about doubles.

And we need a ruling on Issybird's "Turkey in the Straw." I think that if we can allow Orlok's "Eve of Distruction" we should permit "Turkey in the Straw" however bad the pun...

And no one has even mentioned the wonderful oldie by Les Paul and Mary Ford! Or the song recorded in 1954 by Kaye Ballard, or the 1958 pop song by English singer Laurie London. Come on, folks. I'm waiting....

Five Miles from Gundagai

I'm used to punchin' bullock teams across the hills and plains.
I've teamed outback for forty years through bleedin' hail and rain.
I've lived a lot of troubles down, without a bloomin' lie,
But I can't forget what happened just five miles from Gundagai.

'Twas getting dark, the team got bored, the axle snapped in two.
I lost me matches and me pipe, so what was I to do?
The rain it was coming on, and hungry too was I,
And me dog shat in me tucker-box five miles from Gundagai.

Some blokes I know have stacks of luck, no matter where they fall,
But there was I, Lord love a duck, no bloody luck at all.
I couldn't heat a pot of tea or keep me trousers dry,
And me dog shat in me tucker-box five miles from Gundagai.

Now, I can forgive the bleedin' team, I can forgive the rain.
I can forgive the damp and cold and go through it again.
I can forgive the rotten luck, but 'ang me till I die,
I can't forgive that bloody dog, five miles from Gundagai.

This is different from "The Road to Gundagai", which I shall have to post separately.

There's a scene that lingers in my memory –
Of an old bush home and friends I long to see –
That's why I am yearning
Just to be returning
Along the road to Gundagai –

There's a track winding back
To an old-fashioned shack
Along the road to Gundagai –
Where the blue gums are growing
And the Murrumbidgee's flowing
Beneath that sunny sky –
Where my daddy and mother
Are waiting for me
And the pals of my childhood
Once more I will see.
Then no more will I roam,
When I'm heading right for home
Along the road to Gundagai.

When I get back there I'll be a kid again –
Oh! I'll never have a thought of grief or pain –
Once more I'll be playing
Where the gums are swaying
Along the road to Gundagai –

I vote that Issy's "Turkey in the Straw" should get points - I love it!
