Stats for this track
I first heard an interesting condensed version of this song from a short film by the talented Robert Morgan called 'The Cat With Hands'.
Before you go eugoogle-lizing it and getting on YouTube, be warned, the film is disturbing. (Now you're all going to go have a look!)
I wanted to do a creepy, Faerytale version of it to include in a cover playlist, but when I found the original, I thought better of it. It is a sweet song and felt I should try to sing it that way. This cover is the first verse and chorus only.
I found the lyrics from the National Library of Australia: nla.gov.au/nla.mus-an6065735
Please enjoy this song written around 1897(according to the bottom of the music sheet) by Will Godwin and Leo Dryden, 'The Miner's Dream Of Home'!
