Note: Gundagai Groove arr. by Graham Lloyd. Based on a traditional Australian tune.
Gundagai is a renowned town 390kms south of Sydney. In the alpine region of the Snowy Mountains, the statue of the Dog on the Tuckerbox is just outside of town, but that's a whole other story! Nice that Mary adds her touch of Australia!
