And for my ancestors (some of them, anyway) before they came to the New World.
If he doesn't rise to the occasion, it's going to be "Tie Me Kangaroo Down".
TAC, you've got a wide open field- Go for it!
A old one from the Dubliners, about being sent to Hairbears part of the world.

Evidently I had a long distance relative that got free passage from London. He was going to be hung so he did not complain. I was contacted by one of his descendants looking up genealogy. I told her dont shake the tree too hard because there are a lot of ancestors hanging.
Song about my ancestors, or inspired by them
"Do we get Waltzing Matilda for Hairbear?"
Great song that gets a lot of those overseas remembering home.
"Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport " was a Rolf Harris(now a convicted rapist and a Pom originally) song.
"I still call Australia home'' by Peter Allen is another great song that gets those of us who've been overseas for a long time thinking about the smell of gum tree leaves, wattle trees and all those things that remind you of God's country.
A lot of AC/DC's music gets us going as well.
For the record- Maine is God’s country.
You've got gumtrees and Australian Wattle trees there?
I don’t know what those are- but we have moose and I don’t need a permit to carry a loaded concealed handgun
Mate we have critters here that are in the Top 10 deadly critters in the world and that's not even including the Whoop Whoop Bird and the Hoop Snake.
But I can eat a moose- and it tastes great- can you eat a spider or a scorpion? Maine has way better tasting deadly animals- hands down
We ain't no Asian nation and why eat crap like that?
We can eat shark as well.
We've got crocs, Kangaroos, deer(6 species), goat, pigs(to a point), rabbits, hares, camel and then there's Barramundi,King Salmon, Mangrove Jack, Tuna etc saltwater wise and freshwater there's Murray Cod, Yellowbelly, Bass, English Perch(introduced) to eat.
Sounds like Vietnam- 100 species of snakes. 98 were venomous. The other 2 eat you whole.
Even though AC/DC call Australia home (although Brian Johnson now lives in Florida), their music knows no borders. Everyone i knew growing up had a copy of "Back in Black" or "AC/DC Live," or both. To paraphrase Wayne's World: "you were issued it, it came in the mail with samples of Tide."
Point well made- but how many one eyed eye patch wearing country singers come from Australia. We have one that came from Maine
If you ever get the chance to see Lyle Lovett and his Large Band do not pass up the opportunity.
As far as North Dakota bands, not much reference material on youtube (aside from Bobby Vee) but the metal bands all have a sound that i can only describe as cold. As in they sound like they were recorded outside when it was 20 below.
None that I'm aware of but then again I don't like Country or Western either so the point is moot.
Well then- it seems we’ve come to a draw. In all honestly- I want to visit Australia and New Zealand some day. I just don’t want to get near a cassowary
To get anywhere near a Cassowary you'll either have to see it in a zoo or get into the thick tropicalscrub up in the top part Of North Queensland
