Australian Folksong Medley No. 6 – String Group (Optional Percussion)

​ This Medley includes:

​ 1. The Dying Stockman (3/4 Waltz Tempo): “Wrap me up with my stockwhip and blanket And bury me deep down below. Where the dingoes and crows can't molest me In the shade where the Coolibahs grow.”

​ 2. Jim Jones of Botany Bay (6/8 Adagio in 6) is a traditional Australian folk ballad. The narrator, Jim Jones, is arrested, tried, and sentenced to transportation. En route, his ship is attacked by pirates, but the crew holds them off. Arriving in Australia, Jones vows to escape, join the bushrangers, and get revenge.

​ 3. The Drovers Dream (6/8 Brightly in 2) “One night when traveling sheep, my companions lay asleep There was not a star illuminate the sky. I was dreaming I suppose, for my eyes were partly closed. When a very strange procession passed me by. First there came a kangaroo with a swag of blankets blue. And the dingo ran beside him as his mate. They were traveling mighty fast but they shouted as they passed. We'll have to jog along, it's getting late.”

​ This arrangement is for String Orchestra with optional percussion. There are also versions for Full Orchestra, Concert Band and Brass Band at this website.

​ The MP3 was recorded with NotePerformer. ​ Grade = 3 Duration = 5:35 mins.
