The Ladie Lagoon





Unknown





Non-flash audio for iPhone, iPad etc



Oh where is the woman, the woman I love
The woman that I do adore
She's lying low where the coolibahs grow
By the shade of the Ladie Lagoon.

I once had a sweetheart, so beautiful and fair
And we'd ride 'neath the light of the moon
But now she is dead and I'm all alone

By the shade of the Ladie Lagoon.

Now my song is o'er I bid you farewell
I'm going to my sweetheart soon,
You can bury me there where the wild flowers grow
By the shade of the Ladie Lagoon.



From Ron Edwards Big Book of Australian Folk Songs.

Collected by Ron and Allan Jenkins at Charters Towers from Jack Parveez  on 12 October, 1966.

  1. Some very fine pathos here without going over the top.
