GUEST,Gerry Unidentified Australian song-Mustering Song (13) RE: Unidentified Australian song-Mustering Song 16 May 20

It's in Ron Edwards, Great Australian Folk Songs, as Mustering Song 2, with the following notes:

Another mustering song with the same tune, but a different story, occurs twice in the Hurd collection under different titles. The second of these versions called Ole Massa has a printed note on it "Supplied by W.M.D. Nive Downs" who, according to a pen note on the cutting, was W. M. Dalgeish.   
The first version is the better of the two, and I have used it here.

It's also in David Mulhallen, Songs and Stories of Australia, as Mustering Song.
