Flash Jack from Gundagai
Last updated: 22.04.17

"Flash Jack from Gundagai" is another fine song with a roaring chorus and a joy to sing. It's all about a shearer, Flash Jack, boasting of his prowess with different types of shears, the worst type of sheep and all the various sheep stations the names of which just roll off the tongue. E.g. Burrabogie, Toganmain, Willandra, Colerane etc. etc.
This song was also gleaned from the pages of The Bushwackers Australian Song Book.
