Lazy Harry's
Last updated: 24.01.17

"Lazy Harry's" is a fine song which can be found in The Bushwackers Australian Song Book. The song is all about a pair of likely lads, shearers to be more exact, with "whips of rhino" ("lots of money" in plain English) setting off on a long tramp to Sydney to spend their hard earned money at the conclusion of the shearing season. After covering some considerable distance, they camp at Lazy Harry's, a rough bush tavern, close to Gundagai. In one week they blued the lot on booze and girls and were therefore compelled to return without having reached Sydney.
