By A Fire of Gidgee Coals- Explored

By a warm electric heater

In a softly padded chair

In a lounge room brightly lighted

By a glowing chandelier

Since my early days of drovin'

The years have taken toll

But I somehow miss my swag wrap

By a fire of Gidgee coal

Slim Dusty

 

In far Western Queensland's channel country under a roof of stars with the milky way in all its splendour.

Can remember my early years droving with Dad, no gidgee coals though in Far North Queensland and no Nissan just the clink of the horses hobble chains throughout the night...:))

 

The temperature was around the zero degrees but is remarkable with the coals from the fire and the cosy swags how comfortable we were.
