"When the Dandenong from Melbourne Sailed. . ."

Well, here it is, four days into the New Year. Don't you think it's time for a song, with words and that sort of thing? Here's Bruce Molsky and his fiddle with "Wreck of the Dandenong."

The very effective chorus is apparently a recent innovation. A more traditional setting of the song,  along with the lyrics, and even newspaper quotes about the wreck, can be found here at An Australian Folk Song A Day.
