牋牋牋?Bright Fine Gold



牋牋牋?Because of the New Zealand gold rush in the 1860s, the Tuapecka River in Otago Province became the richest place in New Zealand.?The results were the same as other hold rushes; mostly misery and poverty.?I think that Phyl Lobl from Victoria, Australia, taught it to me when she came to Maine many years ago.

牋牋牋牋牋?Spend it in the winter or die in the cold

牋牋牋牋牋?One apecka, Tuapecka, bright fine gold.


牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?Bright fine gold, bright fine gold.

牋牋牋牋牋?牋牋牋牋牋?One apecka, Tuapecka, bright fine gold.


牋牋牋牋牋?Some are sons of fortune, and my man came to see

牋牋牋牋牋?But the riches in the river are not for such as he.


牋牋牋牋牋?Two little children lying in bed

牋牋牋牋牋?Both of them hungry, Lord, they can't raise up their heads.


牋牋牋牋牋?I'm weary of Otago, weary of the snow

牋牋牋牋牋?Let my man strike it rich and then we'll go.
