That song takes me back to my childhood.  I don't think I ever attended a church service where this song wasn't sung.  Of course it was a Southern Baptist church so they did a more fast-tempo and shortened version of "How Great Thou Art."  Had to wrap it up and get out of there to beat the lunch crowd at the local restaurant...We weren't waiting in line behind the Methodists!

 

And speaking of good ol' church music...

Didn't load before the phone died last night....

 

Some of them fellas from down south...

 

Many said Lionel Rose's boxing career. Was hindered by his sing .... None of them were world champs though and none of them had a number 1 Hit around the country...

 

So I love this guy's stuff...brilliant writer and singer...

 

And some of the younger ones...

I was listening to John Hiatt last night and realized a major oversight on my part during the state in a song title thing...

There Yorta Yorta people get their own day...and no it's not JUST because of their Victorian location post walk off...this mob are leaders in the fight for recognition...these fellas lead the aboriginal rights movement, the fight to be counted as residents, the right to vote, and just to be heard and to be recognised as equals, they are musos, they are sportsmen, they are politicians, lawyers, activists, composers, some have been knighted....and William Cooper even has a garden named after him at Yad VaShem.... Anyhow... During their time on the mission in NSW, before the walk off, when they crossed the Murray into Victoria, they were visited by the Frisk choir from Tennessee...they heard a hymn, and translated it into their language... And they still sing it today...

The Tennessee connection:

 

 

How it sounds in Yorta Yorta

 

Jimmy Little lead the charge but we heard him earlier this week...after Jimmy we have his neice, who is an operatic soprano and composer...

Deborah Cheetham singing an excert from the opera Pecan Summer that she wrote about The Walk Off..

 

Young Isiah Firebrace with the big arse voice

 

And Briggs...

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
