R.M. Williams - A Man Who Had Tried.

Not long after the passing of Slim we would lose another great Australian in R.M. Williams on the 5th November 2003. Chris and I had the opportunity to meet Reg one night whilst performing at the Barcaldine Heritage Centre. We had a chat after the show about bush poetry and his involvement over the years and the one thing that he mentioned was that he would like to be remembered as a man who had tried.

This inspired me to write the above lyrics to a man who had indeed tried and achieved so much in his lifetime. The song was released on “The Bushman & The Balladeer EP/CD in 2004 and also on the “Bard to Balladeer” album in 2006. It was also included in the “Bush Verse and Ballads” album in 2010.
Some days your the pidgeon and other days the statue.
