Matron Williams knew a version of ‘Three Jolly Lads Are We’, which is a song that appeared in A B Paterson’s 1905 collection of Old Bush Songs. The fact that I also collected a full text of the song from Harry Chaplin, also of Broken Hill, points to widespread popularity of the song in that particular district. The interesting aspect is that both versions differ considerably.
