Albert house genesis

This tune was written by Dave Richardson, of Boys of the Lough. It is of interest particularly to Aussie musos as it was inspired by and melodically based on, through the Boys’ early trips to Australia, the unofficial Australian anthem Waltzing Matilda.

Although Albert House is actually in Durham (the UK one that is).

This (new) version is how I learnt it after Boys of the Lough many years ago.
