Red Gold

Performed by John Broomhall

Information on Red Cedar was gleaned from a book 'Red Ceder: the Tree of Australia's History' by John Vader.

I have used two phrases from the book in the first verse. The words in the chorus are names of Red Cedar, most were used in Australian East Coast Aboriginal languages, but also included is the early Latin name.
