Henry Kendall 1839-1882 Tune Traditional Spinning Wheel adapted Lobl

Many years ago, when singing in a backyard in Beaumaris (Victoria), a nearby resident knocked on the door and suggested the following marriage of words and tune. His name was Dick Bell. It seemed an appropriate thing to do. I've adapted a verse to be a chorus and made some more minor changes. Bellbirds are a signal of nearby water to thirsty bushwhackers.
