And, thinking about it, the song is probably the best way to finish off this little saga. So without further ado, here’s Hughesy’s Bowen Volunteer song. The tune, as previously indicated, is She’ll Be Coming ‘Round The Mountain...
They were going to make a movie in the town
And before too long the word had got around
They’d be filming on location
And Baz’s next creation
Would be bringing crowds of people gathered round.
They’ll be heading into Bowen in their hordes
And heading along Herbert Street towards
The set where Baz created
The movie that is fated
To be mentioned for Academy Awards.
So the call went out for some Bowen volunteers
Some people in retirement and their peers
to distribute information
to the wider population
And the tourists that the film brought into town
