My thanks to all of you mates who posted these videos.. I am an "old fart" who is a fan of Slim Dusty and the American C&W artists of his era.

The Greatest hits album only covers a small amout of the great "Truckie" Hits we had up here. I always said the the song "Give me 40 acres" was my wife's theme song when we ran team together.
