    "Good Morning Kids" album review by Electric Kids Music
    Well if music is supposed to make you feel good, this album pushes all the right buttons. In Woody’s World the listener is taken on a musical adventure, delivered through some delightful songs of genuine authenticity and real emotion. The artist is very much a storyteller at heart, and despite sharing a Christian name with one of the most famous folk singers of all time; there is an earnest originality about the music. His ability to tell a story and describe the setting with such veracity enables the listener to feel a real sense of connection. This musical adventure unfolds like a fairy tale, where everybody is invited, and can equally contribute towards this utopian world, that if it did exist I for one would love to live there.

about

In 2009 I took my class to Deb and Padge’s for five days of horse-riding on the banks of the Murray River.
We had a fantastic time and when I came home I just had to write an Australian bush ballad to remember the camp and Padge’s cry of ‘Whacko Bluey’, which echoed through the trees.

lyrics

Well we loaded up the trailer and we said goodbye to school,
Crossed the Great Divide with the engine running cool.
We cruised on up the Melba Highway,
Towards Deb and Padge’s, we had come to stay.

Well Padge was there to greet us with his cheeky sense of fun,
Some say he’s like Ned Kelly or Clancy on the run.
Debbie right beside him, well she’s as sweet as snow,
Padgy is the boss, but Debbie runs the show.

Whacko Bluey, echoes through the trees,
Whacko Bluey brings me to my knees.
And you can bet a dollar or anything you please,
That I’ll remember fondly times like these.

Well we saddled up the horses and we rode off down the track,
Frosty is a goer and Snip stays down the back.
Wellie hangs with Juke and boy can Jimmy fly,
And Monty needs reminding to behave when he’s outside!

Well Liam copped a “Padgeful” and Joey got a fright,
And Beck was riding sideways, but she held on really tight.
Some were jumping tree stumps along the Murray’s side,
“How good is this?” said Padgy, “You bushrangers can ride!”

Chorus

Well later in the evening when we set those horses free,
The kids were telling stories while I had my cuppa tea.
Then Deb and Padge joined us around the fire bright,
With guitars and fiddles blazing we played into the night.

And if this story’s worth a telling there’s one more thing to say,
What I learned from Deb and Padgy still lives in me today.
You won’t get it from a movie or see it on TV,
But a stay with these kind folk will set your spirit free.

Chorus
