Old Dan Tucker

Two of my favorite songs on the Wiggles concert DVD that’s stuck in perpetual replay at home are “Six Months in a Leaky Boat” and “Old Dan Tucker.”

The former is a Split Enz song from the early 80s, and quite a catchy one at that. Watch its YouTube video here.

“Old Dan Tucker” turns out to be one of those traditional songs from the old west, for which sheet music has been around for 150 years or so. The funny thing is, Bruce Springsteen has covered it.
