Hi Geoff,
The story of the tune is as follows. My husband and I lived in Adelaide in the late 70s. We were returning from a trip back to Ireland with our new son, Seamus. We brought him home to see the grandparents and all the relations. Flying Air India, we had a few days stop over in Bombay where we stayed in the finest hotel, visited all the attractions, shopped and ate the best food. We landed in Melbourne to find that there was an Ansett strike - no internal flights. So we hired a car and headed off for Adelaide. We stopped in Ballarat for something to eat and perhaps find a motel. In the motel I wasn't feeling very well. And baby Seamus needed feeding, etc. Things go worse and then so bad that I went to the local small hospital. There gave me something for the vomiting and diarrahea. But I had a very long uncomportable night. I said that if I survived the "Bombay belly" I would someday write a tune about Ballarat. Next day was Anzac day and we passed lots of small parades on our trip home to Adelaide. A long story of an even longer trip!
