This Australian country song was sent to me by mother many years ago and I took an immediate liking to it. Buffalo Bill is from Sara Storer’s debut studio album called Chasing Buffalo. Storer won the Best New Talent award at the Australian country music awards for Buffalo Bill.
And will the real Buffalo Bill please stand
Holding a beer and a gun in each hand
Those bright blue eyes give away more than he knows
When they sparkle as his story tells of chasin’ buffalo
Sara Storer was born on 6th of October 1973 which makes her my senior by 100 days or so which means I would call her Ma’am and stand-fast when she addressed me. She grew up on a huge cattle farm in Wemen, rural Victoria – Australia and completed her tertiary studies in Melbourne, becoming a teacher. Living in Camooweal, she met a retired water buffalo shooter, Harry Chandler, whose stories inspired her to write, Buffalo Bill, her first song.
Sara has since gone on to do six studio albums, three of which have have reached the top 30 of the ARIA charts. Despite her successful recording career she has never lost her country calling. When in Darwin she married David O’Hare, a cattle buyer, in April 2012 and the couple have four children and live on a farm near Albury.
