Here is a recording of Margaret Walters,
http://www.margaretwalters.com/, and John Warner singing the song, in the key of A flat.
That key is a bit high for some choirs and singers. Below are resources for an arrangement for the Illawarra Union Singers. I’m suggesting either F for unison singing, or G for part singing. The guitar chords on the lyrics below are in the key of E, and would require a capo. Note also, the chords in the key of G on the sheet music, probably a better solution if the song is sung in G.
