Subject: RE: Lyr/Chords Req: The Outside Track (Henry Lawson)
Bruce D, I really ought to get the Roderick volumes one of these days. I reckon that for many of Lawson's poems, there's the way Lawson sent it off to the publisher, the way the publisher actually published it, the way later publishers published it in collections of Lawson's work, and the way(s) people sing it, and they may all be different, and who's to say what's authentic or correct? But I still try to avoid readings that are clearly wrong.
