Thread Name: Lyr Req: Outside Track (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Outside Track - Henry Lawson
Two of the fine Australian singers, Margaret Walters and John Warner, I met on my recent visit to Oz (5-String Banjo in Oz) do a fine rendition of this song on their CD WHO WAS THERE?, Feathers & Wedge © 1997; their version includes the first verse. Margaret occasionally lurks on Mudcat. Bok, Tricket & Muir also did a rendition similar to Gerry Hallom which leaves out the first verse on their HARBORS OF HOME CD. Hallom provided the fine tune.
Could someone post the original Lawson words so we can better appreciate the "folk-processing" which has been taking place?
