Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Plastic Paddy
Little Hawk -

Christy came to Sydney 5 years ago & gave a great show & as my friends knew him we ended up in the Green Room for a singing session. It was a wonderful evening. He was supposed to come back in 5 years, so maybe sometime soon?

I have 5 of Eric's CDs & Plastic Paddy isn't included so it must be one one of my tapes. But the words sound right to me (apart from 'wardrobe' & I can't even guess that).

Plastic Paddy is on a tape - copied off 'Mirrors' some years ago, so I don't have details - & the line does sound like "the wardrobe". The line "His singing voice it ranges from a sharp to a flat " has to be heard to be believed.
