Thread Name: Lyr Req: Outside Track (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Outside Track - Henry Lawson
Paterson, not Patterson, also known as Banjo Paterson. I'm not sure whether that means he played the banjo. I never thought about that until now because we are at Mudcat and everything comes back to music here one way or another.

(Uh-oh, not another thing for me to look up on the 'Net! I've got enough of them already.)

Lawson can get a bit sentimental sometimes. I prefer Paterson but I can appreciate both.
