Thread Name: Lyr Req: Outside Track (Henry Lawson)
Subject: RE: Outside Track - Henry Lawson
I'm still looking forward to singing "Outside Track" when I get back to Sydney in late November. Takes great courage to sing it back to the folks I learned it from, but I really fell in love with the song, and it's now part of Roll & Go's regular concert set and will probably be recorded on our next CD.
I think I mentioned up above, or maybe on a related thread, that I found the biography THE REAL HENRY LAWSON a satisfying overview of his complex life. It's good to know more about where the songs/poems come from, even if the story doesn't have an especially happy ending.
