GUEST,Santa Origins: The Sailor's Way / Across the Line (33) RE: Lyr Add: The Sailor's Way / Across the Line 19 Jul 05

The version I'm most familiar with, based on the C Fox Smith poem, speaks of "across the roads to Newcastle" which makes no sense in the song's context of up and down the west coast of the Americas, but does in an Antipodean version. But that phrase doesn't appear in the NZ variants. Any comments? Is this evidence of a missing intermediate version or just Miss Smith slipping a little?
