Notes: It is two separate tunes.The 3rd & 4th lines are “The Native” from the original Lancers music. It occurs as part of a medley on the Collins recordings. The naming of the tune is a bit of a mystery. Meredith knew/called it The Arrow Inn. Chris Sullivan thinks the Inn in question was called the ‘Broad Arrow Inn’. The Inn is on local maps of the time as the Harrow Inn. The ruins of the Inn are still there, over the road from the Towrang Stockade.
