Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door - Tenterfield Saddler (song) - Netflix

“Tenterfield Saddler” is a song written by Peter Allen in 1970. It was released in 1972 as the second single from his second studio album of the same name. “Tenterfield Saddler” tells the moving story of the musician's life, from his much-loved grandfather, George Woolnough, his troubled relationship with his father and moving to New York to marry Liza Minnelli, “a girl with an interesting face”. The lyric “been all 'round the world and lives no special place”, is compared to a lyric of another of his songs, “no matter how far or how wide I roam, I still call Australia home” in “I Still Call Australia Home”.
