From the recording Wild Colonial Boy


There was a wild colonioal boy, Jack Duggan was his name
He was born and raised in Ireland, in a place called Castle Maine
He was his father's only son, his mother's pride and joy
And dearly did his parents love, the Wild Colonial Boy

At the early age of sixteen years, he left his native land
And to Australia's sunny land, he was inclined to roam
He robbed the rich, he helped the poor, he stabbed James McAvoy
A terror to Austailia was the Wild Colonial Boy

One morning on the prarie, Jack Duggan rode along
While listening to a mocking bird, singing a cheerful song
Out jumped three troopers fierce and grim, Kelly, Davis, and Fitzroy
They all set out to capture him, The Wild Colonial Boy

Surrender now Jack Duggan, you see there's three to one
Surrender in the Queen's high name, you are a plundering son
Jack drew two pistols from his side, and glared upon fitzroy
I'll fight but not surrender said the Wild Colonial Boy

He fired a shot a Kelly, which brought him to the ground
He fired point blank at Davis, who fell dead at the sound
But a bullet pierced his brave young heart, from the pistol of Fitrzroy
And that is how they captured him, the Wild Colonial Boy
