The Clancy Brothers – Wild Colonial Boy
VERSE 1:
C F G7 C
There was a wild colonial boy, Jack Duggan was his name
G G7 C
He was born and raised in Ireland, in a place called Castlemaine
G G7 C
He was his father's only son, his mother's pride and joy
F G G7 C
And dearly did his parents love the wild colonial boy

VERSE 2:
C F G7 C
At the early age of sixteen years he left his native home
G G7 C
And to Australia's sunny shore, he was inclined to roam
G G7 C
He robbed the rich, he helped the poor, he shot James MacEvoy
F G G7 C
А terror to Australia was the wild colonial boy

VERSE 3:
C F G7 C
One morning on the prairie, as Jack he rode along
G G7 C
A-listening to the mocking bird, a-singing a cheerful song
G G7 C
Up stepped a band of troopers: Kelly, Davis and Fitzroy
F G G7 C
They all set out to capture him, the wild colonial boy

VERSE 4:
C F G7 C
Surrender now, Jack Duggan, for you see we're three to one
G G7 C
Surrender in the King's high name, you are a plundering son
G G7 C
Jack drew two pistols from his belt, he proudly waved them high
F G G7 C
I'll fight, but not surrender, said the wild colonial boy

VERSE 5:
C F G7 C
He fired a shot at Kelly, which brought him to the ground
G G7 C
And turning round to Davis, he received a fatal wound
G G7 C
А bullet pierced his proud young heart, from the pistol of Fitzroy
F G G7 C
And that was how they captured him, the wild colonial boy
