Song: This is done in Waltz time

  6    4  5   6   6 -6 -5  -4    4   -3 3   5 
There was a wild colonial boy, Jack Duggan was 
 -4  4
his name
6   6   6    7    7     6 -7 -6 -4  5 5  -5
He was born and raised in Ireland, in a house 
  6       -7 -6 6
called Castlemaine
6   6   7   7 6     -7 7  -4   5   -5 6     -7
He was his father's only son, his mother's pride 
 -6  6
and joy

 6    4     5   6   -6 -5   -4   4   -3
And dearly did his parents love the wild 
 3 5 -4   4
colonial boy

At the early age of sixteen years he left his native home
And to Australia's sunny shore, he was inclined to roam
He robbed the rich, he helped the poor, he shot James MacEvoy
A terror to Australia was, the wild colonial boy

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

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

He fired a shot at Kelly, which brought him to the ground
And turning round to Davis, he recieved a fatal wound
A bullet pierced his proud young heart, from the pistol of Fitzroy
And that was how they captured him, the wild colonial boy
