Billy Walker – Wild Colonial Boy lyrics
There was a Wild colonial boy Jack Doogan was his name
He was born and bread in Ireland in a place called Castlevain
He was his mother's only son his father's pride and joy
And dearly did his parents love the wild colonial boy.

--- Instrumental ---

At the early age of sixteen years he left his native home
And to Austrailia's sunny shore he was inclined to roam
He roobed the range to help before he stabbed James Mac Evoy
A terror to Austrailia was the wild colonial boy.

--- Instrumental ---

One morning on the prairie wild Jack Doogan rode along
While listening to the mockingbird he sang a cheerful song
Up jumped three troopers armed with gun named Davis and Kelly and Fitzroy
They all set out to capture him the wild colonial boy.

--- Instrumental ---

He fired a shot at Kelly's chest that brought him to the ground
And turning round to Davis he recieved the fatal wound
A bullet piereced his brave young heart from the pistol of Fitzroy
And that was how they captured him the wild colonial boy.

And that was how they captured him the wild colonial boy...
