Wild Colonial Boy – Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem - tab by wompton

[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
A 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
A 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
