The Wild Colonial Boy

Track 4 of “Greatest Australian Songs Volume 1” DVD.
DVD available at – order at “The Wild Colonial Boy”, is another very early Australian song (also much loved in Ireland) about the bushranger Jack Doolan (or Donoghue or Duggan etc.), who arrives at an early age and defies British rule and takes to the road as our most famous highwayman: “I’ll fight but not surrender”, cried the Wild Colonial Boy!!!” Including numerous famous sketches of stage coach robberies under arms and bushrangers riding furiously away from the mounted troopers in hot pursuit, the track springs to life with exciting sound effects of galloping horses, whip cracks and gunshots!
