Thread Name: Lyr Req: Game as Ned Kelly
Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: THE BOLD KELLY GANG
Hmmm...

The actual words might have helped.

The details given by Ron Edwards, in his Australian Folk Song Index:
THE BOLD KELLY GANG
(Tune; Bould Sojer Boy)

First published 1879 in The Kelly Gang, Outlaws of the Wombat Ranges by G. Wilson Hall, Mansfield, Vic, with authorship given as Anon. As the song is a parody of THE BOLD SOLDIER BOY it is most likely that its original title was THE BOLD KELLY GANG.
Reprinted Old Bush Songs (Stewart & Keesing) 46 1957 titled THE KELLY GANG and with the same title in *Bushwhacker Broadsides 9 1954; *Songs from the Kelly Country 2 1955; *A Quartpot of
Song 8 1966 and *The Overlander Songbook 28 1969 titled THE BOLD KELLY GANG and the same in A Collection of Australian Folk Songs 93 1967; *The Big Book of Australian Folk Song 34 1976;

THE BOLD KELLY GANG
Oh, there's not a dodge worth knowing,
Or showing, that's going,
But you'll learn (this isn't blowing)
From the Bold Kelly Gang.
We have mates where e'er we go,
That somehow let us know,
The approach of every foe,
To the Bold Kelly Gang.
There's not a peeler riding,
Wombat ranges, hill or siding,
But would rather be for hiding,
Though he'd like to see us hang.
We thin their ranks, we rob their banks,
And say no thanks for what we do,
Oh the terror of the Camp,
Is the Bold Kelly Gang.
Then if you want a spree,
Come with me and you'll see,
How grand it is to be,
In the Bold Kelly Gang.
