Subject: RE: DTStudy: Bold Jack Donohue
Bold Jack Donahoe (2) in the DT shares some verses with the version reproduced in "Folk Songs of Australia," Meredith and Anderson, but has a chorus.
Bob Bolton is rounding up the versions, so no point is posting one.
It does have an inserted chorus;

Now come along my hearties, we'll roam the mountainside,
Together we will plunder and together we will die,
We'll wander o'er the valleys and we'll gallop o'er the plains,
For we scorn to live in slavery, bound down in iron chains.

Is this a floater? Lookslike it could fit in "Bold Ben Hall," etc.
