REDGUM   - Poor Ned

D                  A          G                 D
Eighteen-hundred & 78 was the year I remeber so well
D                        A               G                  D
they put my father in an early grave and slung my mother in gaol
D                      A            
now I don't know whats right or wrong
         G              D
but they hung Christ on nails
D                A
6 kids at home & 2 still on the breast
     G                     D
they wouldn't even give us bail


( CHORUS:

D                A
Poor Ned, you're better off dead
   G                              D
at least you'll get some peace of mind
D
you're out on the track
A
they're right on your  back
G                          G
boy they're gonna hang you high      )

You know I wrote a letter 'bout Stringy-Bark Creek
so they would understand
that I might be a bushranger
but I'm not a murdering man
I didn't want to shoot Kennedy
or that copper Lonnigan
he alone could have saved his life

CHORUS

You know they took Ned Kelly
& they hung him in the Melbourne gaol
he fought so very bravely
dressed in iron mail
& no man single handed
can hope to break the bars
there's a thousand like Ned Kelly
who'll hoist the flag of stars

we sing...CHORUS
