Lyrics

Come all of you Lachlan men and a sorrowful tale I'll tell
Concerning of a bushranger who to misfortune fell
His name it was Ben Hall, and a man of high renown
Who was taken from his homestead and like a dog shot down

For three years he roamed the range, and he showed the traps some fun
One thousand pounds was offered with Gibson and John Dunn
Till parted from his comrades, the outlaw did agree
To give away bushranging and to cross the raging sea

Lyrics continue below...

Ben went to Goobang Creek and that was his own downfall
For riddled like a sieve was valiant Ben Hall
It was early in the morning all on the fifth of May
That the seven police surrounded him as in his sleep he lay

Bill Dungan he was chosen to shoot the outlaw dead
The others fired madly as though they were afraid
Then they bundled up his body and they tied it to his prad
And they dragged him through the
streets of Forbes to show the prize they had
