Wilcannia's Dougie Young

Wilcannia's Dougie Young was a singer songwriter one can say of him he was a natural poet
Out of his songs he never became wealthy though he was one who was a man of note
A talented Indigenous Australian he was a credit to his tribe and race
As one of the great singer songwriters in life he knew fame far from his home-place
A singing poet though life for him was never easy here is a man we ought to celebrate
He lived his songs and his songs are still living a natural genius beauty he did create
The wandering minstrel of the warmer country his travels took him far from home to entertain elsewhere
And his songs now sung far distant from Wilcannia in pubs and clubs of the bigger World out there
Though long deceased the songs he wrote still living and somewhere in some pub or club tonight
A singer will sing some of the better known songs of the Indigenous man whose soul was full of light
He lived the songs he wrote than him none greater the pride of famous old Wilcannia Town
A credit to his tribe of First Australians and one who deserves far greater renown
It is my pleasure for to sing his praises for his praises surely deserve to be sung
His songs live on as a testament to his greatness Wilcannia's one and only Dougie Young.
