Description: The popular bushranging ballad about someone with the initials JD : Jack Donahue, Jack Doolan, Jack Duggan, etc. Since singing songs about Donahue was banned for a time in the colony of New South Wales, I think this ballad was originally about Donahue, and perhaps went through later changes to include such persons as Judge MacEvoy.

“ When he sentenced Kelly to death by hanging, Barry uttered the customary words "May God have mercy on your soul". According to the transcripts, Kelly replied "I will go a little further than that, and say I will see you there when I go". On 23 November 1880, only twelve days after Kelly's execution, Sir Redmond Barry died from what the doctors described as 'congestion of the lungs and a carbuncle in the neck'.” (Wikipedia)
