Maitland Black Boy 
Written and recorded by Bryan Watkins

C G7
In Maitland’s busy High Street all dressed in red and blue
C
The city’s famous black boy is there for all to view
C7 F
He stood there by the roadside a hundred years or so
C G7 C
Reminding passing people of the days of long ago

F C
He’s held the reigns of horses while their owners were away
F C G7
And taken care of sulkies and the local farmer’s dray
C C7 F
Although the horse and sulky days will never come again
C G7 C
He stands with hand extended to take a rider’s rein

G7
He’s watched man’s steady progress through said seeing eyes
C
And seen a little country town into a city rise
C7 F
If only he could speak to us of Maitland’s early life
C G7 C
He’d tell of all the pleasures the troubles and the strife

F C
When drought came on the valley he stood through searing heat
F C G7
His painted shirt and trousers all crumbled round his feet
C C7 F
But when the drought had broken and the good times came in view
C G7 C
A coat of paint and there he stood dressed up as good as new

G7
He shared the people’s heartaches that come with raging flood
C
And stood as water raced on by all stained with yellow mud
C7 F
He’s seen this happen many times throughout these hundred years
C G7 C
And joined the sadden people by shedding rusty tears

G7
I don’t reside in Maitland so you’ll ponder for a time
C
Just what it was that caused me to pen this little rhyme
C7 F
I really can’t explain it it’s oh so hard to do
C G7 C
But I love that little fella every bit as much as you

F C
I know he has no beating heart within his iron frame
F C G7
And he’s just a little statue but there’s no given name
C C7 F
But treat him as you would a child and not as something caste
C G7 C
And let him stand in memory or your town’s historic past
