Waltzing Mathilda  Traditional

[C]Once a jolly [G]swagman camped beside a [F]billabong
[C]Under the shade of a [G]coolibah tree,
And he [C]sang as he [G]watched and [C]waited 'till his [F]billy boiled,
[C]"You'll come a waltzing, Ma[G]thilda, with [C]me."

Chorus:
     [C]"Waltzing Mathilda, [F]waltzing Mathilda,
     [C]You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with [G]me."
     And he [C]sang as he [G]watched and [C]waited 'till his [F]billy boiled,
     [C]"You'll come a waltzing, Ma[G]thilda, with [C]me."

Down came a jumpbuck to drink at the billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he stowed that jumpbuck in his tucker bag,
"You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with me."

Chorus.

Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred,
Down came the troopers, one, two, three.
"Where's that jolly jumpbuck you've got in your tucker bag?
You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with me."

Chorus.

Up jumped the swagman, sprang into the billabong,
"You'll never catch me alive," said he.
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
"You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with me."

Chorus.
