Waltzing Mathilda

Traditional

 CGF
 Once a jolly swagman camped beside a billabong
 CG
 Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
 CGCF
And he sang as he watched and waited 'till his billy boiled,
 CGC
 "You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with me."

Chorus:
 CF
     "Waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
 CG
     You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with me."
 CGCF
     And he sang as he watched and waited 'till his billy boiled,
 CGC
     "You'll come a waltzing, Mathilda, with 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.
