##From: mike##(old or Queensland Version)#words by Banjo PAtterson#
[4/4]    [D]Once a jolly [A]swagman [Bm]camp'd by a b[G]illab[D]ong
[D]under the [A7]shade of a [D/F#]cool-i-[A7]bah tree[D] and he
[D]sang as he [A]watched and [Bm]waited till his [G]billy boiled
[D]You'll come a waltzing Ma-[A7]til-da with m[D]e
        [D/F#]Waltzing Matilda, [G]Waltzing Ma[D]tilda,
        [D]you'll come a [G]waltzing [D]Ma-[D/F#]til-da with m[A/C#]e and he
        [D]sang as w[A7]atched and [Bm]waited till his [G]billy boiled
        [D]you'll come a waltzing Ma[A7]tilda with me[D]
Down came a jumbuck to drink at the wqater-hole
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 Matilda with me
Down came the Squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred
Down came the troopers, one , two and three
Whose is that jumbuck you've got in ya tucker-bag?
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
But the swagman he up and jumped in the water-hole
Drowning himself by the Coolibah tree
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
