Tom Trauberts Blues  Stewart Rod

       I´ve [Gm]got what I paid for [F]now   [C]    [F]
       [Bb]See you tomorrow, hey [F]Frank, can I borrow
       A [G]couple of bucks from [C]you to go
       [F]Waltzing Matilda,[C]   [F]waltzing [Gm]Matilda, [F]you´ll go waltzing
       Ma[Gm]tilda with [C]me

2.: I´m an innocent victim of a blinded alley
And I´m tired of all these soldiers here
No one speaks english and everything´s broken
And my strength is soaking away to go
Waltzing Matilda,...

3.: Now I´ve lost my St. Christopher
Now that I´ve kissed her
And the one-armed bandit knows
And the maverick chinaman with the cold blooded signs
And the girls down by the striptease shows go
Waltzing Matilda,...

4.: No, I don´t want your sympathy
The fugitives say, that the streets aren´t for dreaming now
Manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories
They want a piece of the action anyhow go
Waltzing Matilda,...

5.: And it´s a battered old suitcase
To a hotel someplace
And a wound that will never heal
No primadonnas, the perfume is on
       An old [Gm]shirt that is [C]stained
       [C7]With [F]blood [C]and [F]whiskey
       And it´s [Bb]good-night for the street-sweepers,
       The night[F]watchmen, flame-keepers
       And [Gm]goodnight ma[C]til[C7]da, [F]too

Outro: Gm/F/Bb/Bb/F
       [Gm]Goodnight Ma[C]til[C7]da, [F]too
