Waltzing Matilda
(old or Queensland Version)

words by Banjo PAtterson


D            A       Bm           G    D
Once a jolly swagman camp'd by a billabong
D         A7         D/F#   A7      D
under the shade of a cool-i-bah tree and he
D          A           Bm              G
sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled
D                         A7           D
You'll come a waltzing Ma-til-da with me

	D/F#              G          D
	Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda,
	D             G        D  D/F#         A/C#
	you'll come a waltzing Ma-til-da with me and he
	D        A7         Bm              G
	sang as watched and waited till his billy boiled
	D                        A7           D
	you'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

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
