	Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda,

	you'll come a waltzing Matilda with me


Down came a jumbuck to drink at that 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 Matilda with me

Up rode the Squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred
Down came the troopers, one , two, three
Whose that jolly jumbuck you've got in ya tucker-bag?
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Up jumped the Swagman and sprang into the billabong 
You'll never catch me alive said he,
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

 Chorus 3rd line variations

- And he sang as he watched and waited til his billy boild
- And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker-bag
- Whose that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag
- And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong

Down came a jumbuck to drink at the water-hole
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
And he sang as stwoed him away in his tucker bag
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Down came the squatter a-riding his thoroughbred
Down came policeman - one, two, and three
Whose is the jumbuck you've got in the tucker bag
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.

But the swagman he up and he jumped in the water-hole
Drowning himself by the coolibah tree
And his ghost may be heard as it sings in the billabong
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

   Come a-walt-zing  Ma-til-da with me

Chorus:
Waltzing Matilda, Matilda my darling,
Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me,
Waltzing Matilda and leading a water bag
Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?

Along came a jumbuck and he drank from the billabong
Down jumped the swagman and he grabbed him with glee
And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck 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, three, 
Whose is the jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag? 
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.

Well up jumped the swagman and he leapt into the billabong, 
He drowned 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?
