                             Waltzing Matilda - Banjo Paterson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all,
I had a look at the other tabs for this song and thought I would write a more detailed
for those of you who want more than just the basic tune.  I recommend finger-picking:
for bass notes, fingers for melody.  I realise that C,G,Am,F aren't the original chords 
that's nothing a capo on the 2nd fret won't solve. Besides that, it sounds just fine
one. Without further ado- the classic campfire song (lyrics at the bottom.)

Tabbed by: slipperystrings
Tuning: Standard

VERSE ONE
Once a jolly swagman camped by a riverbed,
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited 'till his billy boiled,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

CHORUS
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda.
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
And he sang as he watched and waited 'till his billy boiled,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

...

VERSE TWO
Now, down came a jumbuck, to drink at the billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tuckerbag,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

CHORUS TWO
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda.
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
And he sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tuckerbag,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

...

VERSE THREE
Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred,
Down came the troopers: one, two, three.
"Whose is that jumbuck you've got in your tuckerbag?"
"You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me!"

CHORUS THREE
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda.
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
"Whose is that jumbuck you've got in your tuckerbag?"
"You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me!"

...

VERSE FOUR
The swagman he up and he jumped into the waterhole.
"You'll never take me alive," said he.
And his ghost may be heard if you're passing by that billabong,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

CHORUS FOUR
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda.
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
And his ghost may be heard if you're passing by that billabong,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."
