​Waltzing Matilda

This song is by Burl Ives.

Once a jolly swagman, sat beside the billabong
Under the shade of the coolibah tree
And he sang as he sat and waited by the billiabong
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he sat and waited by the billiabong
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Down came a jumbuck to drink beside the billabong
Up jumped the swagman and seized him with glee
And he sang as he talked to that jumbuck in his tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he talked to that jumbuck in his tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Down came the stockman riding on his thorough bred
Down came the troopers, one, two, three
Where's that jolly jumbuck that you've got in your tucker bag?
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
Where's that jolly jumbuck that you've got in your tucker bag?
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Up jumped the swagman, plunged into the billabong
You'll never catch me alive cried he
And his ghost may be heard as you ride beside the billabong
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And his ghost may be heard as you ride beside the billabong
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
