The words of WALTZING MATILDA


from a ballad by Andrew Barton “Banjo” Paterson


Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong Under the shade of a coolabah tree And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled Who’ll come a Waltzing Matilda with me Waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda Who’ll come a waltzing matilda with me And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled Who’ll come a waltzing matilda with me


Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee And he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his You’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me Waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda You’ll come a waltzing matilda with me & he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his You’ll come a waltzing matilda with me


Down came the Squatter mounted his thoroughbred Down came the troopers one, two, three Where’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tuckerbag 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 you’ve got in your tuckerbag You’ll come a waltzing matilda with me


Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong You’ll never take me alive said he And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong “Who’ll come a waltzing Matilda with me” Waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda Who’ll come a waltzing matilda with me & his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong Who’ll come a waltzing matilda with me.
