Waltzing Matilda

Written by Marie Cowan/Luigi Creatore/Paterson/Hugo Peretti/Jimmie Rodgers/Traditional

	  		verse 1 
C            G       Am              F       
Once a jolly swagman camped beside a billabong 
(Hobo, travelling contractor)       (a lakeshore) 
C         Am        G          G7 
Under the shade of coolibah tree 
                   (a kind of tree they donít have here) 
       C          G           Am              F 
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled 
                    (billy=coffee. No Starbucks in the outback) 
C                         G          C 
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me 
                       (his bedroll and dancing partner)

verse 4: C G Am F Up jumped the swagman and sprang into that billabong (splash) C Am F G "You'll never take me alive!", said he (he canít swim) C G Am F And his ghost may be heard as you stroll beside that billabong C Am G C You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me Chorus Extra Chorus Ending C G Am F And thatís why this song will never be Australiaís national anthem C Am G C You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
