Waltzing Matilda – The unofficial Australian Anthem sung around many a campfire

Oh there was once a swagman camped in the billabongs,
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree;
And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling,
’Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.’

Who’ll come a-waltzing 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.

Up came the jumbuck to drink at the waterhole,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him in glee;
And he sang as he put him away in his tucker-bag,
’You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.’


Up came the squatter a-riding his thoroughbred;
Up came policemen – one, two and three.
‘Whose is the jumbuck you’ve got in the tucker bag?
You’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with we.’


Up sprang the swagman and jumped in the waterhole,
Drowning himself by the Coolibah tree;
And his voice can be heard as it sings in the billabongs,
’Who’ll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?’


A.B Paterson 1895

Thank you for looking.
