Waltzing Matilda
Rolf Harris
Waltzing Matilda Guitar Chords (C)

Back in the 60's American schools taught songs from
 other lands, but they only taught the first verse. 
Today it is venerated as the Australian equivalent of 
Amazing Grace and Star Spangled Banner but you'll have
to hear all the verses to explain why it never became
an official national official anthem. The late Rolf 
Harris explained Aussie english dialect something like this: 


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 don't 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)

Chorus:
C               F
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
C             Am          F        G
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
       C          G           Am              F
*And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled
C           Am            G          C
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me


Verse 2    
C            G       Am          F       
Down came a jumbuck to dri-ink at that billabong
            (sheep)
C              Am          G               G7
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
                                      (apparent free lunch)
          C          G           Am              F
And he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his tucker-bag
                                      (that's a bag for your tucker)
C           Am            G          C
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

 
[Chorus]


Verse 3  
C            G       Am          F      
Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred
    (man who owns the sheep)         (fancy name for horse)
 C              Am          G               G7
Up rode the troopers, one, two, three (the cops, guns drawn)
 C                  G       Am                 F
"Who's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?"
                         (oops no free lunch)
C           Am            G          C
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me


Chorus:
C               F
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
C             Am          F        G
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
       C          G           Am              F
"Who's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?"
C           Am            G          C
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me



Verse 4: Stealing sheep was a death sentence then, so he chose freedom.

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 can't 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 that's why this song will never be Australia's national anthem
  C           Am            G          C
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
