[edit]
Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled.
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 watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
You'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 stowed 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 stowed that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

Instrumental

Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred,

With 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.
With that jolly jumbuck that you've got in your tucker bag
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're passing by that 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're passing by that billabong,
You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me,
You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

From his album: "The Very Best of Slim Dusty"
