Roy Orbison — Waltzing Matilda lyrics

Words and music: m. cowanRoy sang this song whilst on an australian tourIt was taped by a fan and circulated.....Once a jolly swagman, camp´d by a billabong,Under the shade of a coolibah tree,And he sang as he watch´d and waited till 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 sat and waited till his billy boiled,You´ll come a waltzing matilda with me.Down came a jumbuck to drink at that billabong,Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,And he sang as he shaoved 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 shaoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag,You´ll come a waltzing matilda with me.Up rode the squatter mounted on his thoroughbred,Down come the troopers, one, two, three,Whose that jolly jumbuck 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,Whose that jolly jumbuck you´ve got in your tucker bag? You´ll come a waltzing matilda with me.Up jumped the swagman, sprang into the billabong,Drowning himself by the coolibah tree,And his ghost may be heard as you pass 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 pass by that billabong,You´ll come a waltzing matilda with me.
