Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies chain, turn there with that pretty Jane
You roll away and circle left
Four ladies roll away and circle to the left
Allemande the corner and weave the ring
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Swing with your girl and promenade
He sat, and watched, and waited by the billabong
You'll come waltzing, Matilda, with me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads make a right hand star
To the corner girl allemande left
With your partner dosado, it's back to back
Four boys star by the left
Home you go and turn her by the right
Turn your corner by the left hand and roll promenade
He sat, and watched, and waited by the billabong
You'll come waltzing, Matilda, with me

Waltzing Matilda Lyrics ID: 474

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah-tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda,
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled,
"Who'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 shoved 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 shoved that jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

Up rode a squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred;
Down came the troopers, one, two, three:
"Who's 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.
Who's that jolly jumbuck 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 catch me alive!" said he;
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!"

Lyrics by Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson.
