Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

All 4 ladies promenade, once around that billabong
Come back home and swing, you swing him with glee
Join hands, circle to the left around that billabong
Allemande left your corner girl and weave that ring
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Swing and promenade 'neath the coolabah tree
He sang as he watched and waited 'till his Billy boiled
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head two couples promenade halfway round that billabong
Walk right in, square thru 4 hands you see
Touch 1/4, then follow your neighbor round the ring
Hang on, trade the wave, all 8 circulate
Explode and square thru 3/4 round now
Swing and promenade 'neath the coolabah tree
He sang as he watched and waited 'till his Billy boiled
You'll come a 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.
