Annotationen

Die inoffizielle Hymne Australiens. Ein Wanderarbeiter (swagman) auf der Waltz campiert an einem See/Flussarm (billabong) und kocht sich Wasser für eine Suppe. Ein wildes Schaf kommt in seine Nähe, er packt es sich, um es zu essen. Dabei wird er von einem Landbesitzer und von einem Polizisten ertappt (obwohl es kein Unrecht darstellt, ein wildes Schaf zu fangen). Die beiden versuchen den Wanderarbeiter zu verhaften. Dieser entzieht sich, in dem er in den See springt und ertrinkt: Der Swagman stirbt für seine Freiheit und er bzw. sein Lied spukt an dieser Stelle herum – und in den Köpfen des australischen Volkes.
Die Version von Williamson führt die Bushballad als Folksong ein und steigert die Performance zur Hymne.

Lyrics

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 jumbug 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 jumbug in his tucker bag You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me Up rode the squatter melded on his thoroughbred Up rode the troopers one two three With that jolly jumbug 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 jumbug 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 passing by the 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 passing by the billabong You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
