GWhen I wCas a young mGan I carrieEmd me pack And I Glived the free Dlife of a Grover From the Murray's green Cbasin to the Gdusty OutEmback I Gwaltzed my MatDilda all Gover Then in D1915 me Ccountry said, GSon It's Dtime you stopped rambling there's Cwork to be Gdone So they gave me a Ctin hat, and they Ggave me a Emgun And they Gmarched me awDay to the Gwar GAnd the band played CWaltzing MatGilda When the ship pulled awCay from the DquayDsus4 D And amCidst all the Amtears, flag-Gwaving and Emcheers We Gsailed off for DGallipoGli Gsus4 G And how Gwell I reCmember that Gterrible Emday When our Gblood stained the Dsand and the Gwater And how in that Chell that they Gcall Suvla EmBay We were Gbutchered like Dlambs at the Gslaughter Johnny DTurk he was ready, he'd Cprimed himself Gwell He Drained us with bullets, and he Cshowered us with Gshells And in five minutes Cflat he'd Gblown us all to Emhell Nearly Gblew us back Dhome to AustrGalia GAnd the band played CWaltzing MatGilda When we stopped to Cbury our DslaiDsus4n D CWe buried Amours, and the GTurks buried Emtheirs Then we Gstarted all Dover agGainGsus4 G And tGhose that were Cleft, well, we Gtried to surEmvive In that Gmad world of Dblood, death and Gfire And for ten weary Cweeks I kept Gmyself alEmive While arGound me the Dcorpses piled Ghigher Then a Dbig Turkish shell knocked me Carse over Ghead And Dwhen I awoke in me Chospital Gbed And saw what it had Cdone, well, I Gwished I was Emdead Never Gknew there was Dworse things than Gdying GSo no more I'll go CWaltzing MatGilda All around the green Cbush far and DnearDsus4 D To Chump tent and Ampegs a Gman needs both Emlegs No more GWaltzing MatDilda for Gme Gsus4 G So they Ggathered the Cwounded, the Gcrippled, the Emmaimed And they Gshipped us back Dhome to AustrGalia The armless, the Clegless, the Gblind, the inEmsane Those Gproud wounded Dheroes of GSuvla And Dwhen the ship pulled into CCircular GQuay I Dlooked at the place where me Clegs used to Gbe And thanked Christ there was Cno one there Gwaiting for Emme To Ggrieve and to Dmourn and to Gpity GAnd the band played CWaltzing MatGilda When they carried us Cdown the gangDway Dsus4 D But Cnobody Amcheered, they just Gstood there and Emstared Then they Gturned all their Dfaces aGwayGsus4 G So Gnow every CApril I Gsit on my Emporch And I Gwatch the parDade pass beGfore me I see my old Ccomrades how Gproudly they Emmarch ReGnewing old Ddreams of past Gglory And the Dold men march slowly, all Cbones stiff and Gsore They're Dtired old heroes from a Cforgotten Gwar And the young people Cask, "What are tGhey marching fEmor?" And GI ask myDself the same Gquestion GAnd the band plays CWaltzing MatGilda And the old men still Canswer the DcallDsus4 D But Cyear after Amyear their Gnumbers are Emfewer Someday Gno one will Dmarch there at GallGsus4 G GWaltzing Matilda, CWaltzing Matilda GWho'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with Dme? And their Gghosts may be Dheard as Emthey march by the CBillabong CWho'll come a-GWaltzing MaD7tilda with Gme?
