"Waltzing Matilda" is Australia’s most widely known folk song and one that has been popularly suggested as a potential national anthem.

The song narrates the story of an itinerant worker (swagman)making a drink of tea at a bush camp (billy) and stealing a sheep (jumbuck)to eat. When the sheep’s owner (squatter) arrives with three police officers (troopers) to arrest the worker, he drowns himself in a small lake (Billabong) and goes on to haunt the site.

The tune is most probably based on the traditional Scottish song "Thou Bonnie Wood Of Craigielea".

The original lyrics were written in 1895 by the poet and nationalist Banjo Paterson, and it was first published as sheet music in 1903.

This is a straightforward but useful arrangement for concert band with SATB Choir - It can be used as an accompaniment to the singing of the traditional words with an extra chorus and the key change or used just as an instrumental. If you want additional parts eg Horns in Eb or Trombones in TC, just email me. There is also an optional Piano/Keyboards part with Lead Vocals (see extracted parts) - not on the score…[Score updated Version 3/18-05-2008]
