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:
“You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me.”
These way start the lyrics of “Waltzing Matilda”, Australia's most popular bush song. The ballad narrates the adventure of a swagman. He was at his camp making his billy tea. He captured a sheep to eat but the sheep's owner and the police pursued the protagonist. He drowned himself in a billabong and since this moment the swagman's ghost dwells the place.
