                Hi folks,
 Does anyone have the chords for 'And the band played Waltzing Matilda', 
 by Eric Bogle? 

Well, I don't know the Eric Bogle version, but I once had a tape of some
Tommy Makum & Ian Clency (Hope I spelled their names right..) live concert
where they played this and they used the following cords. Just try 'em and
see if they fit. It's in a swingy 3/4 or maybe 6/8. 

And the band played Waltzing Matilda

C            F           C          a
When I was a young man I carried my pack
      C              G         C
and I lived the free life of a rover.
C        F            C            C        a
  C          G           C
I waltzed my Matilda all over.
     G                   F             C
Then nineteen fifteen my country said "son,
     G                                 F          C
It's time you stopped ramblin' there's work to be done!"
                   a                C         a
And they gave me a tin hat and they gave me a gun
         C       G           C
And they sent me away to the war.
C                   F?        C
But the band played "Waltzing Matilda"
       C           F             G
As the ship pulled away from the quay,
    F            d               C          F
But amid all the tears, the flag waving and cheers,
     C          G       C
They sent us to Galipolis
		 ^^^ sp.?

And so forth.
