Rod Stewart - Tom Traubert's Blues (Waltzing Matilda) Lyrics

Wasted and wounded
And it ain't what the moon did
I got what I paid for now
See you tomorrow
Hey Frank can I borrow
A couple of bucks from you
To go waltzing Matilda waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

I'm an innocent victim
of a blinded alley
And I'm tired of all these soldiers here
No-one speaks English
And everything's broken
And my strength is soaking away
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Malitda with me

Now the dogs they are barking
and the taxi cab's parking
A lot they can do for me
I begged you to stab me
You tore my shirt open
And I'm down on my knees tonight

Old bushmills I staggered
You buried the dagger
Your silhouette window light
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me

Now I've lost my St. Christopher
Now that I kissed her
And the one-arm bandit knows
And the maverick Chinaman
with the cold-blooded sigh
And the girls down by the striptease shows go
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me

No I don't want your sympathy
Fugitives say
that the streets aren't for dreaming now
Manslaughter dragnet
and the ghost that sells memories
Want a piece of the action anyhow
Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

And you can ask any sailor
And the keys from the jailor
And the old men in wheelchairs know
That Matilda's the defendant
She killed about a hundred
And she follows wherever you may go
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me

And it's a battered old suitcase
in a hotel someplace
And a wound that would never heal
No prima donnas the perfume is on
and old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
And goodnight to the street-sweepers,
The night watchmen flame-keepers
And goodnight Matilda too
Goodnight Matilda too.

    You stole a Tom Waits song, that is unforgivable..!!


    Good old Rod .. He pinched "Sailing" from the album "Lifeboat" by Sutherland Brothers and Quiver and we all know how that worked out for him. Bet there are loads of other songs he's put his stamp on & stole the glory off others..
    But we'll always love him ❤️ Sir Rod Stewart CBE a true legend ..

  35. Brenda House of Shine

    Omg, what a an artist.

    Good heavens, Rod actually looks like a man here. As he was getting older, he was in danger of starting to look like one of the menopausal Golden Girls.

  47. Tammy Branham

    And my Stacy's are soaking wet, Rod. They are wingtip shoes. Not "My strength is soaking away" Lol, What makes Tom Waits songs so great are the lyrics. Next time you need an interpreter call me, I'd be glad to help. At least you sung it well.

  67. simwebdk

    Fan of Rod Stewart yes, but without beard please.

  68. Russell Bowers

    Am I the only one who thinks Rod bears a passing resemblance to a bearded Owen Wilson in this video?
