    Default Waltzing Matilda - Come On!

    Please join the Waltzing Matildathon(coined by Pootsie, good one)
    I have decided that the quality of the entries deserves a PRIZE
    They minted a Waltzing Matilda $1 coin in 1995.
    The un-circulated ones are worth at least $7 now.
    So at end of February all entries will go in a hat and the one drawn out by my grandson Jaxson will win an increasingly valuable ONE DOLLAR coin in its special folder.

    Not a contest.
    Not even really a challenge.
    But if you would like to do a cover of Waltzing Matilda I'd love to see it.
    If you speak a language other than English it would be interesting to hear what that sounds like - now that does sound like a challenge.
    There are two melodies - the other one is called the Queensland Version.
    If you already have done a video - no matter how long ago please post it here.
    There are no rules or conditions just let's Waltz with Matilda.
    Any song that refers to 'Waltzing Matilda' is welcome.
    If you can make a connection with the song and 'Walzing Matilda' post it here.

    Well I thought I had done this but it appears I haven't. So I'll try to get a USA heartland version done for you soon.

    We use to sing this song in school so, I'll give it a shot. I know I have the sheet music for it somewhere and I'll dedicate it to a couple of my cousins that live in Australia. The only problem is that if they hear it, they may claim to not know me!

    Very nice and relaxed.

    And it's so odd, a friend and I were talking about the two versions last night, probably right as you were posting this!

    This is my take on the Waltzing Matilda melody.
    I told my aged 20-30 employees that I had written a parody to the tune of Waltzing Matilda. I expected them to ask me what a parody was. Instead they asked me what Waltzing Matilda was.

    Pretty appropriate really. It is a song of crime and punishment. I take that Governor didn't 'dive in to the billabong' though? I think that did make the news down here - the graft and corruption not the parody song.

    The Queensland Version on sopranino recorder. Took lots of takes which explains the joy at the end. There had been quite a bit of swearing. It still has problems but I'm living with them.
