I Sing This Song Every Year On 11-11

And The Band played Waltzing Mathilda

Now when I was a young man, I carried me pack
And I lived the free life of a rover
From the Murray's green basin to the dusty outback
Well, I waltzed my Mathilda all over
Then in 1915, my country said son
It's time you stopped rambling, there's work to be done
So they gave me a tin hat, and they gave me a gun
And the marched me away to the war
[get the rest of the lyrics from the official site, linked below]

(Eric Bogle)
