GUEST,Joerg Tom Waits (30) RE: Tune Req: Tom Waits 12 Apr 03

It took me a good piece of work to find out that the title of 'Waltzing Mathilda' is 'Tom Traubert's Blues'. Search for that and you'll find the lyrics at once. And - 'Tom Traubert's Blues' isn't 'Waltzing Mathilda' at all! Just try it on the guitar or the piano and you will find out that this is a completely different song. It's creepy to me how it sounds like some version of 'Waltzing Mathilda' and the fact that the lyrics contain these words is at the very edge of being pervert.

Ever listened to 'Georgia Lee' (that's a hard one) or 'So It Goes' (an old one) or 'Fish And Bird' (a new one), all of them are jewels.
