Jumbuck is a sheep, tuckerbag is a sac. It's from Waltzing Matilda.

Also, I'm pretty sure you can't derail your own blog.

It's a very morbid, sugar-coated song, because according to Wiki, where it goes "grabbed him with glee" and "stuffed... into the tuckerbag", this guy is actually killing and dismembering the sheep and packing the body parts into a sack, then the owner and the police come along and call it a "jolly jumbuck"... I'm not australian but i think it's kind of hilarious.

Hahahaha! Girlfriend I can find a way to derail almost anything...almost NEVER intentional! LOL! However, I do go off topic, because my brain has flashes of things popping in and out during a conversation.

I like that song Waltzing Matilda! Thanks for the explanation!

Default ok where the heck do they say jumbuck and tuckerbag?

http://youtu.be/_E9Nu8JinM0

Someone find me the original poem! I think I am missing it or I have some attention deficit issue because I couldn't hear it. LOL!

I always loved this song...I like the poignant, melancholy ones. I think the life of a rover would have suited me. Made me think of that notion, just picking up and going when the mood strikes. I think I have a wee bit of gypsy blood in me.

Verse #3 where it goes

Down came the stockman mounted on a thorobred,

Down Came the troopers - 1,2,3!

"Where's the jolly jumbuck that you've got in your tuckerbag?"

You'll come a-waltzing Matilda w/ me.


I don't know which version you're listening to, but mine is off "The Best of Jimmie Rodgers"
