BUT CLAPTON DID A VERSION OF IT!
So, really, yes, it was Clapton. And that's the one I'm telling him to listen to.

Waltzing Matilda, by Larry Pattis!

I've never actually found any tabs for the song, but it's still amazing. It's a fingerstyle version of what is apparently the unofficial national anthem of Australia... so if you only search for "Waltzing Matilda," you're results will include a whole lot of vocal songs sung by people with awesome accents.
Gotta finish my work, then play some grooves, so I can turn my room into a house of blues...

Aaaaand this is to finally clarify everything about the Clapton issue. I present to you a quote from the Wikipedia article for "Classical Gas":

"There is a common misconception that "Classical Gas" was composed and performed by Eric Clapton, when in fact Clapton was never even known to have recorded a cover of the song. This misconception may possibly be attributed to the fact that Clapton was musical director of, and played much of the guitar music for, the feature film The Story of Us, whereas the version of "Classical Gas" on the film's soundtrack is actually Williams's own solo-guitar re-recording of it, from his 1970 album Hand Made."
