F#m
I am Jeremiah Dixon
F#m
I am a Geordie boy
F#m
A glass of wine with you, sir
	  A	      D	
And the ladies I'll enjoy
    E		   A 	  D
All Durham and Northumberland
   E		  A       D   	A
Is measured up by my own hand
E	   A	     D
It was my fate from birth
D			 E
To make my mark upon the earth...


   F#m
He calls me Charlie Mason
F#m
A stargazer am I
F#m
It seems that I was born
   A		      D
To chart the evening sky
	E	       A       D
They'd cut me out for baking bread
    E             A        D
But I had other dreams instead
      E			   A         D
This baker's boy from the west country
D			   E
Would join the Royal Society...


	A       E  	F#m   D
We are sailing to Philadelphia
A         E            Bbm   E
A world away from the coaly Tyne
 C#m	     F#m      D
Sailing to Philadelphia 
F#m          E
To draw the line
   D     E     A
A Mason-Dixon Line

F#m
Now you're a good surveyor, Dixon
F#m
But I swear you'll make me mad
F#m
The West will kill us both
     A		      D
You gullible Geordie lad
    E	     A    D
You talk of liberty
     E        A      D
How can America be free
   E             A       D
A Geordie and a baker's boy
        D                  E
In the forests of the Iroquois...


F#m
Now hold your head up, Mason
F#m
See America lies there
F#m
The morning tide has raised
     A            D
The capes of Delaware
E	     A        D
Come up and feel the sun
E      A             D
A new morning has begun
  E		  A        D
Another day will make it clear
  D				E
Why your stars should guide us here...
