Guitar chords with lyrics

C                 F       C
I came from the dreamtime, From the dusty red-soil plains
         Am     F    G   C
I am the ancient heart, the keeper of the flame
                 F      G     Am
I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come
   C                  F    G  C
For forty thousand years I've been, The first Australian


 C                F      C
I came upon the prison ship, Bowed down by iron chains
 Am                   F   G    C
I fought the land, endured the lash, And waited for the rains
                     F    G   Am
I'm a settler, I'm a farmer's wife, On a dry and barren run,
 C               F    G  C
A convict, then a free man, I became Australian


    C             F         C
I'm the daughter of a digger, Who sought the mother lode.
  Am             F    G   C
The girl became a woman, On the long and dusty road.
                 F    G     Am
I'm a child of the Depression, I saw the good times come,
   C            F   G  C
I'm a bushie, I'm a battler, I am Australian.


C C. C        F C
We are one, but we are many,
C  Em  Am   G         C
And from all the lands on earth we come.
      Em Am         F  C
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice,
 F C  Am G    C    G  C
"I am, you are, we are Australian"

   C            F     C
I'm a teller of stories, I'm a singer of songs,
   Am           F     G    C
I am Albert Namatjira, And I paint the ghostly gums.
                 F   G   Am
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run,
    C             F   G  C
I'm the one who waltzed Matilda, I am Australian.

    C                 F         C
I'm the hot wind from the desert, I'm the black soil of the plains,
    Am                 F      G    C
I'm the mountains and the valleys, I'm the drought and flooding rains.
                 F   G     Am
I am the rock, I am the sky, The rivers when they run,
  C              F   G  C
The spirit of this great land, I am Australian.


C C. C        F C
We are one, but we are many,
C  Em  Am   G         C
And from all the lands on earth we come.
      Em Am         F  C
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice,
 F C  Am G    C    G  C
"I am, you are, we are Australian"

 F C  Am G    C    G  C
