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


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


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


A A F#m F#m A A F#m F#m E E

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


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