Jeremiah Dixon I am a Geordie boy A glass of wine with you, sir And the

[D]hand  It [E]was my f[A]ate from bi[D]rth To [Dmaj7]make my mark upon the[Eadd9] earth
[F#m]He calls me Charlie Mason A stargazer am I It seems that I was born
[A]To chart the eveni[D]ng sky The[E]y'd cut me out for bak[A]ing br[D]ead
B[E]ut I had other dre[A]ams ins[D]tead Th[E]is baker's boy from [A]the west co[D]untry
Wo[Dmaj7]uld join the Royal So[Eadd9]ciety...

[F#m]Now you're a good surveyor, Dixon But I swear you'll make me mad
The West will kill us both You gullible G[A]eordie l[D]ad Yo[E]u talk of[A] liber[D]ty
[E]How can America b[A]e fr[D]ee A[E] Geordie and a ba[A]ker's b[D]oy
[Dmaj7]In the forests of the[Eadd9] Iroquois...
[F#m]Now hold your head up, Mason See America lies there
The morning tide has raised The ca[A]pes of Del[D]aware Co[E]me up and f[A]eel the
[D]sun A[E] new morning h[A]as be[D]gun An[E]other day will ma[A]ke it cl[D]ear
[Dmaj7]Why your stars should[Eadd9] guide us here...
