I Am Australian

Seekers

 CFC
came from the dream-time, From the dusty red-soil plains
 AmFGC
I am the ancient heart, The keeper of the flame
 FGAm
I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come.
 CFGC
For forty thousand years I've been, The first Australian

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

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

 CFC
 We are one, but we are many,
 CEmAmGC
 And from all the lands on earth we come.
 EmAmFC
We'll share a  dream and sing with one voice,
 FCAmGFGC
"am, you are, we are Australian"

 CFC
I'm a teller of stories, I'm a singer of songs,
 AmFGC
I am Albert Namatjira, And I paint the ghostly gums.
 FGAm
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run,
 CFGC
I'm the one who waltzed Matilda, I am Australian.

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

 CFC
 We are one, but we are many,
 CEmAmGC
 And from all the lands on earth we come.
 EmAmFC
We'll share a  dream and sing with one voice,
 FCAmGFGC
"am, you are, we are Australian"

 FCAmGFGC
"am, you are, we are Australian"
