I'm                             F#m
Jeremiah Dixon I am a Geordie boy A glass of wine with you, sir And the
A            D         E               A    D            E              A
ladies I'll enjoy  All Durham and Northumberland Is measured up by my own
D        E       A          D      Dmaj7                Eadd9
hand  It was my fate from birth To make my mark upon the earth
F#m
He calls me Charlie Mason A stargazer am I It seems that I was born
A                 D         E                     A     D
To chart the evening sky They'd cut me out for baking bread
 E                 A      D      E                   A          D
But I had other dreams instead This baker's boy from the west country
  Dmaj7                Eadd9
Would join the Royal Society...

Chorus:

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

F#m
Now you're a good surveyor, Dixon But I swear you'll make me mad
                                         A       D    E        A     D
The West will kill us both You gullible Geordie lad You talk of liberty
E                A   D   E                A      D
How can America be free A Geordie and a baker's boy
Dmaj7                Eadd9
In the forests of the Iroquois...
F#m
Now hold your head up, Mason See America lies there
                                  A         D       E          A
The morning tide has raised The capes of Delaware Come up and feel the
D    E             A    D     E                A       D
sun A new morning has begun Another day will make it clear
Dmaj7                Eadd9
Why your stars should guide us here...

A world away from the coaly Tyne
C#m             F#m       D     F#m
Sailing to Philadelphia
                 E
