I came from the dream-time, From the dusty red-soil plains
                 Am         F      G      C

I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come.

I fought the land, endured the lash, And waited for the rains

I'm a settler, I'm a farmer's wife, On a dry and barren run,

A convict, then a free man, I became Australian

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.

I am Albert Namatjira, And I paint the ghostly gums.

The spirit of this great land, I am Australian.
