Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
D ASince I was just a little boy, I’ve been wondering why
Bm GThis great old culture we should be helping to heal is so often pushed aside
D ASo many children taken away, so much abuse and rape
Bm GWhen will it be high priority to educate and make some real change?
D AI’ve seen it in communities, so many that it’s hard to believe
Bm G D AElders speaking wisdom, far beyond what they choose to teach in history
D AAnd young hearts just drinking it away, understanding why their culture was so shamed
Bm G D AWaiting for a reason, what was taken off still hasn’t been replaced
[Chorus]
DMy own eyes...
AI saw it with my own eyes
Bm GI did, I did (yeah, I did)
D A D A DThat’s why I know this is true (yeah, it’s true)
[Verse 2]
A DI’ve seen it down in sacred Tassie
AWhere they’re cutting all those big old trees
Bm G D AForty-four football fields a day is what they clear and ain’t that hard to believe?
D ABut all for the economy, raping country that our children won’t see
Bm G D AAnd even Peter Garrett is lying down when we thought that he might be the key
[Chorus]
DYeah, well, my own eyes...
AI saw it with my own eyes
Bm GI did, I did (yeah, I did)
D A D A DThat’s why I know this is true (yeah, it's true)
[Verse 3]
A D AI’ve seen it up in Nhulunbuy, bringing alcohol to sacred soil
Bm G D AA place still thriving with language and culture by now should just fucken’ be preserved
D APeople climbing up on Uluru, behind those fences are the people who know
Bm G D AWhile Qantas is still flying to Ayers Rock, despite years and years of truth
[Chorus]
DYeah, well, my own eyes...
AI saw it with my own eyes
Bm GI did, I did (yeah, I did)
D A D A D AThat’s why I know this is true (yeah, it's true)
[Solo] D A Bm G

D A Bm GHeyyy Ohhh
D A D [Verse 4]
A D AAnd I’ve seen it in the Kimberley, part of the key to human history
Bm G D ASee there’s rock art as old as the great ice age, still there for the world to see
D ADemolish it for industry. We’ll create so many jobs you see
Bm G D AIn a country so wealthy, still burning coal for electricity
[Chrus]
DYeah, well, my own eyes...
AI saw it with my own eyes
Bm GI did, I did (yeah, I did)
D A D A DThat’s why I know this is true (yeah, it's true)
[Verse 5]
A DSame old things we always hear
ALies to fill the pockets of the rich
Bm GNo respect for culture, the animals, the environment
D AOur future or just the air we breathe
