            Em

1. I am Jeremiah Dixon, I am a Geordie boy,

                                                                G                C

    a glass of wine with you, sir , and the ladies I'll enjoy.

           D                         G       C            D                      G           C

    All Durham and Northumberland is measured up by my own hand,

D                  G             C          Em                                 D       ~

    it was my fate from birth to make my mark upon the earth.

          Em

2. He calls me Charlie Mason, a stargazer am I,

                                                  G                         C

    it seems that I was born to chart the evening sky.

                D                     G           C          D                     G            C

    They'd cut me out for baking bread, but I had other dreams instead,

            D                               G             C           Em                           D ~

    this baker's boy from the west country would join the Royal Society.

              G      - D              Em  C  - G              Bm                Am    D

We are sailing      to Philadelphia,      world away from the coaly Tyne,

 Bm                  Em   C  - Em                  D              C     - D             G

sailing to Philadelphia          to draw the line, the Mason    - Dixon Line.

    - Em - G - Em - D

                          Em

3. Now you're a good surveyor, Dixon, but I swear you'll make me mad,

                                                    G                       C

    the West will kill us both, you gullible Geordie lad.

D                   G     C           D             G        C

    You talk of liberty, how can America be free ?

           D                   G          C            Em                        D    ~

    A Geordie and a baker's boy in the forests of the Iroquois.

            Em

4. Now hold your head up, Mason, see America lies there,

                                                        G                     C

    the morning tide has raised, the capes of Delaware.

D                          G          C    - D                       G       C

     Come up and feel the sun,     a new morning is begun,

        D                      G          C      Em                                             D   ~

    another day will make it clear, why your stars should guide us here.

              G      - D              Em  C  - G              Bm                Am    D

We are sailing      to Philadelphia,      world away from the coaly Tyne,

 Bm                  Em   C  - Em                  D

sailing to Philadelphia          to draw the line,

        C     - D            Am   - D          C      - D            G

the Mason    - Dixon Line,      the Mason     -Dixon Line

- Em - G - Em - D           - Em - G - Em - D  ....

(capo 2nd)
