My Own Eyes

	  
verse 1 
D                               A 
Since I was just a little boy, Iíve been wondering why 
Bm                                                       G 
This great old culture we should be helping to heal is so often pushed aside 
D                            A 
So many children taken away, so much abuse and rape 
Bm                                G 
When will it be high priority to educate and make some real change? 
                D                              A 
Iíve seen it in communities, so many that itís hard to believe 
              Bm            G                                    D   A 
Elders speaking wisdom, far beyond what they choose to teach in history 
                      D                                         A 
And young hearts just drinking it away, understanding why their culture was so shamed 
              Bm               G                D          A 
Waiting for a reason, what was taken off still hasnít been replaced

verse 2 A D Iíve seen it down in sacred Tassie A Where theyíre cutting all those big old trees Bm G D A Forty-four football fields a day is what they clear and ainít that hard to believe?

verse 3 A D A Iíve seen it up in Nhulunbuy, bringing alcohol to sacred soil Bm G D A A place still thriving with language and culture by now should just fuckení be preserved D A People climbing up on Uluru, behind those fences are the people who know Bm G D A While Qantas is still flying to Ayers Rock, despite years and years of truth

Weíll create so many jobs you see Bm G D A In a country so wealthy, still burning coal for electricity

Verse 5 A D Same old things we always hear A Lies to fill the pockets of the rich Bm G No respect for culture, the animals, the environment D A Our future or just the air we breathe D A Bm G Mmmmmmmm aaaaaaaa nananaa nananaaa oooooo aaaaaaaa
tabchorus
D Yeah, our own eyes... A Weíve seen this with our own eyes Bm G For years we did, for centuries we did D A Thatís why we know this is true D Yeah, well, my own eyes... A I saw it with my own eyes Bm G I did, I did (yeah, I did) D A D Thatís why I know this is true (yeah, it's true)
