I Am You Are We Are Australian

	  		
  C                                 F             C  
I came from the dreamtime, From the dusty red-soil plains  
                 Am         F       G      C  
I am the ancient heart, the keeper of the flame  
                                 F           G          Am   F 
I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come  
     C             Dm                    F        G    C  
For forty thousand years I've been, The first Australian  


  C                                F            C  
I came upon the prison ship, Bowed down by iron chains  
  Am                                     F      G       C  
I fought the land, endured the lash, And waited for the rains  
                                         F       G      Am   F 
I'm a settler, I'm a farmer's wife, On a dry and barren run,  
  C                Dm           F        G   C  
A convict, then a free man, I became Australian  


        C                         F                 C  
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   F 
I'm a child of the Depression, I saw the good times come,  
      C             Dm         F      G   C  
I'm a bushie, I'm a battler, I am Australian.  


C  C.  C               F C  
We are one, but we are many,  
C        Am      G                 C  
And from all the lands on earth we come.  
            Em Am                  F   C  
We'll share a  dream and sing with one voice,  
 F C   Am  G       F       G   C  
"I am, you are, we are Australian"  

      C                        F         C  
I'm a teller of stories, I'm a singer of songs,  
     Am                      F         G       C  
I am Albert Namatjira, And I paint the ghostly gums.  
                                 F     G      Am  F 
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run,  
        C              Dm          F      G   C  
I'm the one who waltzed Matilda, I am Australian.  

        C                                 F                 C  
I'm the hot wind from the desert, I'm the black soil of the plains,  
        Am                                 F           G        C  
I'm the mountains and the valleys, I'm the drought and flooding rains.  
                                 F      G         Am  F 
I am the rock, I am the sky, The rivers when they run,  
    C              Dm            F      G   C  
The spirit of this great land, I am Australian.  


C    C               F C  
We are one, but we are many,  
C        Am      G                 C  
And from all the lands on earth we come.  
            Em Am                  F   C  
We'll share a  dream and sing with one voice,  
 F C   Am  G       F       G   C  
"I am, you are, we are Australian"  

 F C   Am  G       F       G   C  
"I am, you are, we are Australian"
