    Em - G - Em - D 
 
            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  ....
