                           SAILING TO PHILADELPHIA

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Intro]
F#m  A  F#m  E


[Verses]
F#m
I am Jeremiah Dixon
F#m
I am a Geordie boy
F#m
A glass of wine with you, sir
          A           D        
And the ladies I'll enjoy
    E              A     D
All Durham and Northumberland
   E              A       D           A
Is measured up by my own hand
E          A        D
It was my fate from birth
D                        E
To make my mark upon the earth...


   F#m
He calls me Charlie Mason
F#m
A stargazer Am I
F#m
It seems that I was born
   A                  D
To chart the evening sky
        E              A       D
They'd cut me out for baking bread
    E             A        D
But I had other dreams instead
      E                    A         D
This baker's boy from the west country
D                          E
Would join the Royal Society...


        A       E      F#m   D
We are sailing to Philadelphia
A         E            Bm   E
A world away from the coaly Tyne
 C#m         F#m      D
Sailing to Philadelphia 
F#m          E
To draw the line
   D     E     A
A Mason-Dixon Line


A  F#m  A  F#m  E

F#m
Now you're a good surveyor, Dixon
F#m
But I swear you'll make me mad
F#m
The West will kill us both
     A                D
You gullible Geordie lad
    E        A    D
You talk of liberty
     E        A      D
How can America be free
   E             A       D
A Geordie and a baker's boy
        D                  E
In the forests of the Iroquois...


F#m
Now hold your head up, Mason
F#m
See America lies there
F#m
The morning tide has raised
     A            D
The capes of Delaware
E            A        D
Come up and feel the sun
E      A             D
A new morning has begun
  E               A        D
Another day will make it clear
  D                             E
Why your stars should guide us here...



        A       E      F#m   D
We are sailing to Philadelphia
A         E            Bm   E
A world away from the coaly Tyne
 C#m         F#m      D
Sailing to Philadelphia 
F#m          E
To draw the line
   D     E     D   A
A Mason-Dixon Line
   D     E     A
A Mason-Dixon Line


A  F#m  A  F#m  E
F#m  A  F#m  E x3

The B flat minor chord in the chorus is incorret. Simply slide up a half step and play B minor instead. Probably just
a minor mispring...

Also, Mark has an almost bass voice. Most tenors will want to take this song up to the second fret. Also, play the A
as an open A on the 5th fret position and leave the top off the Fm.
