[Verse]

  C                                  F              C
I came from the dream-time, From the dusty red-soil plains
                 Am         F      G      C
I am the ancient heart, The keeper of the flame
                                 F           G          Am
I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come.
    C                                   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
I'm a settler, I'm a farmer's wife, On a dry and barren run,
  C                             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
I'm a child of the Depression, I saw the good times come,
      C                        F      G   C
I'm a bushie, I'm a battler, I am Australian.


[Chorus]

C  C   C               F C
We are one, but we are many,
C   Em   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       C       G   C
"I am, you are, we are Australian"


[Verse]

      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
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run,
        C                          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
I am the rock, I am the sky, The rivers when they run,
    C                            F      G   C
The spirit of this great land, I am Australian.


[Chorus]

C  C   C               F C
We are one, but we are many,
C   Em   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       C       G   C
"I am, you are, we are Australian"

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