Sailing To Philadelphia
Capo 2

[Intro]
    Em   G   Em   D


[Verse]
            Em
   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.

[Verse 2]
          Em
   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.

[Solo]
Em   G   Em   D

[Verse 3]
            Em
   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.

[Verse 4]
            Em
   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

[Outro]
  Em   G   Em   D             Em   G   Em   D
