1. I am Jeremiah Dixon, I am a Geordie boy,

    G                                     D           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                       D                 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       D             Am    D
Ch. We are sailing   to Philadelphia,    world away from the coaly Tyne,

 D               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                                D                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                                 D            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 has begun,

   D              G       C      Em                             D
 Another day will make it clear, why your stars should guide us here.

           G      -D         Em   C   -G       D             Am    D
Ch. We are sailing   to Philadelphia,    world away from the coaly Tyne,

 D               Em   C     Em             D         C        -D      G
 Sailing to Philadelphia       to draw the line, the Mason    - Dixon Line.

    C        -D      G
the Mason    - Dixon Line.

- Em - G - Em - D           - Em - G - Em - D  ....

Not bad, the basic harmony is there. To play it in key you would need a capo on the second fret. The first chord should be an Emadd11 (F#m11 w/capo).

Good job.

It is a tad too low in key, but that makes for interesting sounding vocals for baritones. C:
