  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
  C                               F           G          Am F
I stood upon the rocky shores, I watched the tall ships come.
    C              Dm                    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
      C                                   F       G      Am F
I'm a settler, I'm a farmer's wife, On a dry and barren run,
  C               Dm            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.
      C                           F       G          Am F
I'm a child of the Depression, I saw the good times come,
      C              Dm        F      G   C
I'm a bushie, I'm a battler, I am Australian.


      C                F C
We are one, but we are many,
C        Am      G                 C
And from all the lands on earth we come.
              C                   F   C
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice,
 F G   Am  G       F      G   C
I am, you are, We are Australian

      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.
    C                            F     G      Am F
I'm Clancy on his horse, I'm Ned Kelly on the run.
        C               Dm         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 planes.
        Am                                 F           G        C
I'm the mountains and the valleys, I'm the drought and flooding rains.
  C                              F      G         Am  F
I am the rock, I am the sky, the rivers when they run,
    C             Dm            F       G    C
The spirt of this great land, I am Australian

      C                F C
We are one, but we are many,
C        Am      G                 C
And from all the lands on earth we come.
              C                   F   C
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice,
 F G   Am  G       F      G   C
I am, you are, We are Australian

      C                F C
We are one, but we are many,
C        Am      G                 C
And from all the lands on earth we come.
              C                   F   C
We'll share a dream and sing with one voice,
 F G   Am  G       F      G   C
I am, you are, We are Australian

F G   Am  G          F       G  C
I am, you are... We are Australian.

Very well done. I love the 1994 AFL Grand Final live version of this song.

Yes that's a good version. My favourite is the 1993 Reunion Celebration performance. Just a great song.
