"I Am Australia" Lyrics

The Seekers

I came from the dreamtime
From the dusty red-soil plains
I am the ancient heart
The keeper of the flames
i Stood upon the rocky shore
I watched the tall ships come
For fourty thousand years i've been the first australian

I came upon the prison ships
Bound down by iron chains
I cleared the land
Endured the lash
And waited for the rains
I'm a settler
I'm a farmers wife
On a dry and barron run
A convict and a free man
I became Australian

Im a daughter of a digger
Who sought the mother load
The girl became a women
On the long and dusty road
Im a child of the depression
I saw the good time come
Im a bushy im a battler
I am australian

Chorus:

we are one
but we are many
and from all the lands on earth we come
we share a dream
and sing with one voice
i am, you are, we are australian

Im a teller of stories
Im a singer of songs
i am Albert namajera
and i paint the ghostly gums
im clancy on his horse
Ned kelly on the run
Im the one who waltzed matilda
I am australian

im the hot wind from the desert
im the black soil of the plain
im the mountains and the valleys
im the droughts and flooding rains
i am the rock
i am the sky
the rivers when they run
the spirit of this great land
i am australian

Chorus x2
