Slim Dusty – We've Done Us Proud
Chorus:
                C
We've done us proud to come this far
                  F                 C
Down through the years to where we are

Side by side hand in hand
                 G
We've lived and died

For this great land
               C
We've done us proud

               C  F              C
I sailed the seas in search of freedom
                               G
I tilled the soil for seed to grow
             C                  F
I built the fences to hold the cattle
             C   G              C
I mined the earth in search of gold

                C   F           C
I sheared the sheep of golden fleeces
                                G
I formed the union to win fair pay
           C                     F
I built a railroad to cross the country
           C  G                 C
I fought a war for my countrys sake

Chorus

Change key to D

          D  G              D
I kept a home and raised a family
                                 A
I taught your children as if my own
            D                   G
I painted pictures to show the beauty
             D    A              D
I wrote the stories to keep the flame

Chorus (STAY IN D)

Change key to E

                 E
(We've done us proud) I worked the factory

(To come this far) I worked the land
              A
(two hundred years) I built the houses
              E
(To where we are) I baked the plan

(Side by Side) I drive the highway

(Hand in Hand) I right the wrong
                  B
(We've lived and died) I reach for glory

(For this great land) I sing the songs
               E
We've done us proud

(To come this far) To come this far
               A
(Two hundred years) Two hundred years
              E
(To where we are) To where we are

(Side by side) Side by side

(Hand in Hand) Hand in Hand
                  B
(We've lived and died) We've lived and died

(For this great land) For this great land
                E
We've done us proud
