My Own Eyes (song For Australia) Lyrics

My Own Eyes (Xavier Rudd)

C / G / Am F / C G / (capo 1)

Intro: C C C C C C C C

C G
Since I was just a little boy, I’ve been wondering why
Am F C G
This great old culture we should be helping to heal is
so often pushed aside
C G
So many children taken away, So much abuse and rape.
Am F C G
When will it be high priority to educate and make some
real change?

I’ve seen it in communities,so many that it’s hard to
believe
Elders speaking wisdom, far beyond what they choose to
teach in his-tory
And young hearts just drinking it away,
understanding why their culture was so shamed
Waiting for a reason, what was taken off, still hasn’t
been replaced

C G Am F
My own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did I did,
yes I did. That’s why
C G C
I know this is true (yeah it’s true).

(Inst) C C C C C C C C

I’ve seen it down in sacred Tassie,
where they’re cutting all those big old trees
Forty-four football fields a day is what they clear
and ain’t that hard to believe?
And all for the economy, raping country that our
children won’t see
And even Peter Garrett is lying down when we thought
that he might be the key.

Yeah well my own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did
I did, yeah I did, that’s why I know this is true.
Yeah well my own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did
I did, yeah I did, that’s why I know this is true.
(Yeah it’s true).

(Inst) C C C C

I’ve seen it up in Nhulunbuy, bringing alcohol to
sacred soil.
A place still thriving with language and culture by
now,
should just f**ken’ be preserved.
People climbing up on Uluru, behind those fences are
the people who know
Whoa and Qantas is still flying to Ayers Rock
despite years and years of truth.

Yeah well my own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did
I did, yeah I did, that’s why I know this is true.
Yeah well my own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did
I did, yeah I did, that’s why I know this is true.
People it’s true.

(Inst) C C C C C G Am F (X4)

Whoh and I’ve seen it in the Kimberley; part of the key
to human history.
See there’s rock art as old as the great ice age,
still there for the world to see.
But demolish it for industry. We’ll create so many jobs
you see.
In a country so wealthy, still burning coal, for
electricity.

Ohh my own eyes. I saw it with my own eyes. I did I
did, yeah I did.
That’s why I know this is true (yeah it’s true).

(Inst) C C C C C C C C

Same old things we always hear, lies to fill the
pockets of the rich.
No respect for culture, the environment, our animals,
our future
or just the air we breathe.

C G Am F
Mmmmm. Shame, shame, shame, shame, shame shame. Oh it’s
a shame.

See our own eyes; we’ve seen this with our own eyes.
For years we did, for centuries we did,
that’s why we know this is true.
Ohh my own eyes; I saw it with my own eyes. I did I
did, yeah I did,
that’s why I know this is true.
Aye it’s true.
