Artist : Julia Jacklin
Song : Motherland

Intro : G  Am Am7 Am   C  G (x2)

Verse 1 : 
           G
These new lines on my face
            G
Spell out "girl pick up your pace
        Am                             D
If you want to stay true to what your younger self would do"

Verse 2 : 
          G
And this kink in my walk
          G
Makes me focus when I talk
      Am
If I can't trust my feet
              D/A                D7
Then it's my tongue I choose to keep

Verse 3 : 
             G
And I walk slow so I can read
        G
Let my head fall, my hips lead
            Am
Why'd you write the words so small?
         D         
Did you fool me, are they words at all?

Verse 4 : 
        G     
Or are you pulling down the veil
          G  
Keeping grounded as you set my sail?
        Am
By the time I pull it off
       D
All my innocence is lost

Verse 5 : 
            Am
And oh I'm good, I think I'm good
            Fmaj7 
Will I be great, will I be great?
       C                            G
Is it money I wanna make or is it sweet love for his sake?

Verse 6 : 
               G
And these new parts I now need
            G
To help me function, help me feed
            Am
They are beyond my modest earnings
        D
Oh the girls they keep turning up the heat
   G
As if it's cold
         C
But I'm hot, too hot to hold
Am                                  D   
I'll burn a hole right through the hull

Chorus : 
            Am
When will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
    C
Oh water can't revive me
        G
I need dirt in my hand
       Am
Will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
         C
Oh the ground will give me something
    D            Dsus4 G
I know that it can

Interlude : G   Am Am7 Am   C   G

Verse 7 : 
             G
See I have charm and I have sight
         G
And I always try and do what's right
            Am
But I have faults you know it's true
             D                D7
Especially when it comes to treating you well

Verse 8 : 
G                         G
I will work when all my thoughts are mine again
           Am                              D   
See I was sure at the start, turns out I tried too hard
            Am
And oh I'm good, I think I'm good
            Fmaj7 
Will I be great, will I be great?
       C                            G               
Is it money I wanna make or is it sweet love 
     D      D7
for his sake?

Chorus : 
            Am
When will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
    C
Oh water can't revive me
        G
I need dirt in my hand
       Am
Will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
         C
Oh the ground will give me something
    D            Dsus4 G
I know that it can

Outro : G   Am Am7 Am   C   G
