       Em          G                           D(add9)
I am a Lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves.
          Em           G                         D(add9)
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way.
            Em     G                        D(add9)
I'll tell a story; paint you a picture from my past.
       Em           G                   D(add9)
I was so happy, but joy in this life seldom lasts.

        Em      G                             D(add9)
I had a keeper. He helped me warn the ships at sea.
       Em             G                              D(add9)
We had grown closer, 'til his joy meant everything to me.
          Em      G                             D(add9)
He was to marry a girl who shown with beauty and light.
           Em              G                               D(add9)
They loved each other, and with me watched the sunsets into nights.

Chorus:
(There's a bit of picking in the chorus. Listen to the song to get it)
        C               Bm            Bb         C      D(add9)
And the waves crashing around me, The sand slips out to sea,  
        C                 Bm                  Em   F#m   G
And the winds that blow remind me of what has been, 
             A     D(add9)
and what can never be.

            Em           G                           D(add9)
She'd had to leave us. My keeper, he prayed for a safe return,
             Em              G                           D(add9)   C
But when the night came, the weather to a raging storm had turned.
           Em                    G                             D(add9)
He watched her ship fight, but in vain against the wild and terrible wind,
         Em            G                                 D(add9)
In me so helpless, was dashed against the rocks she met her end.

Chorus:
        C               Bm            Bb         C      D 
And the waves crashing around me, The sand slips out to sea,  
        C                 Bm                  Em   F#m   G
And the winds that blow remind me of what has been, 
             A    (This chorus you play this riff)
and what can never be.

Then on the next   day,                my keeper found her washed up on

        Em        G                           D(add9)
I saw him crying, watched as he buried her in the sand,
                Em            G                  D(add9)
Then he climbed my tower, and off the edge of me he ran.

        C               Bm            Bb         C      D(add9)
And the waves crashing around me, The sand slips out to sea,  
        C                 Bm                  Em   F#m   G
And the winds that blow remind me of what has been, 
             A    (Same as last chorus)
and what can never be.
