CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED
"LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER"
GARAGE

I have seen this tabbed on several places but something never sounded exactly right.  
other day I stood in the first row of a Ragweed show and watched Cody to figure out what 
was doing different.  Here is what I think I saw him do.  Has anyone tabbed the intro?

Chords Used

Am  C  G  Asus2 (not sure if that is the correct name but it is the same as the Am but 
your finger on the B string) and F

Capo 4th fret

Am
A longhaired man came to my door
        C
Wearin' roman sandles carryin' a golden sword
        G                             Am  Asus2
He said come with me and I'll take ya higher
Am
We soared out of the atmosphere
       C
On his magic carpet he let me steer
        G                                  Am
He said take the reins son and I'll let ya fly'er
Am
We escalated through a thick of clouds
        C
And our only thought was not comin' down
            G
Towards the amber glow
                      Am  Asus2
I started to feel the fire
Am
There was a unicorn with a neon horn
          C
Wearin' a velvet saddle that was slightly worn
  G                              Am  Asus2
I pulled my mystic rug right up beside'er
Am
I sat down on a floatin' stool
    C
She knelt her head and produce a jewel
      G                           Am  Asus2 Am
And I smiled and asked if I could ride'er

CHORUS

F     G                  Am Asus2 Am
And I saw the Lighthouse Keeper
F          G                    Am  Asus2 Am
His hollow eyes that pierced my soul
F            G                   Am  Asus2 Am
He said that Im just a desperate seeker
C             G              Am
Searching for what I did not know


Am
On a Pegasus I was flying free
C
careless lost over a purple sea
G                                         Am  Asus2
When I came across this lonesome fortune teller
Am
She gazed into her crystal ball
C
And I saw that giant gavel fall
G                                Am  Asus2
She asked if I could be her pall bearer
Am
And I heard that gypsy prophesy
C
Of the tearin' flesh and a mother's cry
G                                             Am  Asus2
and the crimson flow of blood that would run forever
Am
We stood before the kings and queens
C
And the hood man with the guillotine
G                                    Am  Asus2
And prepared to me the eternal tax collector
Am
Then I dined down there with an aristocrat
C
On his balcony with a welcome mat
G                                                  Am  Asus2 Am
And he laughed and drank all the wine from his cellar

REPEAT CHORUS

During the Solo at the end play this 3 times
Am  C  G  Am Asus2
Am  C  G  Am Asus2
Am  F  G  Am Asus2
Am  F  G  Am Asus2
Am  F  G  Am Asus2
Am  C  G  Am

lighthouse keeper is a song Cross Canadian Ragweed Covered on their album Garage. It is actually a Scott Copeland song from the album dig your deal.. chances are if you like this song it is the lyrics that grab you... trust me... i love ccr but scott copelands version is MUCH MUCH MUCh better!!!! someone needs to put the tabs down under scott copelands name as well for people like me looking for his tabs... if anyone wants chords or tabs of his e mail me at mcintire.tim@gmail.com ill talk to him and get the chords. if i didnt suck at guitar i would have them all tabbed out... also, flat rock by mike mcclure... was scotts song... mike wrote 1 line to that song.. and "hunter" a song about hunter s thompson, recorded by Casey Donahew will have tabs floating around soon... finally scott is as of now #1 requested and played w his song rebel soul on the ranch... which means those of you who read this in short time will know who this musician is... he is one of the greatest songwriters alive. an amazing musician with a great sound.

oops. i commented twice. ill ask scott about the intro... it was performed by mike mcclure as was lead guitar on the song.... as for the chords.. ill go directly to him and get them, comment back and if there was anything wrong you will have the perfect chord transgression throughout the sontg... ccr did not change the structure... just made it more alternative.. more crunchy w more reverb... to hear scotts version go to www.myspace.com/scottcopelandthesidetracks
