Lighthouse (live) -- Antje Duvekot
Tabbed by ear by Travis Hussey (mr_flycstr@yahoo.com)

Capo I

You, you're not the first to            A
Ask, and probably not the               D
Last, and I don't expect you            E
To understand                           A-E

Why I stayed upon that                  A
Rock, after the birds had               D
Gone and all of the waves turned        E
To sand                                 A-E

But I am a lighthouse in a              F#m-E
Desert and I stand alone                D-E
I dream of an ocean that was            F#m-E
Here a long time ago and I              D-E
Remember his cool waters and I still    B7-E
Glow                                    A

Well these days, the sunlight has bleached my   A
Paint and the moonlight has made it             D
Plain that nobody needs me to                   E
Call them home                                  A-E

But I swear there was a time when        A
I would shine for him through the        D
Night, well he was the only              E
Ocean -- that I have known               A-E

And I am a lighthouse in a               F#m-E
Desert and I stand alone                 D-E
I dream of an ocean that was             F#m-E
Here a long time ago and I               D-E
Remember his cool waters and I still     B7-E
Glow                                     A

Now my lantern bears a crack and I       D*
Know he will not be back but             F#m*
I will leave the light on                D*
Forever                                  Fmaj7-6 (xx3230)

'Cause I am a lighthouse in a            F#m-E
Desert and I stand alone                 D-E
I dream of an ocean that was             F#m-E
Here a long time ago and I               D-E
Remember his cool water, I               B7-E
Remember his cool water, I               B7-E
Remember his cool water, and I still     B7-E
Glow                                     A*
