Lighthouse
James Taylor  1975

Off the coast of Africa,  [ D A4 A ]
bound for South America [ Bm F#m7 ]
A world away from here [ G A4 A ]
Is a ship that sails the sea [ D A4 A ]
Is a man who's just like me [ Bm F#m7 ]
And I wish that I was there [ G A G/D D A/D ]

I'm a lonely lighthouse-not a ship out in the night [ D A/D C/D G ]
I'm watching the sea [ A Bm ]
She's come half-way round the world to see the light [ D A/D C/D G ]
and to stay away from me [ A7sus4 A7 G/D D A/D ]
There is A shipwreck lying at my feet [ Bm A G, D A/D G ]
Some weary refugee from the rolling deep [ Bm A G/D D A/D ]
Ah, would you lose it all and fall for me? [ Bm F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7 E7 ]

Couldn't we shine? [ G/D ]
I'm rolling all my golden moments into one [ D A/D C/D ]
Like to shine like the sun for one more summer day [ G/D D A/D C/D ]
Shine like a lighthouse for one last summer night [ G/D D A/D C/D ]
Flashing on, flashing on, fading away [ G/D D A/D C/D ]
[ G/D ]

Well if you feel lost and lonely and don't know where to go [ D A/D C/D G
]
and you hear this song on the radio [ A Bm ]
Or even if you're feeling healthy and strong [ D A/D C/D G ]
you might like to sing along [ A7sus4 A7 G/D D A/D ]
But just because I might be standing here [ Bm A G, D A/D G ]
That don't mean I won't be wrong this time [ Bm A G/D D A/D ]
You could follow me and lose your mind [ Bm F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7 E7 ]
(repeat Chorus)

Off the coast of Africa,  [ D A4 A ]
bound for South America [ Bm F#m7 ]
A world away from here [ G A4 A ]
Is a ship that sails the sea [ D A4 A ]
Is a man who's just like me [ Bm F#m7 ]
And I wish that I was there [ G A ||: G/D D A/D C/D :|| ]
