The song is in 3/4 time, so the easiest way to play it is to play the bass note 
followed by two down strokes.  The verse sections are a repeat of the intro with 
each chord getting two measures.  The progression and timing vary at the bridge, 
so listen to the song to get it down.
 

[Intro]
F C Dm C       
F C Dm Am

[Verse 1]
F                     C
I'm just a man but I know that I'm damned
         Dm                       C                  
All the dead seem to know where I am
F                    C
Till it began on the night of my birth
         Dm                   Am
Will be done in a turn of the earth

F                       C
Lie where I land let my bones turn to sand
      Dm                     C
I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave it
F                 C
Every eye on the coast ever more
      Dm                        Am
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore

[Instrumental]
F C Dm C       
F C Dm Am

[Verse 2]
Under the waves and the earth of an age
Lie a thousand old northerner's graves
Deep in the night when the moon's glowing bright
They come rising up into the light
Die if I must let my bones turn to dust
I'm the Lord of the lake and I don't want to leave it
All who sail off the coast ever more
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore

[Bridge]

C Dm Am (x2)

C                         Dm          Am
I'm goin' away for a long time
C                         Dm          Am
I'm goin' away for a long time

[Verse 3]
Lie where I land let my bones turn to sand
I was born on the lake and I don't want to leave it
Every eye on the coast ever more
Will remember the sight of the ghost on the shore

Die if I must let my bones turn to dust
I'm the lord of the lake and I don't want to leave it
All who sail off the coast ever more
Will remember the tale of the ghost on the shore

[Bridge/Outro]
I'm goin' away for a long time
