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.

This is my first submission, so any suggestions or improvements are appreciated.

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

(INTRO)

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
