"The Lighthouse's Tale"

Standard tuning

Intro:   Em - GD

       Em           G                          D
I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves. 
         Em            G                         D
I keep my lamp lit, to warn the sailors on their way. 
           Em      G                           D
I'll tell a story, paint you a picture from my past. 
       Em           G                       D
I was so happy, but joy in this life seldom lasts. 
        Em         G                           D
I had a keeper, he helped me warn the ships at sea. 
          Em             G                             D
We had grown closer, 'till his joy meant everything to me. 
           Em          G                              D
And he was to marry, a girl who shone with beauty and light. 
             Em                G                                D
And they loved each other, and with me watched the sunsets into night. 


        C                     Bm       Bb           C    D
And the waves crashing around me, the sand slips out to sea. 
        C                      Bm               Em   F#m    G    A        D
And the winds that blow remind me, of what has been,          and what can never be. 

Instrumental break: EmGD

             Em           G                           D
She'd had to leave us, my keeper he prayed for a safe return. 
             Em              G                             D
But when the night came, the weather to a raging storm had turned. 
           Em                   G                                    D
He watched her ship fight, but in vain against the wild and terrible wave. 
          Em           G                                  D
In me so helpless, as dashed against the rock she met her end. 


           Em             G                                 D
Then on the next day, my keeper found her washed up on the SHORE. 
            Em               G                             D
He kissed her cold face, that they'd be together soon he'd swore. 
          Em        G                             D
I saw him crying, watched as he buried her in the sand. 
          Em                      G                        D
And then he climbed my tower, and off of the edge of me he ran. 


       Em          G                            D
I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves. 
              Em              G                          D
And though I am empty, I still warn the sailors on their way.
