Ready For The Storm  Kathy Mattea

  ----->(Capo 5)<-----



Oh, the [Am]waves crash in and the tide pulls out,
It's an [G]angry sea but there is no doubt,
That the [F]lighthouse will keep shinin' out,
To [G]warn the lonely sailor,
The [Am]lightnin' strikes and the wind cuts cold,
Through the [G]sailor's bones to the sailor's soul,
Till there's [F]nothing left that he can hold,
Ex[G]cept the rolling ocean,
(chorus)
But [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
[G]Yes Sir, ready, [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm,


(verse 2)
Oh, [Am]give me mercy for my dreams,
'Cause [G]every confrontation seems,
To [F]tell me what it really means,
To [G]be this lonely sailor,
And [Am]when you take me by your side,
You [G]love me warm, you love me,
And I [F]  should have realized,
I had no [G]reasons to be frightened,


(chorus)
But [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
[G]Yes Sir, ready, [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm,
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm,


(lead - Am - G - F - G - Am - G - F - G)


(verse 3)
The [Am]distance it is no real friend
And [G]time will take its time
And you will [F]find that in the end
It brings you [G]me, the lonely sailor
And [Am]when the sky begins to clear
The [G]sun it melts away my fear
I'll [F]  cry a silent weary tear
For [G]those that need to love me.


(chorus)
But [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
[G]Yes Sir, ready, [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm,
[G]Yes Sir, ready, [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
[G]Yes Sir, ready, [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm,
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm
