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
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

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
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
Am G F G Am G F G (lead played over these chords)
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.
But [Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]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
[G]Yes Sir, ready
[Am]I am [F]ready for the [Em]storm
I'm [G]ready for the [Am]storm
