Lighthouse   James Taylor

Lighthouse  James Taylor






 


 James Taylor 1975


 


 Off the coast of Africa, [ D A4 A ]


 bound for South America [ Bm F#m7 ]


 A world away from here [ G A4 A ]


 Is a ship that sails the sea [ D A4 A ]


 Is a man who's just like me [ Bm F#m7 ]


 And I wish that I was there [ G A G/D D A/D ]


 


 I'm a lonely lighthouse-not a ship out in the night [ D A/D C/D G ]


 I'm watching the sea [ A Bm ]


 She's come half-way round the world to see the light [ D A/D C/D G ]


 and to stay away from me [ A7sus4 A7 G/D D A/D ]


 There is a shipwreck lying at my feet [ Bm A G, D A/D G ]


 Some weary refugee from the rolling deep [ Bm A G/D D A/D ]


 Ah, would you lose it all and fall for me? [ Bm F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7 E7 ]


 


 Couldn't we shine? [ G/D ]


 I'm rolling all my golden moments into one [ D A/D C/D ]


 Like to shine like the sun for one more summer day [ G/D D A/D C/D ]


 Shine like a lighthouse for one last summer night [ G/D D A/D C/D ]


 Flashing on, flashing on, fading away [ G/D D A/D C/D ]


 [ G/D ] 


 


 Well if you feel lost and lonely and don't know where to go [ D A/D C/D G


 ]


 and you hear this song on the radio [ A Bm ]


 Or even if you're feeling healthy and strong [ D A/D C/D G ]


 you might like to sing along [ A7sus4 A7 G/D D A/D ]


 But just because I might be standing here [ Bm A G, D A/D G ]


 That don't mean I won't be wrong this time [ Bm A G/D D A/D ]


 You could follow me and lose your mind [ Bm F#7sus4 F#7 Bm7 E7 ]


 (repeat Chorus)


 


 Off the coast of Africa, [ D A4 A ]


 bound for South America [ Bm F#m7 ]


 A world away from here [ G A4 A ]


 Is a ship that sails the sea [ D A4 A ]


 Is a man who's just like me [ Bm F#m7 ]


 And I wish that I was there [ G A ||: G/D D A/D C/D :|| ]
