 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
