  (Flat-pick lightly for the first verse
   and then strum for the later verses)

  the waves crash in and the tide rolls out

           D2					      Cmaj7
  it's an angry sea, but there is no doubt that the lighthouse

  will keep shining out, to warn a lonely sailor

  the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold, 

  through the sailor's bones through the sailor's soul,

  till there's nothing left that he can hold,
  except a rolling ocean 

                Em   Cmaj7          D2   		
		I am ready for the storm

                              Em   Cmaj7          D2
		yes sir ready I am ready for the storm

		I'm ready for the storm
  oh give me mercy for my dreams, cause every confrontation 
  seems to tell me what it really means to be this lonely sailor,
  and when the sky begins to clear, the sun it melts away my fear
  and I cry a silent weary tear for those who mean to love me

  Bridge:	Cmaj7  D2  C2  D2  (2x)

  the distance it is no real friend and 
  time will take its time and you will
  find that in the end it brings you me this lonely sailor,
  and when you take me
  by the hand, you love me Lord, you love me and 
  I should have realized I had no reasons to be frightened  

  (Play the intro then end with this ending and the E chord 
  instead of the Em.)

This is an awesome song, and it had already been tabbed but I 
wanted to make some corrections, I hope everything is clear. 
Anything played by Rich is incredible, and this is one of my favorites.
