Kathy Mattea – Ready for the Storm

—–>(Capo 5)<—–

(verse 1)
Am
Oh, the waves crash in and the tide pulls out,
G
It’s an angry sea but there is no doubt,
F
That the lighthouse will keep shinin’ out,
G
To warn the lonely sailor,
Am
The lightnin’ strikes and the wind cuts cold,
G
Through the sailor’s bones to the sailor’s soul,
F
Till there’s nothing left that he can hold,
G
Except the rolling ocean,

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

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

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

(lead – Am – G – F – G – Am – G – F – G)

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

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