Hello there all, I am new to this site but I think it is completely brilliant! I am having a bit of a problem remembering Dougie Maclean's excellent "Ready for the Storm" and as someone has my only recording on permanent loan I would be really grateful if someone could post it for me.

Hope I can return the favour in the future

Thanks

READY FOR THE STORM - Dougie MacLean
(Dougie tunes his guitar C G C G C D#, capo at 5th fret)

Em
Oh, the waves crash in and the tide pulls out.
Em7
It's an angry sea but there is no doubt
Em6
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
Em7
To warn the lonely sailor.

And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones to the sailor's soul
Till there's nothing left that he can hold
Except the rolling ocean.

CHORUS
------------Em-----------------B7
But I am ready for the storm, yes, sir, ready.
Em---C-------------B7-------------------Em
I am ready for the storm, ready for the storm.

Give me mercy for my dreams, for every confrontation seems
To tell me what it means to be this lonely sailor,
But when the sky begins to clear, and the sun it melts away my fear,
I'll cry a silent weary tear for those that need to love me.

But distance it no is no real friend, and time it takes its time,
But you will find that in the end it brings you me, the lonely sailor,
But when you take me by your side you love me warm, you love me,
And I should have realized I had no reasons to be frightened.

Let's try a clearer chord placement for the chorus:

chorus:
BUT (Em)I AM READY FOR THE (B7)STORM, YES SIR READY
(Em)I AM (C)READY FOR THE (B7)STORM, READY FOR THE (Em)STORM
