KEEPERS LYRICS AND GUITAR CHORDS 4/4 (Nick Keir)McCalmans’ original version in C# major with a capo on the 1st fret.

Chorus
(C)Ardnamurchan, (F)Loch Indaal, (G)Rattray Head The (C)Isle of (F)May(C)
Not an eye to (F)watch the sea from (G)Eileann Glas or (C)Copinsay
(G)Still they (F)guard the (C)shore.
Fair Isle North and Skerry(F)vore -G

The (C)empty (F)room, the (G)untrod (C)stairway
The only (F)sound, the (C)roaring (G)sea
The tables and the (C)chairs wait (F)still for (C)one last (Am)supper(F)
As the (C)mist closes (G)in un(C)seen –F-G

Chorus
Proud (C)men they (F)were who (G)manned the (C)beacon,
A sense of (F)worth was (C)in their (G)mind
Maybe they're on (C)shore now, (F)aye, but (C)still on (Am)look-out(F)
As the (C)doors rattle in an (G)unsensed (C)wind. –F-G

Chorus
And (F)still at night, I (G)hear the fog horn (C)sweep across the (F)seas,
I (G)wonder if old lighthouse keepers (C)hear it
And re(Am)member (C)nights like (G)these....

Hard (C)lives they (F)had, and (G)near to (C)danger
Long lonely (F)months they'd (C)have their (G)fill
Ah but if I (C)were some (F)lonely (C)storm bound (Am)sailor,(F)
I'd wish the (C)keepers were (G)watching (C)still –F-G
Chorus twice
Final C-chord
