"The Rope" By Martina McBride
Written By: Stephanie Davis
Album: The Time Has Come

Capo 2nd Fret


Intro: A,   A,   A,   A

  A        A       E      D    A
In Waters calm I sailed from shore
  D                  E
To see what I might see
  A                 E   D   A
And having never sailed before
  D            E
I drifted aimlessly
      D         E              A
A warm breeze rocked my boat until
   D             A
In slumber I fell sound
   A                   E    D     A
But woke to find the light grown dim
   D                E        A      A      A
And dark clouds gathering 'round

  A                 E     D    A
In haste I worked at turning back
   D         A          E
But now the wind blew wrong
   A                      E   D    A
And when the night came cold and black
   D               A     E
My strength was almost gone
     E           D               A
But with one last small thread of hope
  D          A      E
I bowed my head to pray
     A                  E   D   A
Then through the dark I saw a rope
    D             E     A
And heard a calm voice say


Chorus:
  A        A
Grab the rope
  D        A
Hold it tight
  A        A
In the distance
  E        E
Shines a light
  A        A
Neither fear
  D        A
Nor feel alone
  A        A
There is one
    E     D      A         A
Who'll lead you home


  A                   E     D     A
I heard my heart beat loud and fast
  D        A      E
But did as I was told
  A                  E   D   A
And with the rosey dawn at last
  D         A     E
Dry land I did behold
  E               D            A
I kissed the sandy banks and swore
  D            A         E
My sailing days were through
  A                 E     D    A
But should I ever stray from shore
  E         D       A
I know now what to do


Chorus:
 A        A
Grab the rope
 D        A
Hold it tight
 A        A
In the distance
 E        E
Shines a light
 A        A
Neither fear
 D        A
Nor feel alone
 A        A
There is one
    E      D     A
Who'll lead you home

(Repeat Chorus  until song fades)
