C F A# D# G C
Dancing In The Minefields
Andrew Peterson

Intro : C Am F (x2)

Verse 1 :

     C                          Am            F
Well I was 19, you were 21, the year we got engaged
C                                           Am         F
Everyone said we were much too young, but we did it anyway
G                    Am             C/E               F
We got the rings for 40 each from a pawnshop down the road
   G                 Am                C/E      F
We said our vows and took the leap now 15 years ago


Chorus 1 :
        C              Am G F
We went dancing in the minefields
        C              Am G F
We went sailing in the storms
           C              Am
And it was harder than we dreamed
    G   F
But I believe that’s what the promise is for

Gsus4 G F                               Gsus4 G
         (That’s what the promise is for)

Interlude 1 : C Am F

Verse 2 :
        C
Well “I do” are the two most famous last words
      Am      G      F
The beginning of the end
       C                                          Am         G    F
But to lose your life for another I’ve heard is a good place to begin
           G           Am                   C/E               F
‘Cause the only way to find your life is to lay your own life down
    G                 Am                 C/E               F
And I believe it’s an easy price for the life that we have found


Chorus 1 :
        C              Am G F
We went dancing in the minefields
        C              Am G F
We went sailing in the storms
           C              Am
And it was harder than we dreamed
    G   F
But I believe that’s what the promise is for

Gsus4 G F                               Gsus4 G
         (That’s what the promise is for)

Bridge :
          Am         F/A
So when I lose my way, find me
       Am               F/A
When I lose loves chains, bind me
       C             F/A          C/E           F
At the end of all my faith to the end of all my days
       Am            F/A
When I forget my name, remind me

Interlude 2 : C Am F

Verse 3 :
       C
‘Cause we bear the light of the Son of man
           Am      G       F
So there’s nothing left to fear

        C                                          Am      G    F
So I’ll walk with you in the shadow lands till the shadows disappear
          G               Am               C/E          F
‘Cause He promised not to leave us and His promises are true
          G            Am         C/E          F
So in the face of this chaos, baby I can dance with you


Chorus 2 :
            C              Am G F               C              Am G F
So let’s go dancing in the minefields, let’s go sailing in the storms
             C              Am G F          C                Am G F
Oh, let’s go dancing in the minefields, and kicking down the doors
             C              Am G F          C              Am G F
Oh, let’s go dancing in the minefields, and sailing in the storms
            C              Am
Oh, this is harder than we dreamed
    G   F                                C
But I believe that’s what the promise is for
Am                F
  That’s what the promise is for

If you leave it in standard tuning and just capo it up a half step it works - that's how andrew plays it. great job otherwise- the chords all seem right. :)
