                             COURAGEOUS - Casting Crowns
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Dustin
Email: djhunsin@gmail.com

Forward: This is my first guitar tab.
Casting Crowns did a video explaining how they play this song, but it wasn't very easy to follow,
so I decided to sit down and tab it out (link to their video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDmkIXrthwE).
As explained in the video, the track version is played in A and the live version in Ab.
However, in the video they used the key of G, which is what I have tabbed out below.
For this reason, playing this tab alongside the studio version of the song won't sound the same.

Additionally, I'm not sure if the chord names are technically correct,
but for simplicity of reference I call them by the names below.
Please let me know if I need to make any corrections. Enjoy!

[Intro]
                   Em
We were made to be courageous
                         C
We were made to lead the way
                G
We could be the generation
                        D (Let Ring)
That finally breaks the chains
                   C   G   Em  D
We were made to be courageous
                   C   G    D (Let Ring)
We were made to be courageous


[1st Verse]
                        Em
We were warriors on the front lines
             C
Standing, unafraid
                              G
But now we're watchers on the sidelines
                        D
While our families slip away
                      Em
Where are you, men of courage?
                          C
You were made for so much more
                        G
Let the pounding of our hearts cry
                  D
We will serve the Lord


[Chorus]
                   C
We were made to be courageous
    G                     D
And we're taking back the fight
                   C
We were made to be courageous
       Em             G
And it starts with us tonight
         C              G
The only way we'll ever stand
          Em                D
Is on our knees with lifted hands
        C     G  Em  D
Make us courageous
              C     G    D
Lord, make us courageous


[2nd Verse]
            Em
This is our resolution
                  C
Our answer to the call
                           G
We will love our wives and children
                      D
We refuse to let them fall
                     Em
We will reignite the passion
                    C
That we buried deep inside
                        G
May the watchers become warriors
                   D
Let the men of God arise


[Chorus]
                   C
We were made to be courageous
    G                     D
And we're taking back the fight
                   C
We were made to be courageous
       Em             G
And it starts with us tonight
         C              G
The only way we'll ever stand
          Em                D
Is on our knees with lifted hands
        C     G  Em  D
Make us courageous
              C     G    D
Lord, make us courageous


[Bridge]

C  G  D


[Round]

(Seek justice
Love mercy
Walk humbly with your God)
       C          G
In the war of the mind
       Em      D
I will make my stand
       C             G
In the battle of the heart
        Em            D
And the battle of the hand
       C          G
In the war of the mind
       Em      D
I will make my stand
       C             G
In the battle of the heart
        D (Let Ring)
And the battle of the hand


[Chorus]
                   C
We were made to be courageous
    G                     D
And we're taking back the fight
                   C
We were made to be courageous
       Em             G
And it starts with us tonight
         C              G
The only way we'll ever stand
          Em                D
Is on our knees with lifted hands
        C     G  Em  D
Make us courageous
              C     G    D
Lord, make us courageous

I think the D should be a Dsus4, but other than that good job.

The Original has it on Capo 2

Courageous Verse 3 is Dead on Original from the song track - I don't know why it only has 3 votes.

I play and sing it and it is the same as the track. This one is too low for me and not original.

Chords are right but you need to add your 3rd and 4th finger on the 3rd fret strings High E and B.
