Burn the Ships
Steven Curtis Chapman

Capo 2

[Intro]
| D D A G | (2x)
| G | A | Bm | (4x)

[Verse 1]
G       A        Bm   G         A         Bm
In the spring of 1519 a Spanish fleet set sail
G      A        Bm           C
Cortez told his sailors this mission must not fail
       G       A        Bm     G           A          Bm
On the eastern shore of Mexico they landed with great dreams
        G         A      Bm        C
But the hardships of the new world made them restless and weak
G       A    Bm                   G           A       D
Quietly they whispered, lets sail back to the life we knew
Em              F#m                G
But the one who led them there was saying

[Chorus]
         D      G             Bm
Burn the ships, we're here to stay
           Em              F#m
There's no way we could go back
               G                A
Now that we've come this far by faith
          D     G              Em          Em
Burn the ships, we've past the point of no return
            F#m
Our life is here
   G       A     D     G       D      G   G
So let the ships burn, Let ‘em burn

[Verse 2]
G                A   Bm           G         A         Bm
In the spring of new beginnings a searching heart set sail
G       A     Bm             C
Looking for a new life and a love that would not fail
       G         A         Bm       G      A          Bm
On the shores of grace and mercy we landed with great joy
       G   A      Bm         C
But an ene-my was waiting to steal, kill and dest-roy
    G     A     Bm           G           A        D
And quiet-ly he whispers, go back to the life you knew
Em              F#m                G
But the one who led us here is saying

[Chorus]
         D      G             Bm
Burn the ships, we're here to stay
           Em              F#m
There's no way we could go back
               G                A
Now that we've come this far by faith
          D     G              Em          Em
Burn the ships, we've past the point of no return
            F#m
Our life is here
   G       A     D
So let the ships burn
D
Nobody said it would be easy
Em              F#m
But the one who brought us here
Bb               C        D      
Is never gonna leave us alone

[Instrumental]
G  D  G  D  G  G  G  G

[Chorus]
         D      G             Bm
Burn the ships, we're here to stay
           Em              F#m
There's no way we could go back
               G                A
Now that we've come this far by faith
          D     G              Em          Em
Burn the ships, we've past the point of no return
            F#m
Our life is here
   G       A     D     G             Bm
So let the ships burn, we're here to stay
           Em              F#m
There's no way we could go back
               G                A
Now that we've come this far by faith
          D     G              Em          Em
Burn the ships, we've past the point of no return
            F#m
Our life is here
   G       A     D
So let the ships burn,
   G       A     D
So let the ships burn,
G        D
Let them burn
G       A     D   G  D
Let the ships burn
