                Anchored in Love - The Carter Family
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my attempt at The Carter Family's "Anchored in Love" as played on track 8 
of Anchored in Love.
Both Ma and Sara play guitar on this one, with Ma playing the lead and sara playing rythm. Sara
(I think) is playing root-stum-strum (in 6/8 time) while Ma fills it in with some 
bass runs and what not.

I have tabbed out Ma's part below.  She hits the bass notes with her thumb and brushes across the
chords with her fingers ala the Carter Scratch.

On the record this song is in the key of B, so tune your guitar down 1/2 step to play along. This is 
very likely how they played it (see the Carter Family entry in Weeniepedia).


V = brush down
^ = brush up 

Tuning: 1/2 step down


(6/8 time)

[Intro]


Verse:

C                           F           C
I've found a sweet haven of sunshine at last,
                  G
and Jesus abiding above,
C                           F        C
His dear arms around me are lovingly cast
               G         C
and sweetly He tells His love


Chorus:

C
The tempest is o'er
(The danger, the tempest forever is o'er)

F            C
I'm safe evermore
(I'm anchored in hope and have faith evermore)

                              G
What gladness what rapture is mine
C
The danger is past
(The water's receding, the danger is past)

    F           C
I'm anchored at last
(I'm feeling so happy I'm anchored at last)

                G    C
I'm anchored in love divine


[Instrumental break]

C                        F        C
He saw me endangered and lovingly came
                         G
To pilot my storm-beaten soul
C                             F              C
Sweet peace He has spoken and bless His dear name
               G      C
The billows no longer roll


[Chorus]

[Instrumental Break]

C                                 F           C
His love shall control me through life and in death
                             G
Completely I'll trust to the end
C                               F             C
I'll praise Him each hour of my last fleeting breath
                 G           C
Shall sing of my soul's Best Friend

[Chorus]
