      tabbed by michael diaz. I'll tab the first verse and the second and last is the same. 


       C         G      Am
      Oh little town of Bethlehem
               F           C  G Am F
Looks like another silent night
C          G                  Am
Above your deep and dreamless sleep
         F                  C G Am F
A giant star lights up the sky
  C                G           Am
And while you're lying in the dark
        F                      C G Am F
There shines an everlasting light
C       G                   Am
For the King has left His throne
        F                    C G Am F
And is sleeping in a manger tonight

  C          G                Am                    F
Oh Bethlehem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
 C                G
For God became a man
             Am             F
And stepped into your world today
C            G             Am         F
Oh Bethlehem, you will go down in history
     C            G             Am
As a city with no room for its King
F                  C G Am F
While you were sleeping
                   C
While you were sleeping

Oh little town of Jerusalem
Looks like another silent night
The Father gave His only Son
The Way, the Truth, the Life had come
But there was no room for Him in the world He came to save

Jerusalem, what you have missed while you were sleeping
The Savior of the world is dying on your cross today
Jerusalem, you will go down in history
As a city with no room for its King
While you were sleeping
While you were sleeping

United States of America
Looks like another silent night
As we're sung to sleep by philosophies
That save the trees and kill the children
And while we're lying in the dark
There's a shout heard 'cross the eastern sky
For the Bridegroom has returned
And has carried His bride away in the night

America, what will we miss while we are sleeping
Will Jesus come again
And leave us slumbering where we lay
America, will we go down in history
As a nation with no room for its King
Will we be sleeping
Will we be sleeping

United States of America
Looks like another silent night

This is wrong. The progression is F-C-Dm-B. and down, up down up down down up down up is the best progression for this song if anyone is curious.
