"|" marks the first beat of a bar




|C       |Em C   Em C   |C      |Em C   Em C
|C       |Em C   Em C   |C      |Em C   Em C

              |F    |G                 |C                |
It's Christmastime, there's no need to be afraid
            |F       |G                  |C              |
At Christmastime, we let in light and we banish shade
           |F       |G            |C                |F
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
           |Dm             |G                |C          |
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime


          |F     |G            |C                        |
But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
            |F        |G                    |C           |
At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun
          |F                 |G
There's a world outside your window
           |C                 |F
And it's a world of dread and fear
          |Dm        |G
Where the only water flowing
       |C              |F
Is the bitter sting of tears
        |Dm                  |G
And the Christmas bells that ring there
        |C                 |F
Are the clanging chimes of doom
       |Dm                  |G              |C           |
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you


          |F               |G          |C                |
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime
    |F                    |G               |C    |
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life, Ohhhh
      |F           |G
Where nothing ever grows
   |C              |F
No rain nor rivers flow
|Dm               |G               |C      |F   C
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

|Am
Here's to you
|G
Raise a glass for everyone
|Am
Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
|G
If the table was turned would you survive
|Am
Here's to them
|G
Underneath that burning sun
|Am
You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
|G
Give a little help to the helpless
|F                |G               
Do they know it's Christmastime at
|C       |Em C   Em C   |C      |Em C   Em C
all?

|C       |Em C   Em C   |C      |Em C   Em C
Feed the world
|C       |Em C   Em C   |C      |Em C   Em C
Feed the world
|C       |F   C   |F      |G        
Feed the world
|C       |F   C   |F      |G  
Feed the world
|C       |F   C
Feed the world
|F                 |G  
Let them know it's Christmastime again
|C       |F   C
Feed the world
|F                 |G  
Let them know it's Christmastime again
|C       |F   C
Feed the world
|F                 |G  
Let them know it's Christmastime again
|C       |F   C
Feed the world
|F                 |G  
Let them know it's Christmastime again

|C       |Bb      |Am      |G
|C       |Bb      |Am      |G

|C       |Bb      |Am      |G
Feed the world                - repeat to fade
