Capo
3rd fret
Very good song.  Not sure if these are all the chords.  There may be some in 
between some of these, but it sounds pretty good.

Capo 3

Intro:  Em C G D

                                Em           C 
I heard the bells on Christmas day
                           G         D
Their old familiar carols play
                                  Em              C
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
                                G          D
Of peace on earth good will to men

                        C     G
And the bells are ringing
           	         C      G
Like a choir they're singing
			   C  
In my heart I hear them
           Em                D
Peace on earth, good will to men


And in despair I bowed my head
There is no peace on earth I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men

But the bells are ringing
Like a choir singing
Does anybody hear them?
Peace on earth, good will to men

Em            D                   C
Then rang the bells more loud and deep
				Em          G      D
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
Em  		D2		C
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
              G 		   D
With peace on earth, good will to men
			    Em     C
Then ringing singing on its way
				  G           D    
The world revolved from night to day
				Em            C
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
				  G        D
Of peace on earth, good will to men

And the bells they're ringing
Like a choir they're singing
And with our hearts we'll hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

Do you hear the bells they're ringing?
The life the angels singing
Open up your heart and hear them
Peace on earth, good will to men

C        G      C         G
Peace on earth, Peace on earth
C        Em                  D
Peace on earth, Good will to men

In the intro, it is not D but B. Also, I think the verses sound a little more like this (only modification is the B at the end)
Em C
I heard the bells on Christmas day
G D
Their old familiar carols play
Em C
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
G B
Of peace on earth good will to men

The rest sounds pretty accurate :)

The B at the end is a B7

Now that you point it out, I agree
