Notes: This is one of my favourite songs. I loved it the first time I heard it. 
Today I decided to give you the proper chords, since I found many wrong or 
slightly wrong versions. This one is clean ;-)

Verse 1
======

  Dm            F                 C         Dm
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar 
       F              C              Bb                  C
't was light years of time since his mission did start. 
    Dm     Am         Bb         Dm
And over a village he halted his craft 
       F           C          Bb          Bb   C Dm
and it hung in the sky like a star - just like a star.

Verse 2
======

He followed a light and came down to a shed 
where mother and child were lying there on a bed. 
A bright light of silver shone round his head 
and he had the face of an angel. And they were afraid 

Verse 3
======
When the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear! 
I come from a planet a long way from here, 
and I bring a message for mankind to hear." 
Suddenly the sweetest music filled the air 
     
Chorus
======
Dm  Bb C     
and it went, 
Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, 
F           C           Bm          C
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, 
Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, 
F           C           Bm        
Peace and good will to all men, ------
    Bb   C       Dm
and love for the child.---------------

Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, 
F           C           Bm          C
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, 
F           C           Bm        
La,la,la -----------------------------
    Bb   C       Dm
---------------------------------------

Verse 4
======
This lovely music went trembling through the ground 
and many were wakened on hearing the sound 
and travellers on the road the village the found 
by the light of that ship in the sky 
which shone all around.

Verse 5
======

And just before dawn at the paling of the sky 
the stranger returned and said: "Now I must fly! 
When two thousand years of your time has gone by 
 ,this song will begin once again to a baby's cry!"

Chorus (s.a.)
======
