Intro: Am

Am    G             F                                
 I saw three kings riding through the desert as the day begins 
Am       G         F                   G
 We bring great joy to the birth of a baby boy
C                G           Dm                   Am
 By the star we have been led to this place that someone said 
      F                                   Em                Am
 The people that you're looking for have never been here at all

Am    G          F              
 I saw two birds one was a hawk, the other was a dove 
Am         G              F                G
 One said "I am war", the other one said, "I am love" 
C                 G               Dm                  Am
 As they flew up to the sky they got to close to the sun 
              F                  Em                Am
 And with a flash of light, the dove fell to the ground

  Am     G               F
    Sometimes we never know 
G Am          G                F
    When its time for letting go 
G Am      G                  F
    Last night I heard them say 
     C  G           D
    Noooo, we will never let that happen again
               F                  G             Am 
    But its a long long way from here to Bethlehem 
               F                  G             Am 
    Yes its a long long way from here to Bethlehem 

Am    G          F
 I saw St. Paul talking to the devil like the best of friends
Am                G                F                   G
 They said "lets make a deal and bring this curse and war to an end"
C                      G                Dm                            Am
 As they stood there shaking hands the devil signed his name to the plan 
          F                     Em              Am
 After a couple days there was nothing there at all

  Am     G               F
    Sometimes we never know 
G Am          G                F
    When its time for letting go 
G Am      G                  F
    Last night I heard them say 
     C  G           D
    Noooo, we will never let that happen again
               F                  G             Am 
    But its a long long way from here to Bethlehem 

  A         D             E      A
 Much has changed in the modern world
   A         D            E     A
 There's no time for the long ago 
  A     D        E      F#m
 Many problems that we have 
                F            G     A
 Are from the greatest story ever told

            Am
 And its a long long way to Bethlehem
        Am
 Its a long long way to Bethlehem
        Am
 Its a long long way to Bethlehem 
        Am
 Its a long long way
