A beautifully haunting little ballad by EC&A.  One of my faves from Goodbye Cruel 
World, and it was pretty easy to figure out.  Song is in 3/4 time and the key of D Major.

Intro:
F        C   A

Verse 1:
D                                                                
Out of the aeroplane stepped Chamberlain with a condemned man's stare
    D                        D    
But we all cheered wildly, a photograph was taken,
      D7                             G
as he waved a piece of paper in the air
        Em                     Em/D#                 Em7       A 
Now the Disco Machine lives in Munich and we are all friends 
      A7                                              A
And I slip on my Italian dancing shoes as the evening descends

Chorus:
        D                Dmaj7     D6       D7/A    
And the bells take their toll once again in victory chime 
    G            Bm             Em      A
And we can thank God that we've finally got
         D 
peace in our time

Verse 2:
          D                             
There's a man going round taking names no 
matter who you claim to be 
    D                      
As innocent as babies, a mad dog with rabies,
       D7                           G 
you're still a part of some conspiracy
     Em                            Em/D# 
Meanwhile there's a light over the ocean
                          Em7          A 
burning brighter than the sun 
      A7
And a man sits alone in a bar and says "Oh God, 
               A
what have we done?"

Chorus:
        D                Dmaj7     D6       D7/A    
And the bells take their toll once again in victory chime 
    G            Bm             Em      A
And we can thank God that we've finally got
         D 
peace in our time

Instrumental Bridge: 
D      A7   F#
Bm     E   A     Bm

Verse 3:
        D            
They're lighting a bonfire upon every hilltop in the land
     D                            
Just another tiny island invaded when he's got
    D7                 G 
the whole world in his hands
        Em                          Em/D#  
And the Heavyweight Champion fights in the
                   Em7             A 
International Propaganda Star Wars 
          A7
There's already one spaceman in the White
                                   A 
House, what do you want another one for?

Chorus:
        D                Dmaj7     D6       D7/A    
And the bells take their toll once again in victory chime 
    G            Bm             Em      A
And we can thank God that we've finally got

Outro: 
         D             
peace in our time.

Nice job, but I believe the correct chords on the first line of chorus are:

D F#m Bm D7/A
And the bells take their toll once again in victory chime

And I believe the chorus chords on the Outro are:

D A7 F# Bm E A Bm F# Bm/A A D
