About this tab version
This version covers very closely the recording, advising what effects to use. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Wah unless otherwise specified
Dotted 8th delay
Listen for the timing of these parts as some come after the section of music listed against.

[First Verse]
The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep

[Chorus 1]
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,
Born is the King of Israel.
