    Christmas Bells - John Gorka

Capo 3

| C | G6 | Fmaj7-6 | Am G | F | Am G | F G | Am G | F | Fmaj7 |

C                       G6
   I heard the bells on Christmas day
      Fmaj7-6      Am     G
Their old familiar carols play
    F                   Am      G
And wild and sweet, the words repeat
   F        G           Am          G
Of peace on earth, good will to men
F        G           C
Peace on earth, good will to men

  C                   G6
I thought how, as the day had come
    Fmaj7-6         Am          G
The belfries of all Christendom
    F                  Am     G
Had rolled along the unbroken song
   F        G           Am          G
Of peace on earth, good will to men
F        G           C
Peace on earth, good will to men

      Fmaj7-6       Am       G
  And in despair, I bowed my head
         F              Am        G
  "There is no peace on earth," I said
      F                   Am        G
  For hate is strong, and mocks the song
     F        G           Am          G
  Of peace on earth, good will to men
  F        G           C
  Peace on earth, good will to men

| C | G6 | Fmaj7-6 | Am G | F | Am G | F G | Am G | F | Fmaj7 |

     C                      G6
Then pealed the bells, more loud and deep
    Fmaj7-6          Am      G
God is not dead, nor doth he sleep
    F                     Am       G
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
     F        G           Am          G
With peace on earth, good will to men
F        G           C
Peace on earth, good will to men

  C                  G6
I heard the bells on Christmas day
      Fmaj7-6      Am     G
Their old familiar carols play
F                      Am      G
   Wild and sweet, the words repeat
   F        G           Am          G
Of peace on earth, good will to men
F        G           C
Peace on earth, good will to men
F        G           Am
Peace on earth, good will to men
