Happy Xmas(War is Over) - JOhn Lennon
The most meaningful Christmas song ever

There are many accurate tab for this song. But I have noticed that
the ending "war is over, if you want it..." is not really correct.
So here is what I reckon is the correct one.

Nice tab... one minor correction - the chord you labeled Ddim in your ending is actually Dmaj7
