This is sort of like a new age Christmas Carol. It was originally played by Boney M,
but this version is a little different.


G                C     Am    
Long time ago in Bethlehem, 

       D7         G
so the holy Bible say,

G                C     Am         
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ 

    G       D7        G
was born on Christmas day.


Chorus:

G         C        D      B7        Em       A      D
Hark, now hear the angels sing, the new king born today. 

    G                 C   Am     G        D7        G
And we shall live for evermore because of Christmas day!


G                            C         Am
While shepards watched their flocks by night, 

         D7                   G
They saw a bright new shining star.

    G                 C     Am
And then they heard a choir sing,

          G              D7    G
the music seemed to come from afar


Chorus:

G         C        D      B7        Em       A      D
Hark, now hear the angels sing, the new king born today. 

    G                 C   Am     G        D7        G
And we shall live for evermore because of Christmas day!


G                 C     Am
Then by and by in Bethlehem,

     D7            G
In a stable all forlorn.

G           C        Am   
In a manger cold and dark,

       G          D7        G
Mary's little boy child was born.
 

Chorus:

G         C        D      B7        Em       A      D
Hark, now hear the angels sing, the new king born today. 

    G                 C   Am     G        D7        G
And we shall live for evermore because of Christmas day!

    G                 C   Am     G        D7        G
And we shall live for evermore because of Christmas day!



Note: An effective ending would be to ritard(drastically slow down) on the last
"because of Christmas day"

Good Luck and Happy Holidays
