About this tab version
This is my interpretation of the song, there are no actual tabs anywhere else for it so I tried to do it by ear, but there are quite a few changes from the original in the chorus. To play along with the original use capo 5th but I play with no capo. Was this info helpful? Yes No

  Am        E/Am     D         G
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
      Am    E/Am   F#/G   G
Their old familiar carols play,
    Dm       G         Em    A
And wild and sweet the words repeat
    C                    F    E  Am
Of peace on earth, good will to men

  Am           E/Am   D       G
I thought how, as the day had come,
    Am       E/Am   F#/G    G
The belfries of all Christendom
    Dm     G           Em     C
Had rolled along the unbroken song
   C                    F    E  Am
Of peace on earth, good will to men

    C            Dm       G
And in despair I bowed my head:
       C              F         G
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
     A7                 Dm        G
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
   C                    F    G  Am    
Of peace on earth, good will to men"

     Am         E/Am       D        G
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
Am     E/Am      F#/G        G
God is not dead, nor doth he sleep,
    Dm          G         Em    A
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
     C                    F    E  Am
With peace on earth, good will to men"
