Verse 1: 
          *You can either keep playing the intro tab through the verses 
like the piano does, or capo 3  and strum using chords in the key of G. 
The tab pattern is the same throughout pretty much the whole song. The 
chords in parenthesis are in G and the ones not in parenthesis are the 
same chords as in the intro.

                               Gm (Em)                                  
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Eb (C)                    Bb (G)
Their old familiar carols play
F (D)                           Gm (Em)
And mild and sweet their songs repeat
Eb (C)                         Bb (G)
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men


Chorus: 1

D7/A (B7)                   Eb(C)   Bb(G)
And the bells are ringing, (Peace on earth)
                               Eb(C)   Bb(G)
Like a choir they're singing, (Peace on earth)
                         Eb(C)    Gm(Em)             F(D)
In my heart I hear them, Peace on earth, goodwill to men


Verse 2:                 
                          (Em)
And in despair I bowed my head
(C)                          (G)
There is no peace on earth I said
(D)                              (Em)
For hate is strong and mocks the song
(C)                            (G)
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men


Chorus 2:

(B7)                        (C)      (G)
But the bells are ringing, (Peace on earth)
                       (C)       (G)
Like a choir singing, (Peace on earth)
                         (C)      (Em)              (D)
Does anybody hear them?  Peace on earth, goodwill to men


Bridge:

C              
Then rang the bells more loud and deep
                              Em
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
           D
(Peace on earth, peace on earth)
C
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
              G
