Song Author Chris de Burgh Lyrics by: Chris de Burgh Performer: Chris de Burgh Submitted by: arniodinsson
Capo 5

A [Am]spaceman came [C]travelling on his [G]ship from a[Am]far,   
'twas [C]light years of [G]time since his[F] mission did [F]start[G],  
And [Am]over a [Em]village he [F]halted his [Am]craft,
And it [C]hung in the [G]sky like a [F]star, just [F]like [G]a   [Am]star.

He [Am]followed a [C]light and came [G]down to a [Am]shed,
Where a [C]mother and a [G]child were lying [F]there on a [F]bed, [G]    
A [Am]bright light of [Em]silver [F]shone round his [Am]head,
And [C]he had the [G]face of an [F]angel, and [F]they [G]were a[Am]fraid.

Then the [Am]stranger [C]spoke, he said [G] "Do not [Am]fear,
I [C]come from a [G]planet a [F]long way from [F]here, [G]    
And [Am]I bring a [Em]message for [F]mankind to [Am]hear",
And [C]suddenly the [G]sweetest [F]music [F]filled [G]the [Am]air.   

And [F]it   [G]went [Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]la, la, la, [G]la, la, la, [F]la, [F]    [G]    
[Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]Peace and good[G]will to all [F]men, and [F]love [G]for the [Am]child.

[F]    [G]    [Am]La, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]la, la, la, [G]la, la, la, [F]la, [F]    [G]    
[Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]oh, [G]oh, [F]oh.  

This [Am]lovely [C]music went [G]trembling through the [Am]ground,
And [C]many were [G]wakened on [F]hearing that [F]sound, [G]    
And [Am]travellers on the [Em]road, the [F]village they [Am]found,
By the [C]light of that [G]ship in the [F]sky,
which [F]shone [G]all A[Am]round.

And [Am]just before [C]dawn at the [G]paling of the [Am]sky,   
The [C]stranger re[G]turned and said [F]"Now I must [F]fly, [G]    
When [Am]two thousand [Em]years of your [F]time has gone [Am]by,   
This [C]song will be[G]gin once a[F]gain, to a [F]ba  [G]by's [Am]cry".

And [F]it   [G]went [Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]la, la, la, [G]la, la, la, [F]la, [F]    [G]    
[Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]Peace and good[G]will to all [F]men, and [F]love [G]for the [Am]child.

And [F]I   [G]hear [Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
[C]la, la, la, [G]la, la, la, [F]la, [F]    [G]    
[Am]la, la, la, [Em]la, la, la, [F]la, la, la, [Am]la,   
This [C]song will be[G]gin once a[F]gain, to a [F]ba  [G]by's [Am]cry.   

Oh the whole [F]world is [G]waiting,
[Am] (la, la, la) [Em] (la) waiting to [F]hear that song a[Am]gain   
[C](la) There are thousands [G]standing on the [F]edge of the world, [F]    [G]    
[Am](la) And a star is moving [Em]somewhere,
and the [F]time is nearly [Am]here,
This [C]song will be[G]gin once a[F]gain, to a [F]ba  [G]by's [Am]cry.   

Capo 5

A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
'twas light years of time since his mission did start,
And over a village he halted his craft,
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star.

He followed a light and came down to a shed,
Where a mother and a child were lying there on a bed,
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid.

Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
I come from a planet a long way from here,
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air.

And it went la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Peace and goodwill to all men, and love for the child.

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
oh, oh, oh.

This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
And many were wakened on hearing that sound,
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
By the light of that ship in the sky,
which shone all Around.

And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly,
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry".

And it went la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Peace and goodwill to all men, and love for the child.

And I hear la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry.

Oh the whole world is waiting,
(la, la, la) (la) waiting to hear that song again
(la) There are thousands standing on the edge of the world,
(la) And a star is moving somewhere,
and the time is nearly here,
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry.
