Belleau Wood  Garth Brooks









[D]Oh, the snowflakes fell in [D/F#]silence
Over [Bm]Belleau [A]Wood that [D]night
For a [G]Christmas truce had [D]been declared
By [A]both side of the fight
As we [D]lay there in our [D/F#]trenches
The [G]silence broke in two
By a German soldier [D]singing
A [A]song that we all [D]knew [A]
Though I [D]did not know the [D/F#]language
The [Bm]song was "[A]Silent [D]Night"
Then I [G]heard my buddy [D]whisper,
"All is cal[A]m and all is bright"
Then the [D]fear and doubt su[D/F#]rrounded me
'Cause I'd [G]die if I was wrong
But I stood up in my [D]trench
And I bega[A]n to sing alo[D]ng
Then a[A]cross the frozen battlefield
Anot[G]her's voice joined [D]in
Until [G]one by one each [D/F#]man became
A [Em]singer of the [A]hymn
Then I [D]thought that I was [D/F#]dreaming
For [Bm]right there [A]in my [D]sight
[G]Stood the German [D]soldier
'Neath the [A]falling flakes of white
And he [D]raised his hand and [D/F#]smiled at me
A[G]s if he seemed to say
Here's hoping we both [D]live
To see us [A]find a better [D]way
Then the [A]devil's clock struck midnight
And the [G]skies lit up agai[D]n
And the [G]battlefield where [D/F#]heaven stood
Was [Em]blown to hell a[A]gain
But for j[D]ust one fleeting [D/F#]moment
The [G]answer seemed so clear
Heaven's not beyo[D]nd the clouds
It's j[A]ust beyond the [Bm]fear [A]
No, [G]heaven's not beyo[D]nd the clouds
It's for [A]us to find it [D]here
