A Spaceman Came Travelling  Chris de Burgh

[G] [F] [C] [Dm]  
[F]F [C]C [Dm]Am Em7(It is actually this) but Dm(sounds better)
Am C Dm, Am Dm
[F] [C] [Dm]  
Verse 1
A [G]spaceman came [F]travelling on his [C]ship from [Dm]afar,
twas [F]light years of [C]time since his [Dm]mission did start,
And [F]over a [C]village he [Am]halted his [Em7/Dm]craft,
And it [Am]hung in the [C]sky like a [Dm]star, [Am]just like a [Dm]star...
Verse 2
He [G]followed [F]light and came [C]down to a [Dm]share,
Where a [F]mother and a [C]child were lying there on a [Dm]bed,
A [F]bright light of [C]silver [Am]shone round his [Em7/Dm]head,
And he [Am]had the [C]face of an [Dm]angel, and [Am]they were [Dm]afraid...
Verse 3 (Continues same as Verse 1 and 2)
(Same Chords as last two
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 [F]la, la, la, [C]la, la, la, [Dm]la, la la [Dm]la
[Am]Peace and good[C]will to all [Dm]men, and [Am]love for the [Dm]child...
Verse 4 (Continues same as Verse 1 and 2)
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 round...
Verse 5 (Continues same as Verse 1 and 2)
And just before dawn at the paving 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 babys cry...
And it went la la... this [Am]song will [C]begin once [Dm]again
To a [Am]babys [Dm]cry...
And it goes la la... [Am]peace and good[C]will to all [Dm]men
And [Am]love for the [Dm]child...
Oh the whole world is waiting, [Am]waiting to [C]hear that song [Dm]again,
[Am]There are thousands s[C]tanding on the edge of the [Dm]world,
[Am]And a star is moving s[C]omewhere, the time is nearly h[Dm]ere,
[Am]This song will [C]begin once [Dm]again, to a [Am]babys [Dm]cry...
Let me know what you think
