A Spaceman Came Travelling – Chris de Burgh 

Capo V Fret
 
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.
