Lyrics and Guitar Chords Aid 30 - Do They Know Its Christmas

Intro: G C G

C              D               G
It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid
C       D                    G
At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade

C         D              G                 C
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Am               D                  G
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

C      D               G
But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
C         D                     G
At Christmas time it's hard, but when you're having fun
C                   D
There's a world outside your window
G                   C
And it's a world of dread and fear
Am                D
Where a kiss of love can kill you
G               C
And there’s death in every tear
Am                    D
And the Christmas bells that ring there
G                 C
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Am                   D               G
Well tonight we’re reaching out and touching you

C                   D                  G
Bring peace and joy this Christmas to West Africa
C                  D            G
A song of hope when there’s no hope tonight
C               D
Why is comfort to be feared?
G                C
Why is to touch to be scared?
Am                  D                G      C      G
How can they know it's Christmas time at all?

Em              D
Here's to you, raise a glass for everyone
Em                   D
Here's to them, and all their years to come
C                D               G
Let them know it's Christmas after all
C       G
Feed the world
C        G          Am           D
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
G         C  G
Feel the world
C         G         Am         D
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
G         C    G
Heal the world
C        G         Am         D       G
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
