Garth Brooks - Belleau Wood

Printable Version


From "Sevens" (1997)
(Joe Henry, Garth Brooks)

Oh the [Dsus4]snowfakes fell in [D]silence
Over [G]Belleau Wood that [D]night
For a [G]Christmas truce had [D]been declared
By [A]both sides of the fight
As we [Dsus4]lay there in our [D]trenches
The [G]silence broke in [Bm]two
By a [G]German soldier [D]singing
A [A]song that we all [D]knew

Though I [Dsus4]did not know the [D]language
The [G]song was "[A]Silent Night"[D]
Then I [G]heard my buddy [D]whisper
"All is [A]calm, and all is bright"
Then the [Dsus4]fear and doubt sur[D]rounded me
'Cause I'd [G]die if I was [Bm]wrong
But I [G]stood up in my [D]trench
And I be[A]gan to sing a[D]long

Then a[A]cross the frozen [G]battlefield
A[D]nother's voice joined [A]in
Until [G]one by one each [Bm]man became 
A [G]singer of the hymn [A]

Then I [Dsus4]thought that I was [D]dreaming
For [G]right there in my [D]sight
[G]Stood the German sold[D]ier
'Neath the [A]falling flakes of white
And he [Dsus4]raised his hand and [D]smiled at me
As [G]if he seemed to [Bm]say
Here's [G]hoping we both [D]live
To see us [A]find a better way [D]

Then the [A]devil's clock struck [G]midnight 
And the [D]skies lit up a[A]gain
And the [G]battlefield where [Bm]heaven stood
Was [G]blown to  hell a[A]gain

But for [Dsus4]just one fleeting mo[D]ment
The [G]answer seemed so [D]clear
[G]Heaven's not be[D]yond the clouds
It's [A]just beyond the [Bm]fear

No [G]Heaven's not be[D]yond the clouds
It's for [A]us to find it [Dsus4]here  [D]
