A Spaceman Came Travelling Chords

   
Spaceman Came Travellin’

  Am            C                 G         Am
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
      C              G              F                 FG
'twas light years of time since his mission did start,
    Am     Em         F          Am
And over a village he halted his craft,
       C           G          F            F 
G  Am
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star.

   Am         C              G         Am
He followed a light and came down to a shed,
        C            G                F          F G
Where a mother and a child were lying there on a bed,
  Am              Em     F               Am
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
    C          G          F          F G    
   Am
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid.

         Am       C              G       Am
Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
  C           G        F             F G
I come from a planet a long way from here
    Am        Em          F          Am
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
    C            G        F     F G        Am
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air.

    F  G    Am      Em              F       
  Am
And it went la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
C           G           F   F G
La, la, la, la, la, la, la,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
C              G           F        F    G  
     Am
Peace and good will to all men, and love for the child.

     Am     C          G                     Am
This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
    C         G          F            F G
And many were wakened on hearing that sound,
    Am                Em        F            Am
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
       C             G           F
By the light of that ship in the sky,
      F     G   Am
Which shone all around

    Am          C           G             Am
And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
    C          G               F           F G
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly,
     Am           Em            F             Am
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
     C           G         F          F G   
 Am
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry".

Chorus x2 end w/ "To a baby’s cry"

Note: This is not the entire song, but I couldn't find any versions that had this layout
