"Belleau Wood" Written by Joe Henry and Garth Brooks
Performed by Garth Brooks
Transcribed by David R. Welch
Finger pick through!

       Dsus              D
Oh the snowfakes fell in scilence
     G                 D

Over Belleau Wood that night
      G                        D
For a Christmas truce had been declared

By both sides of the fight

      Dsus             D
As we lay there in our trenches
     G               Bm
The silence broke in two
     G              D 
By a German soldier singing
   A               D
A song that we all knew
         Dsus             D
Though I did not know the language
     G        A          D
The song was "Silent Night"

       G              D 
Then I heard my buddy whisper,
"All is calm, and all is bright"
          Dsus           D
Then the fear and doubt surrounded me
           G            Bm
'Cause I'd die if I was wrong
       G             D
But I stood up in my trench
       A            D
And I began to sing along
     A                 G
Then across the frozen battlefield
D                      A

Another's voice joined in
      G               Bm

Until one by one each man became 

   G            A

A singer of the hymn
       Dsus                D
Then I thought that I was dreaming
    G                 D
For right there in my sight
G                D
Stood the German soldier
'Neath the falling flakes of white
    Dsus                D

And raised his hand and smiled at me
   G               Bm
As if he seemed to say
       G              D
Here's hoping we both live
          A             D

To see us find a better way
         A                    G
Then the devil's clock struck midnight 
         D           A

And the skies lit up again
        G                 Bm
And the battlefield where heaven stood
     G             A
Was blown to  hell again
         Dsus             D
But for just one fleeting moment
     G                D
The answer seemed so clear
G             D

Heaven's not beyond the clouds

     A               Bm

It's just beyond the fear
   G              D
No Heaven's not beyond the clouds
         A            Dsus           D
