Verse:
           A
So this is Christmas
                  Bm
And what have you done
             E
Another year over
                     A
And a new one just begun
               D
And so this is Christmas
               Em
And I hope you have fun
                 A
The near and the dear one
                D
The old and the young

Chorus:
             G
A very merry Christmas
                A
And a happy New Year
                       Em7  G
Let's hope it's a good one
            D    E
Without any fear

Verse:
               A
And so this is Christmas
                 Bm
For weak and for strong
                 E
For rich and for poor ones
                A
The world is so wrong
             D
And so happy Christmas
                  Em
For black and for white
                   A
For yellow and red ones
                   D
Let's stop all the fight

Chorus:
             G
A very merry Christmas
                A
And a happy New Year
                       Em7  G
Let's hope it's a good one
            D    E
Without any fear

Verse:
               A
And so this is Christmas
                  Bm
And what have you done?
             E
Another year over,
                     A
And a new one just begun
               D
And so this is Christmas
                Em
We hope you had fun
                 A
The near and the dear one
                D
The old and the young

Chorus:
             G
A very merry Christmas
                A
And a happy New Year
                       Em7  G
Let's hope it's a good one
            D    E
Without any fear

War is over,

If you want it

War is over

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
