       F     
Do you hear the people sing,
            Bb              F
Singing the song of mighty men,   
          Dm         G               C
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again,


          F    
When the beating of your heart,
           Bb              F 
Echoes the beating of the drum,
            Dm            Gm           C7     F
There is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.


E         Am 
Will you join in our crusade,
             Em      
Who will be strong and stand with me,
   Dm                           
Beyond the barricade is there a 
Am        
World you long to see,
      F                          Dm7                       G
Then join in the fight that will give you the right to be free,


        C               
Do you hear the people sing,
             F             C                   
Singing the song of angry men,   
          Am         D               G                   
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again,
 

          C              
When the beating of your heart,
            F              C                  
Echoes the beating of the drum,
            Am            Dm          G       C                   
There is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.


         Am                       
Will you give all you can give so that our 
Em
Banner may advance,
          Dm
Some will fall and some will live,
               Am              
Will you stand up and take the chance
     F                         Dm7                  G
The blood of the martyrs will water the meadows of France!


        C               
Do you hear the people sing,
             F             C                   
Singing the song of angry men,   
          Am         D               G                   
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again,


          C              
When the beating of your heart,
            F              C                  
Echoes the beating of the drum,
            Am            Dm          G7      C                   
There is a life about to start when tomorrow comes.

  1. i like +5!

    Guys, calm down. It’s just one word, and you all know the correct word. It’s fine

  3. It’s, “Do you hear the people sing, singing a song of ANGRY men…” Not, “Do you hear the people sing, singing a song of Mighty men…” Just saying.

  4. Omg thanks so much, love Les Misérables (the 2012 version) so glad this is on here it’s my favourite song from the movie! I do wish ‘Red and Black’s was on here tho ?

  5. I can play it… YAY!

  6. At the end, I like to pluck the A string on the third fret a couple of times to simulate the trumpet

  7. I haven’t played it yet, it looks well constructed, it is quite obvious that the one word everyone was commenting on has been changed.

  8. Great chords wrong lyrics

  9. It’s best if you try down down up up down as the rythem

  10. I feel the need to march around majestically when I play this.

  11. riptideuker97

    lol they are right! It is “angry men” in the movie, unless the original musical says “mighty men”. I wouldn’t know because I havent seen the original! :(

  12. Thank you so much! The tabs were amazing! Although, I believe it should not be ‘mighty men,’ but angry men. As well, I think the ending note should be an “F,” and not a “C.”
    Otherwise incredible!

  13. There chords are fab! Although there is one mistake! It’s not ‘mighty men’ it’s angry men.

  14. Lydiastigers

    Thank you sooooo much I LOVE Les Mis!!!

  15. I think its ‘angry’ men not mighty men. Otherwise, fantastic

  16. make sure the middle section has a defiant beat otherwise you can go off course

  17. madelinem3

    -5 is the best!
