†† to the peace of the heavenly angels,

†††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††C

††† take away that woeful shadow dancing on your wall.

††††† C†††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††C7

††† Take to the skies of peace, oh friends,

†††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††C

††† of peace of the one great spirit

††††††††††† G††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††C

††† get ready for my bugle call of peace.

 

†† C††††††††††††††††† †††C7 †††††††††††††††F††††††††††††††††††††† C

Peace, peace, peace, I can hear the bugle sounding,

G†††††† †††††††††††††††††††G7†††††††† C

roaming round my land, my city and my town.

††† C††††††††††††††††††† C7††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††† †††C

Peace, peace, peace, I can hear the voices ringing

G†††††††††††††††††††††† G7††††††††††††††††††† C

louder, while my bugle calls for peace.

2. Thick war clouds will throw their shadows,

††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† darkening the world around you,

††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† in my life of peace your dark illusions fall.

†††††† C†††††††††††††††††† C7

3. If these war storms fill your heart

††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

††† with a thousand kinds of worry,
