Chords
Transpose:
A E7 ACome fill up your glasses with whiskey and beer
E B7 E7And drink a full glass to a happy new year
A D E7To our sisters and brothers, and may they live long,
A D ASo lift up your glasses and join in this song
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 ALong life to the miners the whole world around,
E B7 E7Who spend their days in a hole underground,
A D E7Whose road is a tunnel, whose day is the night,
A D AOut of danger and darkness they bring light
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 AOur thanks too the fishermen and safe may they toil,
E B7 E7And also to the farmer who turns up the soil;
A D E7To the ploughmen and shepherds and all men of worth,
A D AWhose joy is to harvest the fruits of the earth.
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 AHere's to the drivers and firemen and the rest of the team,
E B7 E7Who keep the stock rolling by diesel and steam,
A D E7To the cleaners and shunters who work night and day,
A D AAnd the track laying gangs on the permanent way.
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 AA toast to the casual laboring man,
E B7 E7Who lives where his work is, who works where he can,
A D E7To the builders and spidermen and bold engineers,
A D AMay your wages keep rising, lads, over the years.
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 ATo the writers and artists, then, let's drink a health,
E B7 E7To people whose hopes, and whose dreams are our wealth,
A D E7Whose tools are but canvas or paper and pen,
A D AWhose harvest is the future and the progress of men,
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 ALet the men drink a health to their sweethearts and wives,
E B7 E7And the ladies, being willing, will greet them likewise,
A D E7May your pleasures be many, your troubles bu few,
A D AMay you treasure the day you made one out of two.
E7 A D E7So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
A D E7 ATo peace on earth and good will among men
A E7 ALet's drink to our children and let us prepare,
E B7 E7A world where they'll live free from sorrow and care,
A D E7A world where goodwill among men is the law,
A D AA world without fallout, a world without war.
